Area: Mullumbimby near Byron Bay in New South WalesWe have a 75 acre mountain rainforest landscape in the hinterland behind Byron Bay and near the town of Mullumbimby. Certified organic, we grow lemons, limes, oranges, ginger and turmeric but dont do much commercially and mostly have gardens and orchards for our own use. We have a few dwellings spread out of the farm and a small handful of residents at any one time, working on and off site. Accommodation is usually offered in a private, self contained space with your own bathroom, Internet, kitchen, TV, movies, music, library. Sometimes it is in our guest accommodation used for holiday rentals and other times in circular domes, yurts or cabins. Work is a mix of varied jobs with some ongoing garden tasks including watering, planting, fertilising, weeding, seeding, harvesting. Other jobs are often small and varied and could include things like painting, oiling, sorting, repairing and animal care with our sheep, cows and chickens. Other work can include help with laundry, cleaning, preparing guest spaces, mowing grass and general jobs around the houses and dwellings. We have a background in permaculture, sustainable living education and consulting. We have lots of self-reliance and permaculture systems being used to provide food, water, medicine, shelter, animals and energy. We also research ethnobotany, the cultural use of plants and when rare time permits...enjoy making things like herbal medicines, cosmetics and other useful products from our gardens. Some, if not most work is done without supervision and you'd need to be comfortable working alone or with another work exchange guest. However explanations, demonstrations and group work sessions all allow for learning information and skills related to organic gardening / farming, self-reliance, herbal medicine, nutrition and sustainable living. Good food is supplied but you need to be prepared to cook for yourself and make your own meals with food supplied. We do have some group gatherings and share some meals day or night but due to evening work and personal commitments, you need to be OK about keeping yourself occupied at night. We have many movies, books, magazines, internet and music and the farm itself has beautiful mountain valley views, rainforest walks, animals and nearby are numerous fresh water swimming holes, bike rides and other things to do. Mullumbimby is a great diverse town nearby with people from around the world and lots going on with many activities and events to engage with.Byron Bay has even more. We supply two circular shelter systems from the farm, one called Blue Mountain Yurts and the other Domain Domes - both are innovative circular housing and shelter systems. Let us know what your interests are, any relevant skills and what your plans are and we can discuss things further.
Area:We are a family of five living on the south west coast of Norway. We run a small organic farm on the shore of the sea. We are building up our farm and have a lot of plans and ideas of what we want to do. We are moving slowly towards a permaculture farm and find our life very exciting, challenging and meaningfull. We have sheep and pigs and feed up some calfs from time to time. We want chickens. We also grow food for the animals and potatoes, vegetables to our self and for sale. We also have some fruits and berries. Most of the time we have smaller or bigger buildingprojects. The farm and small children and some extra work to get in some extra money fill most of our time. But we very much like to get out and about in the mountains, forest, sea or anywhere nice to explore around us. We also love books, games and a good conversation. We are trying to make as little mark on earth as possible without being to successful...
