Hi,

I run a 40 bed retreat venue on 40 acres (16.5 ha) of private farm. It caters primarily for groups of families, but it's building a following amongst retreat groups - think yoga, meditation, women's circles, drama, art, music, etc.

As well as 40 beds, the retreat has a commercial kitchen, large common room with wood fire, outdoor BBQ area with open fire, swimming pool, pool table, commando course, Tipi and gypsy wagon. There are sheep, goats, cattle, horses, lots of chickens and two very sociable Kelpie dogs.

Many groups who stay here self-cater, but some ask for catering. I want to add fresh, organic produce to the offering. I've started a 70-tree orchard and have plans to convert quarter of an acre to permaculture vege garden. But there's only me and my plans are bigger than one 50-something woman can do solo!

I'm looking for skilled or unskilled workers to help me maintain and develop the gardens, build rustic stuff like chicken pens, fix stuff that breaks in the accommodation, and care for the animals.

I'm offering accommodation in a cute, self-contained log cabin for 1-5 people. If I cater, it's 4 hours per day. If you provide your own food it's 3 hours per day.
