After all the rain, we would love some help to weed while the soil is soft and to mulch.

Enjoy our quiet, friendly neighbourhood while lending a hand as we settle into our new home and establish an abundant food garden.
We welcome 1-2 people for 1 week.
Help 4 hours per day for 5 days per week and 2 days to explore and enjoy by yourself. Help is mostly outdoors including soil preparations and garden set-up, planting and maintenance, weed eradication, or house maintenance and cleaning should the weather or temperature be unsuited to outdoor endeavours. In summer, when the weather is hot, it is preferable to work for a couple of hours in the very early morning and then again in the late afternoon when the shade comes over.

Initiative, readiness to fit in and watchfulness for ways to contribute and be useful without close supervision is highly valued.
You will be clean, neat and careful with our home.
Thoughtfulness and respect are very important.
Non-smokers only.

Accommodation is a self-contained bedsit including kitchen and en-suite.
Meals: Lunch and dinner provided. Breakfast ingredients provided for you to prepare.
Transport: We are in a quiet, semi-rural area; centrally located on the Sunshine Coast; 4 km from Nambour Bus and Rail Stations, shops and services; Sunshine Coast beaches - 25mins; hinterland villages and National Parks - 25mins; Noosa - 40mins; Caloundra - 30mins.
Your own car would be very handy to allow you to explore and make the most of your stay.
You will be included and welcome.

We have unlimited, but slowish, wifi.

We are a retired couple. I (Pauline, retired teacher) keep busy with gardening, music, swimming, yoga, dance. I have a special interest in cooking and have made a variety of solar cooker designs. Carl (retired school psychologist) enjoys reading, wine and food. Carl keeps us in sourdough bread and sometimes fresh brioche for breakfast. We are both early rises and early to bed.
Our home has an acre of partly native vegetation with a growing food garden.
