Very comfortable farm. I live in a roomy modern farmhouse.1 hour to melbourne[ by car or train ], separate warm bedroom, sep bathroom.
I work hard at conservation and being SUSTAINABLE.... we have our own independent water supply, and produce our own electricity ( solar panels- 4.5kw - and solar water ; but we are GRID CONNECTED to power also.)
In fact , I am quietly passionate about being sustainable ,and I try to leave a ' small footprint'.
Central heating plus some wood fires , wood cooking.
Helping may involve...
Wood collecting , log-splitting (mechanical,) painting,
pruning, cooking, GARDENING , general farm-work .Open to negotiation . Happy to help out with the English language.... but you must have good basic English . I think communication is critically important.
Please do not apply if you cannot speak intermediate/basic English.
I am very keen to get a major house clean done!

I am very interested in self-sufficiency and energy conservation- but live a comfortable life.The nearest shop is 10 minutes by car.
Very relaxed and fit 67yr old bloke.
Europeans welcome. You will be well looked after- but I ask you to make at least one telephone call before you come.
Wifi is available - for emails etc ; not for movie$ please.
4 hours real work = bed+meals+great conversation. Prefer you to be independent and show initiative , a hearty independence and genuine interest. You must be a non-smoker.
Also expect a stay of about 5 - 8 days.
Cooking, or any skills will be looked upon favorably.
I am looking for help doing some physical work outdoors -my home is very cool on hot summer days ! And very warm in winter!
Please note: I do NOT do Work Visas. I would also appreciate a recent photo of you on this website.
All I really need is a good helper.....

Looking for about 5 day stays..
If you can use a chainsaw that would be handy....
Cheers, Garry.
Ps. Take a peek at helpers references.
no- smoking please.....
Itís winter! .... nice warm house, with a wood heater at night.
