Our property is mostly native Australian vegetation that is still recovering from a major bushfire in recent years.
We are committed to environmentally friendly, chemical free practice, conservation and biodiversity principals and we are involved with the local land care group.
We would like to develop a sustainable food garden and a small orchard at some time in the near future.
There is always plenty to do with maintaining the surrounding bushland vegetation that forms a part of a broader wildlife corridor for Kangaroos, Wombats, Echidnas, Owls and many other native birds.
Handy persons with a variety of skills or a willingness to learn are most welcome. Help with GRASS CUTTING, collection of FIRE WOOD, GENERAL HOUSE, PROPERTY and GARDEN MAINTENANCE is always appreciated.
Working times are flexible, 2 - 4 hrs a day depending on what we need help with at the time in exchange for accommodation and mostly vegetarian meals, (can accommodate special dietary requirements if necessary) .
Our power is supplied by a 5kw grid connected solar power system.
We rely solely on a rain water supply for drinking, household and garden water consumption so water conservation is a high priority here and even more so during the summer months.
Accommodation is a basic bunk room that can accommodate a couple and singles.
Kitchen and bathroom facilities are shared.
We endeavour to make visitors feel comfortable & at home.
We are also connected to a vibrant music and arts community and welcome visitors whom also share such interests.
There are many visitor attractions in the local area including wineries, galleries, cafes, open air markets, walking trails, recreation and wildlife parks.
We are 4kms from a small town with a regular bus service that links to the metropolitan rail service. Pick up and drop off can be arranged.
