Hi! We are a family of four: mum,dad and our beautiful boys 7 & 9. We live in the Yarra Valley in the pretty town of Healesville. We work from home running a natural health centre and are looking for a live in helper in exchange for all meals and accomodation.
We also have a beautiful little organic farm on the mountain nearby where we grow food and keep bees chickens, puppies and sheep. There are kangaroos, wombats, many birds and amazing bushwalks nearby.
Our passions are growing organic food, designing beautiful gardens, natural health;( shiatsu, naturopathy, yoga, meditation,) playing music (violin, guitar ,
cello) and playing table tennis!

Jobs we need help with are gardening, growing vegies, fencing, feeding/ cleaning animals, child minding, housework (washing vacuuming etc). We could also really use some help in September-October from a carpenter or cabinetmaker or handy person as we will be re building the kitchen then. We ask for 4 hours active help per day with 1 day off per week.

We would ideally like someone who enjoys interacting with children and in family life and can be self motivated and responsible. we ask that helpers be mindful of their phone usage, if you are addicted to your phone and would rather sit and stare at a screen than share in this beautiful place then this is probably not the right place for you.
We would also like it if you could stay at least 1 week and then we can discuss longer if it works well :)
We hope to make your time with us really lovely.

We look forward to hearing from you.
