I have a property which is 166 acres on undulating land and I need help to convert an old cabin in August/September 2017 into something that can be lived in. It will need plumbing, painting and recarpeting as well as setting up water tanks and solar power as the property is off-grid.

Besides that, I also need helpers who enjoy planting fruit trees and can help me fix the soil by spreading straw and horse manure on some areas of the property. There's so much to do so it all depends on what your skills and interests are.

Where will you be living?

You will be staying in a beautiful house on half an acre of land in Violet Town which is 20 kms away from the property.

Violet Town is home to one of the most famous monthly farmer's markets and is close to Shepparton, Euroa and Benalla and only 60 kms from Wangaratta. It is about 2.5 hours from Melbourne and there is a train service that will take you to Melbourne or Sydney. This is the area that Ned Kelly and his friends travelled in and terrorised the local inhabitants.

I would like helpers who can stay for at least 2 weeks so that we can get a lot done in the time you are here.

All mod cons, food and unlimited internet will make your stay very comfortable. I'm vegetarian and a non-smoker but don't mind if you aren't.

In return I'd like about 18 hours of help a week. We can sort out how you want to do those hours so that it suits your travel plans. On your days off, I'm happy to show you around to some of the nearby areas that might interest you.
