A peaceful and magnificent botanical garden in the foothills of Mount Wellington. Only 11 minutes by car from the centre of Hobart, 5 minutes walk to bus stop and to the bush walking tracks of Mount Wellington. Many helpers have climbed to the top and back, this is your challenge!! I have orchard/vegetable garden/greenhouse and chicken runs using permaculture and organic principals. We are: me, Sarah, 2 children (11 and 13) , 3 rabbits and 7chickens. Potential jobs are gardening, maintenance, building, fencing, weeding, watering, feeding animals, bonfires (in Autumn/winter), hedge trimming, painting, cleaning, housework. Also we have many dry stone walls that would love some repair work. I aim to fit your skills with our jobs so together we can find a comfortable fit for all! We offer you food and accommodation for 4-5 hours of help per day. Breakfast and Lunch are generally self prepared with ingedients provided and evening meals at around 6pm are often shared as a family. We invite full participation with food preparation for shared meals and cleaning up after meals. We eat a wide range of food and aim for locally or home grown food. I am studying Nutritional Medicine and work in a herbal apothecary. Non-Smokers only please. Currently looking for mature helpers to get stuck into some serious garden maintenance. Thursday to Monday is generally the best time for helpers.. longer term helping possible if all works well.
