I run a Hydroponic farm situated in the foothills of Mount Tamborine on the Gold Coast. I specialise in growing Fancy Lettuce and a variety of culinary herbs. The farm is surrounded by farmland and bush, yet is only a 20 minute drive to the beach at Surfers Paradise.

A typical day on the farm begins with picking the herbs and lettuce to fill customer orders. The orders are delivered fresh daily. Following the deliveries are other tasks such as cleaning the growing benches and planting out the seedlings. In addition to the customer orders, on the weekends, we sell our produce at 'Farmer's Markets' where people come to buy quality, fresh produce.

As most of the growing benches are outdoors the work environment is pleasant, with plenty of fresh air and sunshine.

I have one dog that 'helps out' around the farm and a few of the neighbours dogs frequently come to visit.

Smokers are ok as I am a smoker

I offer modern, clean accommodation, food and limited internet use in exchange for flexible working hours. I am very busy and not much of a chef so I will keep the fridge well stocked with food so you can prepare your own meals.

I would prefer helpers to stay at least 2 weeks.
