Hi...new to HelpX but excited. We have 2 properties. A farm on the Mornington Peninsula where we run a local produce market every weekend from our old train. I'm Mark by the way, I could really use some help around the place getting the garden up to a standard where it can be open to the public. I have extensive vegetable gardens, natives, succulents and palms. Also resident are Rosie (our pig) and her 4 kids, our chooks and ducks and a couple of lambs due any day to keep the grass down. Most important tho is Molly my little blind dog! I am also renovating the house...so yes there is lots to do :)
My partner Chris is based down in South Gippsland at our big farm (100 acres) where we run a herd of Dexter cattle and flock of milking sheep. We are working towards being self-sufficient in food in the short term. There is always plenty to do down there, with fencing and general maintenance. We are also undertaking re-vegetation work in "wombat falls gully"
I would be very flexible as to work hours and time off, as I understand that 'helpers' also want to get out and see stuff...20 odd years ago I backpacked (alone) overland from Hong Kong to London and was away a total of 8 years, so yes I know a bit about travelling :)
The work I have is pretty physical so you would need to be fit and strong. My intention is to work with you so you won't be expected to work alone.
Accommodation is a room in the house, or if you prefer we have Alby...a 1940's caravan. I eat well, mainly what we produce ourselves, little or no processed foods, but again happy to be flexible.
Our properties are non-smoking and drug free.
