We are currently not available until August 2018. If you are keen to stay and help out after that, feel free to message us!
Work times vary greatly.
We expect 25 hours of work per week and are fairly flexible with how these are divided over the days and how many days off you have...
We prefer helpers to stay for 2 weeks, so we can get to know you and spend some quality time together, but will accept shorter stays too :-)
Some of the jobs include:
- building / carpentry tasks
- removing thistles, blackberry and some gorse
- harvesting and processing bamboo for building
- splitting firewood
- planting trees
- fencing / building a chook run
- making compost
- preparing garden beds
- and more...
We love helpers to have a project to work on start to finish during your stay. We have some ideas of what we need but you could come up with your own too!
We can provide accommodation in our caravan or a beautiful spot for your own van. We have access to showers in town and a river to swim and freshen up in is on site.
We provide 3 wholesome vegetarian meals daily. If you need extras or like to snack between meals, please bring your own.
Please note that we are aiming to live free from plastic and waste to landfill. If you must bring rubbish (especially plastic bags) onto our land we ask that you take these with you when you leave. We are happy to take care of recycling (plastics with 1 and 2 recycle numbers), paper and compost.
We are a multicultural vegetarian household, love music and fun, speak English, German and a little Spanish (we like to practice) and have a small organic herbal tea business and food truck we run on the weekends...
We love permaculture, our swimming hole and bonfire evenings.
...and there are soon to be three of us!
We look forward to hearing from you!
