We are looking for someone to stay with us for about a month. We can offer lots of learning about vegetable farming and ask that you are someone who is able to do sometimes hard physical work in sometimes bad weather. See below for details and if interested please send us an email telling us about yourself. Thanks!


We live on a community on top of a beautiful mountain, 70km north east of Melbourne. We are one of about 30 families living on the 600 acres that comprises the community. Most of this land is forest with abundant wildlife such as wombats, wallabies and goannas.

We have an one acre market garden, growing a great diversity of vegetables. Help is always welcome in the garden! Jobs include planting, hoeing, mulching, wedding, making compost, harvest and many other things.

We ask that helpers work for six hours a day, five days a week. On Saturday and Sunday you'll have time off to relax. There is a dam to swim in, a tennis court, pool table, ping pong table and many lovely people to socialise with here.

We will provide comfortable accommodation for you in our studio which is just behind our house. We also provide and cook all your meals which will be shared with us and vegetarian. We have two young boys, aged 3 and 7.

We really enjoy having helpers from around the world stay with us and have made many wonderful friends doing so. Hope to hear from you soon!
