We are a small acreage about 100km northeast of Melbourne, with orchard, olive grove, chickens, sheep, large vegie gardens, two spoilt dogs and a cat.
Would love some help with weeding in the vegie gardens and ornamental gardens, preparing beds for planting and generally keeping the farm and gardens tidy and mulched. I would like more time to put out biodynamic preparations too.We have a hot house where we propagate seedlings to sell and plant in the vegie garden.
Barbara is a great cook and we run a catering business from home. We run a wood fired pizza cafe,which operates from home four nights per week. This is a VERY busy household! There may be some help needed in the kitchen, or front of house but we have paid staff for this, most of the time. For those with the skills, there may be some home maintenance jobs.
We often go down to Melbourne and you are welcome to tag along and visit the Victoria Market, or stay home and explore the beauty of our mountain ranges and rivers. I am happy to pick you up from Lilydale or Healesville if you don't have transport. And we can drive you to some nice bushwalking tracks in the district, or to visit the beautiful Healesville sanctuary. There are many native birds and animals to be seen around here. Public transport is limited but there is a bus to and from Melbourne each day.
We have a comfortable cottage for you to stay in with it's own facilities and wifi or you can stay in a comfy room in the household.
Work times are negotiable, to fit in with our jobs and your skills.
We speak only english (sorry)!
Please email if you think you would be interested in staying with us, we'd love to have you. Cheers
