We live on a small suburban block 100 metres from the yarra river in warburton. Its a beautiful location in a country town. There are many tourist attractions such as the warburton rail trail, several walks, mount donna buang, lala falls.
We are trying to be as sustainable as we can and with work and 2 children it all gets a bit crazy sometimes! We would really like to offer our small spare room in exchange for some help!
Things we would love help with:
*growing our food
*improving our soil quality
*building our green house
*building our tree house
*putting in a small pond
*putting in water tanks
*some babysitting help or housework help would be great if you don't feel comfortable with getting your hands to dirty.
Maximum stay 2 weeks full time.
Although I have a friend that lives 15 mins away that is needing help with keeping her house…we were hoping to share the woofer from one house to another. we would be willing to drive you from house to house or there is a local bus that is easy to take. We both have young babies and are in need of someone who would just help us inside cleaning..although there may be some outdoor jobs too. In this situation a long term stay may be available.
We would like a 6hr a day contribution. h
this will include you accommodation and meals. We eat very simple food and may need you to help us to cook them!
There is a small supermarket a walk away form our house but the large woolworths in yarra junction is cheaper and a 15 minute- these may come in handy if you have some food preferences that we don't eat-although we would love you to join us in eating simple healthy organic foods.
We will not allow smoking or drug use at all on our property because w shave babies and young children.
We are a young, down to earth family who really care about our footprint on the earth, what we eat and where it comes from. We are easy to get along with and are passionate about creating our home into a beautiful space. Hoping to meet you soon!
