Astrid Anna Emilia Ericsson was born here on the farm at Näs, in Vimmerby, over 100 years ago. She, who later became the world renowned author Astrid Lindgren. This is where she climbed the lemonade tree and played in the wood shed. This is where she jumped in the hay and listened to fairy tales in Kristin`s kitchen. This is where all of her writing begins.

Wander through the wild rose garden, enjoy the apple orchard and the plum grove, enjoy the green art installations in the rectory garden, take in the story of Astrid Lindgren´s life, her inspiration and authorship. The gardens are a place that offer information, experiences and are full of splendor and surprise.
