I live in a house in an intentional community near Fremantle within walking distance from famous South Beach. I require around 3-5 hours of help per day with general household duties, and gardening. Please keep in mind that this is HELP-x, not Free-Holiday-x. I do expect you to work as hard as any other 'real' job, and to log your hours and achievements so that we are clear, and you can enjoy your time off.

This is an award-winning, intentional co-housing community of around two dozen people.
We live in 12 architect designed houses a 15 minute bike ride from the world famous 'Cappuccino Strip' in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Each house is fully self-contained and residents share the common facilities.
In the Common House we have a kitchen & dining area, an office, a meeting room, a small guest room, and a laundry.

The community cooks and shares meals two times a week during the Australian school terms (these meals are $6 each and you will need to book the day before), and the first Friday of the month all year round (you will need to bring a dish of food if you want to join in the fist friday open house meal), often eating round the communal fire.

We benefit from the practice of: consensus decision making; inclusiveness; fully using the wisdom of the group; the principles of co-operation; non-violence; environmental responsibility and sustainability; social justice; tenant participation; and last, but by no means least - learning to love.

You will share a room with at least one other help-x'er, and will usually have bedding and linen provided but please also bring a sleeping bag as if I am short of linen Airbnb guests get first priority. You are provided with basic meals which will be salad sandwiches, or rice, dahl, and vegetable curry. If you want variety in your diet then you can shop and cook for yourself in the kitchen.

You may use the wifi however please be considerate of other people in the house and don't download entire seasons of shows, or all the movies you like and take up all the bandwidth and slow it down for everyone.
