We, a German/ Australian couple are looking for single people or a couple to help us on our property, which is
108 acres, hill country with granite outcrops and endless views to the horizon.

We have a big open shed with open air lounge, camping kitchen, a Yurt, a caravan and a little house. We are revegetating degraded farmland, terracing an organic vegie garden and working towards a sustainable life style based on permaculture principles. We have a dog, a cat and chickens.
Not being on the grid provides a life very much immersed in the elements. We live simply, honouring all life and would love your help in return for free accommodation, healthy food and the sharing of all we have learned so far. You can also learn a lot about carpentry, survival skills, meditation, yoga, wise water use and -harvest, seed saving.
Work is very variable, depending on season, your capability and the mood of the day. It can be roadwork, gardening, whipper snipping, painting, sowing, work in the orchard, construction, rockwork, moving soil etc. We share the daily tasks and cook together. You live in a caravan and the facilities are very simple. Be open for bush life. A pioneer spirit is needed. We are open minded and easy going, no stress but also very focussed and determined in what we want to create here!

Seasonal update middle of January 2018
In this time of year it is very hot out here and we start the day with sunrise, have long siesta and continue a bit when the sun cools down in the late afternoon.
In town is a swimming pool if you like to go swimming in the midday break.
In the moment we are working on a tropical greenhouse-shower- bathroom with dry rock walls.
