    Description

    We are a family of five - Cath Hazel and Oscar Spike Stewart. Two teenage boys and a younger daughter. We love to travel but find it hard to leave our lovely home, so we invite travellers into our lives instead.

    Cath and I like to do yoga at leat once a week. We also help run a monthly Dance Jam called Dance Your Socks Off!!! in a small community hall. Great Fun. It is well attended by a good cross section of people who are into ecstatic dance.

    We live in Fryers Forest in Central Victoria. You can get here by catching a train from Melbourne to Castlemaine, it is a 1.5 hour trip and we will pick you up from the station.

    Fryers Forest is an intentional community designed along permaculture principals by David Holmgren. It is an eco village, home for 32 individuals ranging in age from 12 months to 83 years. We have a lake stocked with fish and an organic orchard of cherries, apples, pears and plumbs to name a few. The communally owned eucalypt forest is 330 acres. A forest that is slowly healing itself after 150 years of abuse.

    If you have a skill or passion you would like to share we would love you to bring that with you.

    It is great if you can function as part of a dynamic household, that means helping with food preparation and cleaning up etc.

    The work you will be doing really depends on the season. It could involve working in the orchard, gardening or even forestry. Sometimes work might involve work in the kitchen preserving food. You never can tell every day is different.

    We generally like people to stay for at least 10 days, That allows people to get into the rhythm of the place.
