Also wild birds that live around our farm need diversity in nature. We have built 12 birdhouses around our home and we feed carefully birds true long winter.
Traditional Sámi handcraft are made from nature materials. I make these handcrafts from pine tree roots, fish and reindeer leather and fish bones.
