Hi my name is Anthony and I live in Red Hill which is located on the Mornington Penninsula just over an hour (by road) from Melbourne. Rolling hills dotted with vineyards and surrounded by the sea, this region is one of Melbournian's most popular "weekend getaway" destinations.

Wake up to the singing birds in a log cabin set amongst the tree tops, borded by an organic apple orchard and fringed by forest. Home to friendly and colourful native bird life and visited by a family of cheeky possums each night. Lovely walks to restaurants, markets and our general store.

I have too many projects to handle by myself as I care for my 9 year old most weekends and some nights during the week.

The projects are varied and include; clearing vegetation, maintaining the organic vegetable garden, planting native trees and shrubs, splitting wood (by machine), building a wood fired oven, setting up chicken coup, painting, decorating and eventually a complete renovation of the existing building - both inside and out..............

Would suit a reasonably fit person (Male, Female or couple, even parents with a children possibly?) that loves the outdoors and is willing to learn new skills and has a happy and relaxed attitude to life.

I have travelled and worked O.S. and understand and support the initiative and principles of Helpx. I am flexible with the actual working days and understand that opportunities arise and you are here not only to work but explore our country.
