  • Description

    Description

    Hi, we are located 1 hour north of Sydney. We bought a farm when our children came along to teach them about the outdoors, climbing trees, adventure and exploring. We want them to know where food comes from with growing our own food and meat. Our dream is to be off off grid and self sufficient.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am happy to help with your English, my husband can speak a bit of Dutch, German, French and Spanish. Speaking with the children is another great way of improving English, reading them stories. We have a tractor you can learn to drive. Learning to care for the animals and the land. I have a keen interest in permaculture and biodynamic gardening, although as yet don't have an established veggie garden; hence the need for helpers. You will get to see what a wonderful lifestyle you can have in Australia. I love cooking and am happy to teach some Australian dishes. We are surrounded in State forest, which is good for walks and mountain biking, there are Kangaroos, wombats and plenty of wildlife. I love craft and sewing. My Instagram site is Rebecca Clark 'rjc handmade Australia'. I like photography. We overlook the sea and watch the sunrise, I would recommend getting up early to start the day with a yoga session. It's really beautiful. We have two guitars.

    We are a busy household with three young children, staying with us is being part of our family. We would love to you teach the children your language. You are welcome to play games with them and help out with their activities. I mostly need help with general chores around the house, no skills needed - if you can follow instructions and are enthusiastic you'll be fine. We start work 8am. We have a salt-water swimming pool to relax in when you're done.
