Peaceful secluded rural property in the mountains of the beautiful scenic Clarence Valley, Northern NSW. A couple of hours south west of Byron Bay, 1 hour from Grafton, 1.5 hours from Coffs Harbour.

In the process of building a dwelling from shipping containers and a swag of salvaged materials. Enjoy persons willing to participate in helping with whatever is going on at the time.

Flexible arrangements. Couples or one or two singles welcome. Satellite connection to internet unavailable at the moment. BYO laptop. No phone reception. Separate sleeping accommodation is on a 38 ft yacht, or in a family sized tent. No TV. Outside bathroom, and composting bush toilet..
No restrictions really, prefer non smokers. I am very approachable, just ask the questions if you are unsure of anything..
Physical outdoor types encouraged. Anyone with building skills, or permaculture knowledge would be a bonus. You must like living in the bush, miles away from shops and pubs, and appreciate the simple life. I do not have hot running water. I have a large tank supplying lovely drinking water, and a huge dam for fishing and swimming. I am not connected to the grid for power but have a generator for operating power tools and a very small solar system for other power requirements like running a laptop or charging batteries...
4 hours work daily, would be required, for all food and lodgings.

Projects vary according to the time of year and weather conditions. Jobs could include weed pulling (no chemical spraying), Tractor/slasher work, clearing lantana, tree planting, mulching, general gardening and brush cutting. Kitchen chores, collecting wood and lighting the earth oven will be another daily job. Project building work will be ongoing, including landscaping, the building of a composting toilet, and bathhouse, including a greywater system etc.
I am establishing fruit trees, and a vegetable garden. Good food is the order of the day...Fresh from the veggie patch, according to the seasons.

I have bees hives and beautiful natural honey, and require help with robbing the hives on occasion.
I have totally enjoyed the company and help of those helpx that have ventured out to the block, and loved the cultural exchange.
