VACANCY from MAY 4th 2019.

Hello HelpX travellers. (Couple, 1 - 2 friends)

We are a busy working family of Mum, Dad and 13 year old with various animals. We are looking for a mature couple or friends to join us on our beautiful farm.

We are situated about 45 mins west of Brisbane CBD, on 88 acres in Cedar Creek, about 15 mins from the nearest shops in Samford. Our property in nestled in a small valley of tress, creeks, birds, butterflies, creeks with a peaceful atmosphere and cool tranquil breezes.

We are looking for Mature persons with prior experience in organic farming / gardens / landscape ideas / fixing fences and getting our farm ready to sell sadly. We would ask for help for 4 hours a day in return for free accomodation in a cosy neat Caravan and self contained Shed with free Wifi and limited download (No Movie downloads). We would appreciate help with cooking too as we both have long days half the week.

All jobs currently involve outdoor weeding and whipper snipping. We have finished a busy period of big jobs so the task now are rather easy. We are getting ready to sell our farm so attention to detail is important. There maybe an opportunity for cash in hand type work - this will depend on work availability and skill set and other logistics.

ACCOMODATION - 100 metres from our home in a Neat, tidy self contained cute Caravan in a sheltered Shed as big as a house itself and complete with toilet / shower / basic cooking facilities (Microwave, toasted sandwich maker, small oven).

MEALS - We supply the food . You cook for yourself in our self contained shed. We are happy to consider reasonable dietary requests. We would enjoy sharing some meals from time to time.

ENGLISH - Must be able to speak reasonable English.

TRANSPORT - Having your own Car is Ideal but not essential. We can collect from the Ferny Grove Train Station when we arrange with you a suitable time to collect.

If you arrive in Brisbane by train you can catch a train to the City then to ferny Grove Station. We would e-mail or text details.

US - We are NON - SMOKERS and family type people. I work as a Nurse and my husband works as a plant technician. Our 13 year old is full of creative ideas, a love of animals, in particular her horse, music, art and cooking. We are inclusive and non judgemental and love meeting new people.

Our farms suits persons who can work independently; are interested in environmental, land and tree care; who learn quickly; who love nature, birds and exploring the bush. Values important to us are being kind, tolerant of all people, an enjoyment of different cultures and travelling and being flexible with an positive attitude to learn and help each other!!

If you want to make an enquiry please send some info about your self, your skills and prior work experience and any referees thanks.

TO START WITH we would offer a trial of 3 days to see how we all work together before confirming to a 2 - 4 week stay.

Love to hear from you soon.

Col and Jenny
