Please consider the below when contacting us:
* We are an exchange opportunity only.
* We are not able to assist with 2nd Year Visa
We are a small holding of 13 acres in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, 1 hour north of Brisbane, where we grow the tastiest blueberries in Australia :)
Only 9 kms to Beerwah rail line, you have access to many places on the coast such as Noosa, Mooloolaba and Caloundra, plus hinterland icons such as Maleny and Montville.
Activities during your stay with us may include:
* Picking blueberries
* Weeding the blueberry rows,
* Mulching the blueberry rows, and
* Lawn mowing just to name a few
Joining our family includes helping out with the daily chores such as:
* Feeding and tending the goats and chickens
* Collecting eggs of course :)
* Light housework (everyone helps)
* Assisting in maintaining the vegetable gardens and plant beds.
We are looking for a couple, or 2/3 friends, who are interested in learning about biodynamic activities and how we grow blueberries in a sub tropical environment, and who are keen to fit in as part of our family life.
We request about 4 hours per day (some days more, some less depending on the weather) per person in return for comfortable sleeping accommodation in groovy refurbished retro caravans.These are undercover and are just a few metres from the house. Facilities are located in the main house, with kitchen and living room.
We expect that our helpers will have a great work ethic, have a positive outlook and be self motivated as you will be required to work independently with little or no supervision for several days of the week.
Benefits to enjoy during your own time include:
* swimming in the in ground pool
* enjoy walks along the river and beyond
We look forward to hearing from you.
