About Your Host, Dagmar

I travelled quite a bit when I was young and believe that meeting local people really is the best way to get to know a place. I was born in Germany and moved to Sweden when I was a young woman. Now I’m a pensioner, but young at heart. I have children and grandchildren. One of my biggest interests is my allotment house and garden. Having a garden is creative, educational and a never-ending project. Having a garden is a way of life! I however still love travelling. I hope to meet garden enthusiasts from near and far.

Who this is for

Anyone who is interested in gardening, maybe even has an allotment themselves, or just likes being in the beautiful greenery, having coffee and tea and small talk about weather, wind and life.
