Hi I am looking for people who want to stay in beautiful Crystal Waters and Maleny whilst giving me a hand with general painting and, cleaning and gardening tasks. The Maleny place is walking distance to the township and half an hours drive to the most beautiful beaches in Australia. I also have a place in the country , Crystal Waters eco village where I spend a day or 2 each week and you would be welcome to come and help with the farm. 5 hours of your time in exchange for accommodation and food is the usual exchange
The farm:
Since 20 years I have been developing a fully functional permaculture plot within Permaculture Village Crystal Waters. Prior to that I taught Permaculture courses in Paddington, Brisbane.
I have 3 m swales with fruit and nut tree orchards. My aim was anything edible or beautiful to look at, so I planted many flowers.
I designed my house and build it with the help of a builder, friends and woofers. It is made with timber and mud brick. The mud bricks where made on the site and the timber bought, but I have since replaced all the wood that used, building the house, by planting a small rain forest to the south of the block.
The tasks at hand are (always) weeding, making compost, stacking firewood, making rock walls and pathways, depending on weather and skills of the helpers. Need to make the following clear, as I am getting inquiries from people who are looking for paid jobs:
All help will be exchanged for accommodation and good food. No $ will be exchanged.
looking forward to all x changers.
