** With the beautiful spring rain and sun, we are currently seeking help to clear the hazelnut grove, vegetable planting, and setting up garden beds **

Hi! We are a young family (Eddy, Phuong & our 2yr old son Vinh) in the Yarra Valley and are fortunate to call 54 acres of incredible rainforest and farmland our home. Phuong is a shiatsu practitioner, keen gardener and loves cooking. Eddy manages the farm/cottages and loves building from recycled goods. We are passionate about sustainable living, sense of community and promoting local produce. We love meeting new people and sharing skills and learning from others/different cultures.

Our property is located only 1.5 hours from Melbourne and is nestled in the mountain between the popular tourist towns Healesville and Warburton, which are know for the local arts/produce, nature life, and wineries. We manage several organic hazelnut and chestnuts groves, vegetable gardens, berry patches, and 3 self-contained rental cottages.

We are ideally looking for a couple or two friends who enjoy working outdoors, is keen to learn and has a positive can-do attitude. Currently we are seeking help in landscaping, chopping firewood, clearing the hazelnut orchard, gardening and maintenance depending on your skills and interests.

You would have your own private cottage accommodation, which is fully self-contained with a kitchen, spa bath and wood fire to unwind and enjoy the incredible mountains and wildlife. Wi-fi is also available. As the cottage has a kitchen, you will mostly prepare your own meals, and we may share some meals together.

In exchange private accommodation, we are expecting 4-6 hour working day with two days off a week. Having your own transport would be ideal, however, we can arrange pickup from the nearest train station Lilydale which is 30 minutes away. Our preference is to host for 1 or 2 weeks minimum.

We all look forward to hearing from you if the above suits what you are looking for.
