Helpers needed from now on as butterfly season hots up. Work among the caterpillars and chrysalis's and help maintain a good population to release
Family oriented lifestyle block close to scenic sites, shops & beaches. We are retired Salvation Army Officers and have four generations living on the property and accommodation is in the main house with us. Use of washing machine and wifi.
We believe we have a unique lifestyle experience in that we raise Monarch Butterflies from Spring until Autumn. We have growing vege gardens and orchards that we are establishing by growing with woodchip/mulch for healthy growing. We have sheep and chickens and two baby calves.
There is general gardening work available year round as well as help in the butterfly houses.And of course there is always general housework.
We are a nonsmoking/drug free property.
It would be necessary to have own transport or car license as we are 4 kms from nearest town Richmond. Mostly we would expect work in the morning at least 3-4 hrs weather permitting and you are free to relax, sightsee etc after that. No work Sunday. We are flexible
The butterfly season will be on us soon and the shadehouses are being made ready Continuing gardening and maintenance is ongoing. We have added extra chooks so have one set real free range in a paddock which can make life interesting. We are open for helpx folk to plan to come join us any time from now as the caterpillars are starting to hatch and for a great family lifestyle experience.
