    Description

    Located on the Coral Coast of Viti Levu, we are a local family cultivating a space to share exploratory experiences of peace, creativity and nature. We are also on a journey of learning to grow a permaculture garden and create space for a balanced existence. We are looking for carpenters, eco-builders, landscapers, permaculture gardeners, to help us realise the dream. Also interested in people with experience in festivals and gathering community.

    You should enjoy dogs and be willing and happy to get your hands earthed and sweaty.
    You are welcome to share your cooking skills as we do love trying new dishes and sharing ideas on food :) If you are able, I may ask that you bring something that we have difficulty getting here.. like dried herbs, cheese, nuts or organic seeds. We live in a semi rural space with beautiful beaches and great surf spots- (Hideaway, river mouth & Natadola) sand dunes, local villages, and are 10 mins out of Sigatoka town.

    Accommodation in a traditional Fijian house a light breakfast of fruit, toast/cereal and dinner in exchange for 5 hours work per day. Sundays are a day off where you go out to sightsee and you take care of your own meals on this day.
    You are also responsible for your lunches, which you prepare on your own.. please make time to visit the local market for your supplies. We provide you with an ski with ice and you have full use of a kitchenette in the common area.

    Internet access in Fiji is very affordable. You can purchase a sim card for $6-7 and get data from $2.
    In your free time, You can beach comb, swim, surf, kayak, trek, visit our sand dune national park or pottery villages. We prefer that you go out during your 'off' time especially if here during weekends.. There are lots to see and do!!
    Time frame begins at 1 week depending on availability and exchange.
    It takes 1.5 hours to get here from the airport and buses are frequent. You must arrive at ours before 6:30 pm.
    When contacting us, please state what skills/ talents/ sharing you are able to offer for exchange. Vinaka
