We are located in the idyllic valley of Lorinna; an active, vibrant rural community with a strong cooperative ethos, frequent communal events and working bees, a food co-op, abundant wildlife and wonderfully clean soil, air and water.
We live on a property with several other households with whom we share work and resources and a stand-alone photovoltaic and micro-hydro power system.
We are a family of four with a 7 year old daughter and a 3 year old son whom we homeschool with a natural learning approach.
We`ve recently returned from a five month bicycle trip through Europe (planned around visiting some of the amazing friends we`ve made through Help X) and are keen to further embrace the joys of simplicity and are building a tiny home from reclaimed materials where we can live a more minimalist, outdoor lifestyle. We primarily need help with building and/or playing with the children while we build. Other projects we may be working on include playing in the vegetable garden, planning the permaculture garden/food forest for the new house, gathering firewood, building a chicken house, creating art projects, building a cob outhouse, making compost, finishing work on our shared light earth studio, building a treehouse and natural play area and helping out with projects and events in the wider community.

Visitors who are happy to share in cooking and housework are particularly welcome.

We want your stay to be exciting and educational and are very happy to take the time to share any skills we have and for you to pursue your particular interests.

Nick is a keen artist and specialises in printmaking and sculpture. Arana has studied architecture, ecology and permaculture. We are both passionate about sustainability, creativity, good food and living a vibrant,, responsible, joy-filled life

We like to balance work with play and are outdoor recreation enthusiasts. We have both worked as guides and rangers in the nearby Cradle Mountain - Lake St Claire National Park and are happy to take you on adventures exploring the local area. We have white water kayaks, sea kayaks, mountain bikes and bushwalking equipment which you may be able to borrow.

We typically work in the mornings from 9am until 1pm, leaving the afternoon free. In summer we swim in Lake Cethana every afternoon. When the weather gets cooler we enjoy cosying up and playing cards and board games

Meals are vegetarian with an emphasis on wholefoods and local and organic ingredients.

Accommodation is in rooms in the house.

Happy to organise pick up from Devonport, Launceston and sometimes Hobart. We have no wifi and only Telstra phone reception but we`re happy to make a hotspot with our phones if internet is needed.
Individuals, couples and families welcome.
No smoking inside
