Our property is on the edge of the village of Cygnet. It is a walk of about ten minutes into the centre from our property. There are two buses daily that go into Hobart from Cygnet. Cygnet is a lovely village with some interesting shops including a number of cafés, a great bakery and two pubs. It is quite an arty little place with a great little market every other Sunday. Laurie works in Hobart during the week as a computer professional and is a keen cyclist. I am retired from teaching and I now do a little bit of work as a civil celebrant. I also do some voluntary work with a a circular economy group, meals on wheels and help organise the local folk festival. I also row, garden and sing. We have recently done extensive renovations to the house and it is now very comfortable. The Helpx accommodation consists of a double bedroom with an ensuite. Our little farm is very beautiful but needs lots of work in the garden particularly and around the property generally. We are learning about permaculture and are hoping to try and introduce some permaculture principles into our property There are horses, donkeys,chickens, three sheep and we have two lovely, friendly dogs called Ella and Daisy on the farm. We are in the process of setting up a vegetable garden so there's plenty to do outside. We really need people who are happy to do quite physical work outside. We have three grown up children who all live in Hobart but who come down to visit us. Andrew(30), Thom (28) and Molly (23).
We are vegetarians and non smokers. We have had a number of HelpXers come and stay with us and we loved having them as part of our family.We prefer to have two people together.
