General organic farm work and accommodation building project. We are located in the lushest greenest valley of Victoria - while the rest of Australia is on fire or in drought come to this patch of paradise!

1 month minimum stay is our preference

***We are currently seeking helpers with experiences in gardening and/or building. The tasks will be a mix of bed preparation, planting, propagating seeds, general maintenance like mowing and weeding, and care of our animals. A good level of fitness is required as the work can be physically demanding at times.

About us: This is a co-operative permaculture farm, and a community of 3 families who value and practice yoga, alternative therapies, conscious parenting, education, hand crafting and self sufficiency skills and technologies. We have an organic veggie growing CSA garden, an heirloom seedlings nursery, and an events space focusing on arts, crafts, permaculture education and wellbeing.

We have 4 goats, lots of chickens, and a flock of ducks and geese, and are planting a food forest and fruit orchards.

We have found that people who are interested in permaculture, intentional community living, holistic health and wellbeing, yoga, arts and crafts as a sacred practice, and earth stewardship get the most value from their stay here. There are ample opportunities to share and apply your gifts and explore your passions in very real ways.

We regularly host seasonal community events where helpers contributions are always appreciated.

Some meals are self catered and others are shared with families. In either case you will enjoy the freshest, most wholesome food primarily sourced from the farm.

Accomodation is basic but comfortable. We have some caravans and some indoor rooms and camping is an option. Depending on seasonal demand, we may have more helpers sharing facilities and providing company.
1 month is our minimum stay but shorter stays may be considered for the right people.

The farm is located on a 15 acre property in the scenic Yarra Valley, 90min from Melbourne by public transport with bus stops nearby.

French and English speaking. Wifi available. Beautiful walks by the river down to local shops and plenty of Australian forest to enjoy. Bikes are available to explore the local area and the famous Warby Trail.

Please check our website for more info about who we are and what we do.
