Please note that the very hot January weather has made us realise that our property is not adequately protected from bush fires during summer. So therefore we have decided to not accommodate helpers until autumn, say from mid March onwards.

Our is a semi rural property about 50 minutes drive north of Melbourne CBD or little over 1 hour by train.
Spacious home. Ornamental garden amid natural bush, with a developing organic vegetable garden.
We also have 8 chickens and a dog. Car may be needed. The closest general store is 2 kilometres away ie. about 20 minutes walk. A small township is about 3 and a half kilometres. Lovely area.

We, the owners are active, semi retired couple in early 60's. My husband is a builder by trade, and I'm a horticulturalist and part time language teacher with a growing passion for environmental issues. We would envisage helpers to mainly assist with developing the vegetable and food growing aspects of our property. Helpers would have a good sized bedroom, own bathroom and share the common areas of the house. Our preference is to have a flexible boarding situation with some meals cooked by host but for helper to be otherwise independent.
