Our place has a river boundary on the Roding River in Aniseed Valley about 15 min drive from Richmond. We live in a new, sunny home built by Ben who is a self-employed Builder. We have a mix of very steep land and gentle rolling hills with the area around the house basically flat. We have a small heritage apple orchard of around 80 trees, including a few cider varieties for Merophy to continue her passion of Cidermaking. There is plenty of work around the property as we have just welcomed into world our first child who is of course very time consuming! We maintain a fairly large vegetable garden and have various other plantings around the house. We are interested in permaculture principles and plan to implement them as much as possible. We require help establishing our garden and encouraging native and other plantings. There is a fair amount of weeding, stacking firewood, apple tree pruning/thinning (depending on the season), track building and potentially planting. Merophy is generally at home and will join helpers with work from time to time in and around caring for our little one. We like the idea of 4 hours a day in exchange for food and accommodation but we can flexible. Internet is available. We require helpers to have their own transport as we are not on a bus route and the nearest shops are 15 min drive away. We are a smoke-free home.
