My wife and I are semi-retired on a small rural property ten minutes drive from Kyneton (one hour train journey from Melbourne). We live in a mud brick cottage with room for guests.
We have vacancies for volunteers during March.Sometimes we have some paid work so we may be able to help with second year visas after a suitable trial period.
Helpers are expected to do their share of household chores such as cleaning,washing up,cooking.Our volunteers work from eight-thirty a.m. to twelve-thirty p.m.,five days a week. Breakfast is after seven a.m. and lunch is at one p.m.Absolutely no smokers please. We eat very well here and usually bake pizza and bread in one of our several wood fired ovens at least once a week.Vegetarians are welcome. Our passion is to embark on projects which are aimed at gradually changing our circumstances so we are living more sustainably. .
There is plenty for volunteers to see and experience within half an hour's drive from Kyneton.We have bikes available for independent sightseeing.Kyneton is an easy ride from where we live.From there, you can take a train or bus to other country centres or back to Melbourne.
For those who want to learn alternative construction skills this is an ideal opportunity.We have amassed a huge amount of experience, having worked in alternative building for 35 years.
Jobs at the moment are quite varied ranging from horticultural work to construction work like sawmilling and building jobs using mud bricks.
