I'm Kate, I live 20 min walk from the centre of Hobart. "Petty st" is the name of our big beautiful family, which embraces all the friends who came by and lived in the Petty st house over the years. The first wwoofer/helper who came here arrived in 98'. Since then part of our big world wide family here is already more than 300 people. Each one added a great energy and value to the house.
We live communally in the city and share the garden with our two cats, and the chooks. The house is big and comfortable, visitors and friends are always passing by. Outside of the house there is a big sunny garden, with fruit trees and organic vegetables.
My main focus is on sustainability. My passion in life is natural dyeing of clothes and fabrics, designing and deconstructing garments. Once a week, on Saturday, I set up my Salamanca market stall in Hobart - a market for local and artisan products, food and clothes. At the stall I sell my designs, recycled clothes, clothes I dye, clothes I recreated from used fabrics. Saturday is our favourite day of the week and the most important day for outside help.
Thus people with sewing skills and interest in creative pursuits are most welcome. We have lots of projects that are going on at the moment, and there is a place for your own creativity. We would love to have your creative ideas and help.
Stay and work are negotiated as fair exchange between equals. We create our lives around the principals of love, generosity, fun and responsibility.
Activities included revolve around the house, dyeing, sewing and gardening. There is a wide variety of changing activities. Its all depends on what you are good at, what has to be done, and what you would love to do.
We eat simple, healthy, largely vego food. People who like cooking are more than welcome to express themselves in our nice cozy kitchen which has a view on West Hobart and the ocean.
Welcome left-leaning workers, artists and meditators.
GLBTIQ- friendly.
