My name is Sam Mattille, I am over 70 years old single and would like your help.
SORRY I CAN NOT SIGN YOUR 2ND YEAR VISA FORM.
My Farm is OPEN from 1st of December till the end of April. I'm in Glenlyon near Daylesford in Victoria. About 100 KM north west from Melbourne.
Solar Electricity and generator.
Our motto will be "CARE, SHARE and RESPECT" to all living things on the Farm and each other.
For short notice bookings ring me (2 Days before), ring between 8.00 am to 9.00 am or 8.00 pm - 9.00 pm.
Please leave a message, speak slowly and clearly and I will call you back the same day.
Stay 1 week or longer if you can, by mutual agreement.
Should be able to work independent, have a happy and friendly nature. 'Artists welcome'. You must have travel Insurance.
WORK THIS MONTH: In Summer , light Farm work, gardening, fire prevention and help in the Kitchen or some painting if you can. We stop work when it gets to hot.
Yes you may get dirty, but I have some spare cloths and gloves for you.
We will work about 4 hours per day, pending on the project and the weather.
One Day off, after 6 days of work, usually Sunday. (We can go sight seeing, Sunday Market, Volcano, Mineral Springs)
I am still building my House/Healing Center. The Healing Center will be for the use of Shiatsu Massage, Yoga, Thai Chi, Meditation, Detox and more. Mostly outside on nice days.
You can also learn how to make Herb teas. Play the Didgeridoo and Drum for Healing.
I have no domestic Farm Animals or House Pets as my Property is dedicated for "LAND FOR WILDLIFE", so you will see and hear a lot of wildlife. Mostly Kangaroos and Birds.
ARE YOU READY FOR THIS CHALLENGE OF NATURE?
IF YES, I WELCOME YOU WITH OPEN ARMS.
HOW TO GET HERE:
Book your ticket from Melbourne 'Southern Cross Station' to Daylesford. All up about 2 hours by Train and Bus.(Train from Melbourne to Woodend, then Bus from Woodend to Daylesford. All on one Ticket.
There is a very limited Bus service, so make sure you check the connection times first.
I shall pick you up from the Daylesford Bus stop. (There is only one Bus stop). Or I can pick you up from the Kyneton Railway station, if there is no connecting Bus from Woodend. That will make it easier for you.
In Caravan or House/loft.
You may need a Sleeping Bag as it can get cold at night anytime.
Compost Toilets (two) outside. Solar Hot Water Showers (two) outside. In cooler weather we go to a Caravan park to have a hot shower.
We can make music, with Didgeridoo, Guitar and Drums, or play Cards, learn a bit more English. Other languages German.
Are shared and of a mixed nature, vegetarians welcome. I'm happy to learn some cooking from you or teach you some basic healthy dishes.
Very quiet country living.
Be as natural as you like, (no perfumes etc. needed), thank you. I'm allergic to unnatural smells.
You can create your own space, do some artistic painting or we can drive to Daylesford for Shopping.
Swimming and kayaking in the Dams in summer.
Rollies OK. Inside only (due to Fire restrictions), No Pets, please. Children by arrangement only.(As I have 4 deep Dams)
Arriving Monday morning is best for me, so take the early Train, you can have a sleep when you get here. Thank you.
Looking forward to meet you soon.
