We run an Eco-Arts Retreat in a beautiful, peaceful part of the Huon Valley, Tasmania.

Alex and Elisse are looking for one committed, hard working helper or a couple for the period of one week. In return for 5 hours contribution per week day, we offer you extremely comfortable, warm accommodation, home cooked dinners, and your own mini retreat at Dreamfarm.

We are seeking work both inside the building and out in the fields. One of us has an injury at the moment, and would appreciate the assistance.
Outdoor tasks include working with newly planted seedlings (preparing guards and distributing mulch), weeding, and animal care (chickens). Indoor tasks primarily involve cleaning. Depending on your skills we may also include some indoor painting or basic outdoor construction (for the animals). We will go with the flow based on the weather - outdoor when the sun is shining and inside when it's wet.

The property is 26 acres, and is a 15 minute drive from Huonville. There is a large European chalet in which you will be housed. We are not a producing farm - our focus is currently on people and creativity - however we have a small vegetable and herb garden and some fruit trees. There is a flowing creek with swimming holes, native bush to explore and many walks in the area. We have a fun loving, energetic dog (you need to be compatible with dogs). There is NO mobile phone reception here and limited internet. Our small community gathers once a week for a potluck dinner.

If you do not have your own car then we can pick you up and drop you off from Huonville.

*It is a requirement that we meet anyone before accepting them as helpX workers*
The meeting can take place in Huonville or Hobart before the proposed stay at Dreamfarm.
We take requests by EMAIL only.
Please tell us about yourself, why you would like to come to Dreamfarm and what you can contribute.

We look forward to hearing from you.
