Hi All,

We are a friendly vegetarian couple with 2-boys (11-yrs and 3-years). We have an 18-acre 'uncertified' organic farm with a home/shed/studio and dome just outside the sweet little town of Castlemaine, Central Victoria (just over an hour from Melbourne direct by train). We grow over 300 fruit and nut trees, have a large vegetable garden and are always building. We are currently half way through building our main house using lots of unique natural building techniques.

We are really interested in all things permaculture and natural building aligned. We have many permaculture systems in development on our land and our house build is passive solar strawbale with earth render.

We are looking for 1-3 people at any time who share similar passions and specifically who may have some building or horticultural experience, or at least an interest.

We are looking for someone who ideally could chip away at this project sometimes unassisted (but under direction) and would also be able to assist on farm development jobs such as planting trees, watering, pruning, weeding, grass management etc

Expecting 4-5 hours work a day for accommodation, 3 meals and utilities inc wireless broadband internet (bring your own laptop).

Happy for short to extended stays with a minimum of 4-days per visit.
