Community Hub

The Community Hub is a volunteer initiative aimed at connecting internationals and Norwegians through fun-filled activities. Our aim is to cultivate a community of organisations, partner initiatives, and international volunteers to build social networks. We strongly believe that active participation in a vibrant community enriches the lives of internationals in Agder and promotes long-term residency.

Community Hub activities

  • Volunteer Drop-in & Workshop

    Joining a volunteer group is more than just signing up; it's about embracing a community, and making a tangible difference. Come to our weekly volunteer meeting where we'll gather to discuss our upcoming projects, share ideas, and strengthen our community. Be part of a movement dedicated to positive change. 

    Thursdays, 12:00-13:00
    Welcome Hub Agder, Torvgaten 7, Arendal 

  • Foraging for edible plants 

    Roberta Dahl will take you on a guided tour where you will discover an array of edible plants which we pass by everyday without knowing that we can pluck and savour them. Let the magic of foraging for edible plants awaken your senses and inspire your culinary imagination.

    We have limited spots so please register early!

  • Grow a vegetable garden

    A beautiful plot of land has been made available for us to start growing plants and vegetables in Austre Moland (approx 15 minutes drive from the Arendal town centre). This is a free-and-easy project ie one can go and plant whenever one is free. Carpooling to the plot will also be possible.

  • Edible Flowers

    Our resident foraging expert, Roberta Dahl, is back again and this time she’ll take us on a sensory adventure foraging for edible flowers. Start garnishing salads with vibrant petals, infusing beverages with floral notes, or creating stunning desserts adorned with edible blooms.

    There are limited spots, registration required.
