    Help

    We require help to maintain the property to enhance the cooking school vision. As a result, we require ongoing maintenance of both the surrounding gardens, vegetable patch , orchard and house work. We also will need help with the farming work which will include such things as fencing, animal care, harvesting and generally keeping the farm neat and tidy.

    We have had many young people from numerous countries stay with us. We are happy to provide help with spoken English and we hope to provide a home away from home. We also love to share our culture with others and learn about other people's cultures. We enjoy having friendly, respectful people staying with us. During free time, there are many lovely walks in this area. We are situated close to the Huon River and we can provide bicycles for your use. Cygnet is a lovely little town with cafes and a vibrant Sunday market. There are also buses to Hobart from Cygnet daily.
