G'day folks!

*We are only accepting requests of two weeks at this stage*

We live on 10 acres of land just outside Castlemaine, approximately 1.5hrs from Melbourne. I know that we have set our location as Melbourne but that's so that we can get your attention... We're really not too far away!!

We are in the process of establishing ourselves on our block, and as well as a few current projects we need some help with the maintenance of our little farm.

At our place you will find bees, chickens, horses and a friendly dog or two. There is a half finished vegetable garden and a fruit orchard that needs some help. There are also weeds that need removing, fences that need fixing, seeds that need raising, trees that need planting, and a house that could do with a bit of a tidy up on the outside. Your duties would include helping out with these tasks, and hopefully a little cooking and keeping the kitchen tidy.

In exchange for 4-6 hours per day of help, you will of course receive food and accommodation. We enjoy communal meals as much as possible and try to provide a range of nutritious food, though we cannot really cater to specialised diets other than vegetarian (eg vegan, gluten-free etc). We currently have internet which you are welcome to use, so long as it is treated respectfully. You should expect to have 1-2 rest days per week, and if we can we will show you around our beautiful area or take a trip to Melbourne.

It is really easy to get to our place! If you have your own transport we will provide you with the details. If you are arriving by train, we can arrange to pick you up from the nearby Castlemaine railway station.

Our son Kieran lives in Melbourne and there is definitely a chance for you to stay at his place when you're not busy at our place. He lives close to the beach and will be happy to show you around.

When you apply, tell us about yourself! Where have you been? Where are you coming from? Do you have any specialised skills? (Anything at all! whether it be carpentry, snake-charming, frisbee throwing, banjo playing, wool-spinning, juggling... whatever!)
