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 a dog called Zac. We have a small timber plantation for firewood, natural habitat areas, and dams for swimming and fishing. For those interested in sailing there may an opportunity to sail with us.
We can now host a dependable couple/2 friends preferably with building/landscaping/farm work experience who can help us with landscaping projects, fencing, firewood collection, general gardening, animal husbandry, ride on mowing/tractor slashing. We would prefer that you have travel insurance and your own transport. Flexible hours and 2 weeks stay is preferred - longer by agreement.
Local area: Yarra valley wineries, Cathedral Mountain range bushwalking, fishing, mountain bike riding. We've had quite a few travellers stay over the years, have had a lot of great times with mutual benefits for all. we are fairly new to helpx so only have one reference so far!
