I live on a 38 acre conservation property (a banksia woodland with pristine wetland) about 4km from Capel town, surrounded by nature and wildlife. I am an architect and designer trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle. There is an opportunity to learn about the Australian environment, some of it's flora and fauna, gardening/permaculture principles, improve English skills, being resourceful, fixing and building things with hands and tools.

We are in the process of rehabilitating the property and continually maintaining the gardens, house, wetland and banksia woodlands. Volunteers are welcome to help on any of the following depending the time of year and desires/skills of the volunteer: watering plants in summer, weeding (garden or conservation zone), feeding worms, propagating & planting, help with renovations and construction work, recycling and fixing things like fencing, general tidying up and some cleaning. We expect guests to work a minimum 8-10 hours (1 day) per week.

I live in a small house, which is currently being renovated but is fully-functional (shared facilities). There is an adjoining guest room with king size bed, small kitchenette, inc kettle and toaster so you can be independent if you like. Some meals (shared and self-catered) will be provided depending on hours worked. We have internet, limited rain water, plentiful bore water, solar power and mains electricity.

Ideally you will have your own car to have the freedom to explore and make the most this great location. The property is close to Capel town (4km), half way between major centers Busselton and Bunbury. Beautiful beaches only 13km from the property. Less than an hour to world famous surf spots, forests, caves and wineries. Borrow the kayak, or go bush walking, see wildlife including dolphins, emus, kangaroos. Buses and shuttles from Capel to Bunbury/Perth/surrounds are available daily.
