A helping opportunity in March has come up!

General help required starting from the 5th March.

Ideally we are looking for a couple or two friends who are happy to share a bed, but we will also welcome an individual if they are the right fit.

Helpers are needed - 4 hours per day, with 2 days free for each 5 days worked. We are also happy for you to configure your hours to allow extra days off if you'd rather.

We have bought a new house and are renovating it! So we need all kinds of help, from demolition to painting, timber work, general yard work and gardening. Any skills or experience in renovating is an absolute bonus! But if you are keen to learn we can teach you what needs to be done.
This house is a 2min drive from where we will be living, so we will drive you to and from the worksite each day, or you can walk or use your own transport if you’d prefer.
Please be in contact if this is of interest to you.

We start all helpers on a 1 week maximum stay, during this time, longer durations can be discussed or negotiated.


WHERE:

We have a small suburban home 25mins from Melbourne City and airport, and walking distance to public transport, local parks and shops. Close to local markets, farmers markets, and the cinema. We have a sizable backyard with an organic home vegetable garden.

ABOUT US:

We are a young couple, no children, two young dogs. We both work.
We have 2 very friendly and loveable young dogs who spend most of their time inside, absolutely love people and want to be where ever they are. Nelson is a 3year old male and Milly is a 8month old female pup, both a non-allergenic and non-shedding.

Our meals are primarily organic whole food based. Often comprising of fresh organic produce from our garden. We make our own muesli and kefir drinks. We are both chefs who enjoy quality food, so our helpers are always very well fed!

OUR HOME:

Our little home has just finished major renovations (thanks to the help and support of our helpers from HelpX) We have quality free WIFI and excellent mobile/cell phone coverage. You will have a private bedroom with a queen sized bed and your own bathroom. We will cook dinners when we are home, but as we occasionally work nights, you will be required to cook for yourselves when we are working. We will provide food for you to cook with.

Inside areas are non-smoking, smoking outside is fine, using ash tray provided.

THE WORK:

We are having a party in the 3rd of December, so we are seeking help to set up for the party, and help clearing tables and washing dishes on the day.
Jeremy is also into building furniture, and often requires help sanding and staining the wood.
There is occasionally a bit of yard, garden and house work for helpers who are keen to pitch in.
Ideally we are looking for a couple or two friends who are happy to share a bed, but we will also welcome an individual if they are the right fit.

Helpers are needed - 4-5 hours per day, with a day free for each 5 days worked. We are also happy for you to configure your hours to allow extra days off if you'd rather, eg. work 9hours 1 day for 1 extra day off.
