We are a Holisiticaly Managed Permaculture farm inland of Rainbow Beach. We are using the Keyline Scale of Permanence to develop infrastructure and tree systems on the farm. The existing Macadamia orchard is in the process of being replanted and converted to organic production. We keep goats in a holistic grazing system, cell grazing them across the property to manage the orchard and improve pastures. We are approaching a `closed loop` farming system, recycling most wastes on farm, harvesting our own mulches, making composts and brewing compost teas. We minimise the amount of external inputs needed to create fertility. Currently help is needed with orchard work, tree planting, beekeeping, seed raising, vegetable harvesting and building. Work is based on your interests and experience. Dam for swimming. Accom for 5 in 2 caravans. Some shared meals and food provided for you to prepare your own meals. Mixed diet, vegetarian/vegan catered for. Minimum stay 2 weeks, longer stays preferred. Close to Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island. Can pickup from Gympie bus/train if needed.
