  • Description

    Description

    We are lucky to live on a gorgeous 177 acre farm in Tallangatta Valley in beautiful North East Victoria. We have accommodation for large groups such as school camps. At the back of property we have a huge dam with a stunning outlook across the valley. A perfect place to enjoy a relaxing paddle in a canoe. We have beef cattle, sheep, dogs and a very cheeky deer, plus many different birds visit the property. Our family, Brian & Tanya with children Sean and Layla, purchased the property in December 2017. We need assistance with general farm maintenance and gardening. We've planted an orchard and veggie patch.

    If you don't have your own transport we can pick you up from Albury/Wodonga.

    Help

    We need help with gardening and general farm maintenance. We have lots of things to do and you can choose what suits your skills and you are comfortable to do.

    We've recently put in a large veggie garden and orchard. We hope in the future to be self-sustaining for our family and volunteers. We'd like to add small sculptures/things of interest to our garden. If you are artistic and think you could re-purpose old farm junk into garden artwork, then please come and give it a go.
