I have a half share in a 32 acres near Karridale and Margaret River. Whilst I have owned the property since 1977 I have not lived here for the past 13 years and have been back only a matter of months.

Consequently there are a lot of repairs and building projects pending, as well tidying up in general.
Currently I have a veggie garden, an ornamental garden and an orchard that I have almost rehabilitated and which I intend to expand by planting more fruiting trees.

Ideally I would like people who are happy to learn and try anything. People with building skills/ experience and or trade skills would be most welcome.

The volunteer accommondation is a caravan about 50 metres from the cottage. This will ostensibly be for sleeping and private time. The caravan is simple but clean and comfortable. It would be perfect for one and cosy for a couple or 2 people prepared to share the double bed.
There will also be full access to the cottage and freestanding/ separate kitchen. All meals will be provided and predominantly organic. Whilst I eat meat, vegetarian options are always available ( I was a vego for 35 yrs). As I have travelled and lived overseas extensively food options are very multicultural - I have also been a chef and still enjoy cooking for people.

All in all if you are happy to tackle a variety of projects, be creative and resourceful I have a range of work options. I would prefer extended stays with a minimum of 4 days at 4/5hours per day.

The property is a bush block on the edge of a state forest. There are great bush walks and the Blackwood River is 2kms away. There is lot to see and experience in the region. Great beaches are 20 minutes away. There are wineries close by and Margaret River, Augusta and Nanup are easily accessible.

Having your own transport would be an asset but not necessarily an imperative.

Please do not hesitate to contact if you have any queries or questions. Enshala
