    Description

    Hi, we live on a 220 acre farm west of yamba nsw, the property is mainly native forest with a few paddocks we use for small crops and currently setting up a permaculture orchard.
    We live on top of a mountain they is great views and bush walks with plenty of wildlife, they is three houses on the property completely off grid with spring and rain water, I can offer to workaway guests, a bed in a rustic style two story hut, our driveway is 1.5 kms long and they is no public transport to town, so i would recommend this place to travellers with a car unless you are happy to sit around in the bush, i am looking for anybody who is keen to just give a general hand around the farm anything they feel comfortable to help with they is always plenty to do. I am spending the next 12 months forming a permaculture orchard on 2 acres of land, if you like Australian wildlife and want to get your hands in the soil you are more then welcome to stay for a bit.

    I can put up accommodation but not food so I only expect 3 or 4 hours a day of general help seting up a permacultrue orchard its pretty flexible, and the help i will allocate will be whatever you want to learn about or enjoy doing most. Help will be generally around the farm in building to gardening.
