AFTER OCTOBER - date to be determined once accommodation is ready...
We are an easy going couple living off-grid on a rural lifestyle property 90 minutes from Melbourne. We have a large productive kitchen garden, chickens, friendly horses, and dog. There's a small timber plantation, natural habitat/reveg, dams for swimming and fishing. For those interested in sailing there's an opportunity to crew with us in Melbourne (racing/cruising).
We want to host a dependable couple/2 friends preferably with building/landscaping experience who can help us complete renovations to a self contained living/shed space and landscaping. Other tasks may include firewood collection, general gardening, tend horses/chickens, fencing, ride on mowing, light housework, cooking or whatever you'd like to do! 2 weeks stay preferred - longer by agreement.
Local area: Yarra valley wineries, Lake Mountain skiing, Cathedral Mountain range bushwalking, fishing, mountain bike riding. We've had travellers stay over the years, have had a lot of great times with mutual benefits for all.
Our home is fully off grid (solar/gas/water tanks) with unlimited internet access. Accommodation in the new shed. Great views, quiet location, mountain bikes for your use, BBQ's watching the sunset, see kangaroos and other wildlife. We can provide transport to/from Melbourne. We will make sure you enjoy your stay, can cater for vegans and meat eaters...
