We have a large organic vegetable garden that we try to grow most of our vegetables in (although at different times of the year there is little to pick) and a large house block with many flowers and fruit trees. From our deck there is a wonderful view of Mt. Wellington. It's a great place for a cup of tea or glass of wine!

We are a couple in our 60's who both work mostly from home (a potter/pottery teacher and a furniture restorer/environmental consultant). Helpers may get to help at Salamanca Market with Jude's pottery stall and in the pottery studio. You might get to make something for yourself as well as learning some pottery techniques.

Mostly we ask helpers to weed the garden, or do other gardening chores. We find the garden a never ending job! No matter what we do there are always weeds!! We prefer helpers who don't mind getting their hands dirty.

Thanks to many wonderful helpers who have stayed with us we have created brick paths in the garden. There is a Chinese section in the vegetable garden, and several French sections near the front door, and behind the studio.In the path building sessions we are always on hand as well. We are very fortunate to have had several helpers with path building experience.

We are also doing some renovating, so if you enjoy painting contact us. One of our wonderful French helpers proved to be quite a painter!!

We lead busy, interesting lives.

Have a look at our websites : www.judemaisch.com.au
www.emfacts.com

We have a large old house,and the room where our helpers stay is large and comfortable with a queen size bed. Wi Fi is available. We usually eat together and you will get to enjoy wonderful meals!
We live 2 kms from Hobart city, with a bus stop outside and we are very close to shops. There are bike tracks nearby and we have bikes and helmets you can borrow.


We prefer helpers who have had help-x experience, and who don't mind a bit of mess within wonderful surroundings. We expect an average of 5 or 6 four hour work sessions, but you won't need to spend any money on food when you are with us, and you will be very comfortable. So you don't have to work every day, and we encourage you to get out and about exploring beautiful Hobart with all it has to offer (Salamanca Market, MONA, beaches, walks, the museum and Mt Wellington and more).

Couples are preferable, but an interesting energetic single is always welcome.



(No smoking, nuts or perfumes please!!)
