We are a Holisiticaly Managed 15 acre Permaculture farm 20min east of Gympie at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast. We are using the Keyline Scale of Permanence to develop infrastructure and tree systems on the farm. The existing Macadamia orchard is in the process of being replanted and converted to organic production. We keep goats in a holistic grazing system, moving them daily through the property to manage the orchard and improve pastures. We are approaching a 'closed loop' farming system, recycling most wastes on farm, harvesting our own mulches, making composts and brewing compost teas. We minimise the amount of external inputs needed to create fertility. Currently help is needed with orchard work, tree planting, beekeeping, vegetable harvesting & mulching. Work is based on your interests and experience, and we try and frame jobs as a learning experience, showing how each component fits into the whole farm plan. We also have many building projects on the go where I'm happy to share skills (cob/straw-bale/timber/wood fired ovens). Dam for swimming. Accom for 2 in caravan, more room for campers. Some shared meals and food provided for you to prepare your own meals. Mixed diet, vegetarians catered for. Minimum stay 2 weeks, longer stays preferred. Close to Rainbow Beach & Fraser Island. Can p/u from Gympie bus/train if needed. PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY via email or phone: mobile: 0404 364 811. Thanks
