We are looking for two helpers for March.

We are a family of four people, one dog, a two horses, six goats, several chickens, and we live in The Patch on a beautiful small orgainic permaculture farm, complete with rainforest gullies, wallabies, wombats, and plenty of birdlife.
Located one hour from Melbourne in the Dandenong Ranges, is conveniently close to public transport, with the bus stop only a one minute walk from our house. The buses run regularly, and it is easy to visit the surrounding towns, National park, and take day trips to Melbourne. Our local friendly cafe has wonderful cakes and coffee, and is also only a short walk from the house. The local heated swimming pool is also close by.

We need help setting up our organic market Garden mainly weeding and planting vegetables and garlic. There is also general farm work, fencing, gardening, painting and building projects for those who have carpentry skills.
Accommodation is provided in our family home, two single beds, or a double in your own comfortable room, with a shared family bathroom.
We have mostly a vegetarian diet and love cooking really good food, and enjoy good conversation.
We love having guests staying with us,sharing our culture,and learning about yours.
You must be mature,a motivated worker, have references, love animals, not mind getting dirty, and be able to fit in well with our young busy family. It is expected that you also help with some daily chores around dinner time for example. We have wifi, which you are welcome to use in your own room, but the rest of the house is media free.
No smokers please.
