Hi folks,
Hi all ,
With the Covid 19 crisis in our communities , I have changed the number and the type of situation here at Happyville and in fact even changed the name to Creativille .
I have set up my farm to have a camping area for self isolation so that travellers or workers can have a safe place to self isolate or quarantine. All people living at Creativille need to have a verifiable recommended isolation period or quarantine onsite for fourteen days with proven contacts to ensure everyone stays healthy.
So far I have had seven people living here and self isolating and I provide what I can to help out for a fourteen day isolation period. Four of these people have now left here to go to work on farms in the region , and I am able to assure farmers that they are safe and healthy. As people finish isolation they can come to my home side to live and work with me in a helpx situation or go out and seek paid work elsewhere.
, I'm giving a call out for some help with my garden, planting ,weeding and feeding .
Around the farm the the plants are looking healthy and bountiful so I'm hoping for a good yield. I'm also extending the chicken yards and compost heaps so I need a bit of help. The shed which was my home once is being rebuilt as my studio accommodation so anyone with building skills or interest in assisting are welcome

I've built a passive solar, rammed earth and recycled timber house with a composting toilet. I have solar power, a vegetable garden, chickens and a dog. I try to live as organic a lifestyle as possible.If you are living here you need to understand the need and develop practices to conserve power and water as they are finite and can run out if wasted.

I would love some people to come and help with projects inside and outside the house. You would have your own space in a caravan or spare room, afternoons to relax by yourself, and all meals provided (help with preparation and cleaning up is appreciated).

Internet is available through mobile coverage. It is beneficial if you have an international drivers license. Stays would be for one week at first, and if we all agree, I am happy to extend the time.
I require four hours each work and usually wish to start by 8 am so that the afternoons are your own. I prefer you stay at least three or four weeks if we're compatible as it takes a while to get into the rhythm of the place and activities.
I play the ukulele, flute, saxophone, trombone, guitar and harmonica and have been a part time professional musician for 20 years, as well as being a music teacher .
I also work with wood, making hand carved wooden jewellery. I have a 15 year old son Jasper who is here some weeks and on holidays, and who loves the outdoors, board games, music and being creative as much as I do, so children are most welcome.

TransWA bus comes to Pemberton and I am more than happy to pick you up from town.
There are lots of lovely places to visit in your spare time, it's a wonderful region for bush walks, cycle trails, national parks and rivers nearby. I am only 8km from town and make daily trips in, alternatively I can lend you a bike.
