Hello Hepful Helpers :)

We have space for 1 full time and 1 part time helpers in a shared room, from Wednesday, 29th May 2018. You can stay for 2-6 weeks, with a one-week trial initially.

We are a spiritually inclined (non denominational and non religious) and slightly strangely structured family - currently we are 3 adults and 2 kids. Our house and lifestyle are modest and in some ways unusual, as we are a family that is more interested in joy than in historical social conventions. So if you can enjoy living outside of the box a little, you will enjoy living here.

We are interested in harmony, and we are always keen to talk about all kinds of meditation, world music and dance, natural farming, co-operative economics, etc. we would be keen to go deep into most subjects, and you might be challenged by our way of seeing thing, but we will not impose our ideas on anyone, as independent minds are our first priority. our interest in creating harmony doesnít always mean we manage to achieve it, but it does mean we work toward achieving it relentlessly.

We love to have people stay with us not just to help us with the work, but also to celebrate life with us, and be part of our community.

We currently need help mostly with childcare, housekeeping, house re-arranging &gardening. We may have bigger projects - but that always changes. we are open to your initiatives and ideas. In fact, initiative is a huge love of ours. We like it when people can observe and then know what is the best thing to do when.

We are vegetarian and vegetarian food is what is on offer to you. We also donít eat Onion & garlic. Shocking as it may be, You might find you donít miss those much when you are here. Our house is completely alcohol and smoke free. There is no negotiation on this point.

Basic technical definitions:
Full-time helper = 20 hours per week. This usually translates to 3-4 hours per day, depending on how many days a week you work.

Part-time helper = 12-15 hours per week + $40 per week, which will pay some of your food. This enables us to have more people and avoid going bankrupt ;).

If you want to just stay with us, and work less than 12 hours per week, we can negotiate that too. We are quite flexible and can negotiate agreements according to your personal needs and our situation at the time. We would appreciate your openness about your plans and changing situations in advance.

In any case, we will expect you to give a hand as you would in a share house, so washing dishes and cleaning up after yourself etc., is done by all house members. People who can treat our house as if it were their own, and take responsibility where itís needed, are our kind of people. If you just want to do your hours and then spend the rest of the day in your room, there are LOADS of families that would give you exactly that here in Helpx perth.

In exchange for your help we will give you all of your meals, access to all the facilities of the house, TLC, conversation, and much more. This "more" includes but is not restricted to going out on hikes, joining yoga /dance / tai chi, and sitting together playing music, or games. Your interests can influence our choice of fun.

If you are interested to stay with us please tell us a little about yourself.
