The property is a free standing house in a charming hills village in the hills outside Perth. The grounds are two thirds of an acre with some fruit trees but the grounds are an old 1920s property which is undergoing restoration as a typical hills property; reestablishing vegetable garden, restoring the old fruit trees and most importantly removing the invasive weeds that have colonized the hillside block of land.
From autumn through to late spring this district is a very popular tourist location due to the wild flowers that bloom in the extensive bush surroundings. Western Australia has the greatest range of wildflowers any where in the world!
If you are interested in gardening and horticulture from autumn through to spring householders in this area need considerable help in their gardens. The blocks of land are as large as mine so they need constant maintenance. Earlier HelpX visitors have obtained paid work in this way.
The accommodation on offer is an upstairs bedroom/s with a semi separate bathroom/laundry. The offer is for meals to be provided in exchange for one 8 hour day of work and one day free OR four hours per day. There is regular public transport into the nearby city of Midland as well as to the city of Perth 25 km away.
I make sure that Helpers are well fed and get nutritious meals. I also do my best to make sure that you have good recreation opportunities. I'm afraid that this is a non-smoking household.
