U P D A T E -
LATER ON - AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER WE WOULD APPRECIATE MORE HELP HERE PLEASE.
SINCE SELLING OUR 40 ACRES IN BAYLES WE HAVE BOUGHT A LIFESTYLE PROPERTY IN GLENGARRY IN EAST GIPPSLAND. MOST OF THE BIGGER JOBS ARE DONE.NOW THERE IS GENERAL TIDYING UP AND SWEEPING UP OF BARK AND SMALL BRANCH DROP THAT THE WINDS WE HAVE HAD IN THE INCLEMENT WEATHER.
UNFORTUNATELY OUR LAST SUMMER WAS SO HOT, OUR PLANTS SUFFERED BADLY. YET WITH RECENT HELP AND ADVICE FROM A VERY EXPERIENCED HELPX WE HAVE DONE WELL HERE TOO. WILL MULCH THIS SEASON AND PROTECT THE SOIL AND ROOTS OF THE PLANTS.
ALL A PART OF GETTING TO KNOW A NEW AREA AND LEARNING FROM EXPERIENCE VERY DIFFERENT HERE TO OUR OLD PLACE.
YOUR HELP WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED.
WE MUST MENTION WE NEED YOU TO HAVE A REASONABLE COMMAND OF ENGLISH. FROM PAST EXPERIENCE IT HAS BEEN VERY DIFFICULT OTHERWISE. AS THAT IS OUR ONLY LANGUAGE.
CALL US IF THIS SUITS YOU....
Our home is more a lifestyle place of 6 acres
Plenty of accommodation with a fabulous pool and outdoor areas to relax. Including a great Pool Table where everyone can socialise.
You will be invited to join in family functions, as well as encouraged to share your lifes experiences. ANYONE THAT LOVES COOKING we love trying new food.
Of course Helpers are welcome to have time off so they can explore the interesting places close by Including bike tracks. We have bikes for your use. Lots of great places to visit. We are 9kms north of Traralgon. One hour from Inverloch's magnificent beaches. Less than an hour to Mount Baw Baw if you like the snow. A little less distance to Walhalla, an old mining town with quaint places to see and to eat at. Bush walks included. We know there is much more areas to explore. To numerous to mention. Traralgon is a big shopping complex with plenty to see and do. Glengarry has much to offer also ...the Bakery is well known as one of the best.
HELP... is mainly outside with general cleaning up i.e. some fencing, feeding of our 2 retired horses, cutting of grass. We have 2 big dogs that would lick you to death Neema and Buddy. Of course for those that can keep house we need that too. As I am in Melbourne half the week. So Jim would love not to cook.
We do want people to have mutual respect for us, as we would for you. Please don't bring drugs to our home and social drinking only please. That is not to say we don't have times we let our hair down, of course we do !!!
VERY IMPORTANT - We would appreciate no smoking.
Minimum stay 2 weeks. But can negotiate longer.
THIS IS UNPAID WORK. WORK IN RETURN FOR FOOD AND LODGINGS.
The VLine Train leaves Southern Cross regularly, travelling through to Traralgon. Approximately a 2 hour journey. We will pick you up at Traralgon.
