We are located in the idyllic valley of Lorinna; an active, vibrant rural community with a strong co-operative ethos, frequent communal events and working bees, a food co-op, abundant wildlife and wonderfully clean soil, air and water.
We live on a property with several other households with whom we share work and resources and a stand-alone photovoltaic and micro-hydro power system.
We are a family of four with a 5 year old daughter and a 2 year old son whom we homeschool with a natural learning approach.
Currently we primarily need help playing with the children and helping around the house and garden.
We may also need help working on a number of natural building projects. Building tasks will include timber framing with timber we mill ourselves, straw bale, light clay-straw and cob construction, earth rendering, mosaic and other artistic projects.
Visitors who are happy to share in cooking and housework are particularly welcome.
We want your stay to be exciting and educational and are very happy to take the time to share any skills we have and for you to pursue your particular interests.
Nick is a keen artist and specialises in printmaking and sculpture. Arana has studied architecture, ecology and permaculture. We are both passionate about sustainability, creativity, good food and living a rich, responsible, joy-filled life
We like to balance work with play and are outdoor recreation enthusiasts. We have both worked as guides and rangers in the nearby Cradle Mountain - Lake St Claire National Park and are happy to take you on adventures exploring the local area. We have white water kayaks, sea kayaks, bikes and bushwalking equipment which you may be able to borrow.
We typically work in the mornings from 9am until 1pm, leaving the afternoon free. In summer we swim in Lake Cethana every afternoon.
Meals are vegetarian with an emphasis on wholefoods and local and organic ingredients. Accommodation is in bedrooms in the house or in a custom-built light-earth guest room about 5 minutes walk from our house.
Happy to organise pick up from Devonport, Launceston and sometimes Hobart. We have no wifi and only Telstra phone reception but we're happy to make a hotspot with our phones if internet is needed.
Individuals, couples and families welcome.
No smoking in the house.
