Our family of 3 children, 1 lively Bearded Collie, 2 cats, and several chickens live on 2.5 Acres, of regenerating native bush and grass.

We are working hard to be self sufficient but have some way to go. We generate our own power, harvest water and use worm composting for our septics which seems to work well. The house is new and built to be energy and materials efficient.

Our village is in the heart of a fantastic slice of countryside with beaches, shops, cafe's and every activity you could imagine a short drive away. We are out surfing, dog walking, mountain biking, swimming as often as we can...trying to find a balance between getting on top of the weeds and having fun!

We have a fair bit of work to do on our section. We are slowly working through several landscaping projects including building raised veggie patches, clearing weeds and planting the property with natives and fruit trees.

The kinds of things we would love help with include
- landscaping, including design, preparation (weeding!), planting and mulching
- clearing bramble to restore the stream and planting with natives
- building a flying fox over the valley?!?

But just mucking in, having some fun, great food and a few beers at the end of the day would be great! Surf board available for use...
