I am a fervent believer that we must live more sustainably and that we cannot keep plundering and degrading our planet.
I aim to set out and to demonstrate (along with many others) just how affordable and rewarding it can be.
To this end I'm planning:
to plant a garden with about 200 Australian - native trees & shrubs - watch the trees reclaim the land and improve drainage.
build a small chicken run
raise organic food in both raised and plain garden beds.

Composting - I also draw fruit & vegetable scraps from some local restaurants - also recycle egg shells
repair fencing around the house grounds to make it stock proof
worm farm & recycle waste
plus other chores

One particular area of work & interest is to have some assistance with building a database of jobs and places to stay for working holiday makers would be greatly appreciated.

Assistance from guests for a few hours per day - depending upon the project - would be greatly appreciated - whilst they have time to explore the area - meals and accommodation provided
Length of stay can be discussed from a couple of days to a few weeks.

Close to Lismore - Nimbin - Byron Bay and Ballina plus other places.

Just a little note:
Sometimes people have special dietary needs. If you do then it's helpful if you either post them in your profile details or let your host know in advance. My guests eat what I eat so if you're a fussy eater I suggest you bring your own. My food is good plain healthy cooking.
Also I expect a reasonable standard of personal hygiene - I've had an odd one or two who didn't shower.
