We are a small but expanding organic permaculture market garden and orchard. Our farm lies between two world heritage listed national parks in the Gold Coast hinterland. There are lovely swimming holes on the property with bushwalking trails close by. Gold Coast beaches are 50 minutes away, with Brisbane and Byron Bay 90 minutes away. We are about 30 minutes from trains, buses and trams and we head off to town there weekly.

We grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables so the work which needs to be done involves planting, picking, packing, weeding, looking after the chickens, bed preparation, mulching, general farm work , mowing, composting and brewing and applying compost teas.

Accommodation is provided in a 4 bedroom bunkhouse with separate kitchen and common room, laundry and bathroom, free WiFi.

We are vegetarian (the cattle we have are only used for lawnmowing and fertiliser production) and would prefer helpers who are non-smoking. We grow most of our own food and are very keen to help anyone who's interested to learn more about sustainable farming and increasing bio-diversity.

If mutually agreeable, we would like helpers to stay for at least one month, with the possibility of staying for longer.
