This is a family orientated place and we love working with our beautiful children who have now become adults. Our abundant gardens, creative features, community engaging events have become quite popular with our volunteers. We are keen to develop what we have and are able to do that by hosting others to learn new skills and share your knowledge and skills.
The work with us if quite diverse and changes each day. We are centrally located in Orange, Central West NSW which has a population of 40,000. Not to mention the 128,00 people who use Orange as a base for services. There is plenty to do here, experience and lots to learn.
We do require people to stay at our Cargo property to assist with the developing our Eco Permaculture Educational center. Country life and camping.
We have two caravans which we are in the process of being renovated so always keen to hear from people who have carpentry, building, electrical or plumbing skills.
Our ultimate goal is to provide a sustainable environment through fun activities, teaching and building.
We can provide many new skills and have accommodation and meals available for our workers.
