We are a friendly family of four: two adults (Mum, Dad) and two children (Ethan, nine years old and Rafaela, three years old). My husband is an academic, and I am a housewife and gardener teacher. We live in West Footscray, about a five minute walk from Tottenham train station on the Watergardens line. This train stop is about a twenty minute ride from the CBD.

We have a large Permaculture organic garden and a dog. We have hosted many people in the past, and enjoy meeting new people. Help in exchange for (mainly vegetarian but also meat based) meals and board in our comfortable, renovated bungalow. Tasks include: housework, food preparation, gardening, home maintenance and DIY tasks.

Breakfast and lunch are self-service, with a shared evening meal. Helpers have their own bungalow, plus the all important wifi!

We try to run an eco-conscious home, so helpers who are interested in this kind of lifestyle tend to be a good fit. We cook and eat primarily organic food, and you will learn how to manage chickens and grow veggies.
