I have a spacious house surrounded by thriving food gardens, animal enclosures and small paddocks. Animals include a pony,geese, turkeys, ducks, ducklings and chickens. In the surrounding bushland there is wildlife in abundance - kangaroos, red-tailed black cockatoos, bandicoots etc.

You can learn worm farming, composting, mulching etc and gain an understanding of how to develop productive eco-systems including aquaculture (pond)food gardens, native gardens, bush tucker gardens and so on.

In exchange for 5 hours a day/5 days a week help I am happy to pass on my knowledge and skills in sustainability and environmentally friendly living as well as organic gardening and farming (I have won several state awards for my community environmental education). I will also help you with English as I am a retired literacy teacher.

1. As I have chemical sensitivities it is strictly non-smokers only.

2.Helpers must be prepared to not use aerosol sprays and to avoid the use of artificial fragrances.

3. Helpers need to have an Australian mobile phone (preferably Telstra) so that I can contact you when either of us are out and about, especially if you are bush walking. This is mainly for your security and safety, rather than just for my convenience and reduced costs. Please do not apply if you are not prepared to have an Australian mobile.

I am looking forward to meeting more Help X's. I have been sharing my home and property with Wwoofer's and Help X's for over 14 years and I really enjoy exchanging culture, ideas and skills. From my reviews you can see that we all benefit from the time we have together.

Cheers Caralyn
