We have availability now

We live in a beautiful old farmhouse built on 3 acres of rich red volcanic soil.
We are a family of 4 with 2 young children creating an intensive food production farm that uses organic farming practices aimed at supplying the best quality food for the local community.
Work incl. planting seeds, transplanting seedlings, garden bed preparation, compost making, picking veg, preparing lettuce mixes, food preservation/pickling gherkins, weeding, digging, cooking etc.

Accom is for two in a guest room adjoining our house, with wifi, dvd, comfortable beds. Meals are cooked by family and we generally all eat together. We encourage helpxers to cook at least one meal(we love helpxers who can cook) If the weather is good we often have a BBQ. Mixed diet, vegetarians catered for.
You can easily get here via train from Southern Cross Station in Melbourne.
On days off we can drive you into Daylesford(our nearest big town) where you can spend a day exploring.

Artists! Painters, sculptors, carvers, graffiti artists, etc, we are open to new installations, murals.............

Building skills always required with many projects on the go.

Kangaroos, I have the 5 minute challenge. Guaranteed to show you kangaroos in the wild within 5 minutes of leaving the house.
