G’Day…. I (Ishram) live on a peaceful 8 hectare rural property (not a farm) on the outskirts of Creswick (1.5 hrs N.West of Melbourne). Creswick is a great little town with the best french patisserie in Victoria. It has public transport links to Melbourne, Ballarat and Daylesford, some lovely walks and a great lake to swim in.
I thoroughly enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and nationalities. I am well travelled and since retiring a few years ago am actively involved in a community education project in Brazil, where I spend several weeks each year.
My interests include mayan astrology, healing, sustainablility and environmental issue.
I have three grown up daughters and 4 grandchildren.

Learn about the Australian bush, organic gardening and mayan astrology! , The property runs completely on solar energy and rainwater so you would gain experience of 100% off grid living!
I’m currently looking for Ideally a couple to help with chopping wood, land clearance, gardening/weeding, house maintenance and general tidying up of the property. DIY and basic carpentry skills would be great. Stays between 3 and 7 days welcome, longer depending on skill sets. Workaways are also asked to muck in with housework and cooking.
Because there is one bedroom and a yurt I am ideally looking for a couple . Hours depend on what I need you to do, so you must be flexible, but you will help a maximum of four hours a day 5 days a week.
Accommodation is own room (double bed) with own bathroom and /or yurt if preferred. Because there is one bedroom and a yurt I am ideally looking for a couple or 2 helpers. It’s a beautiful house with great kitchen and living spaces, various outbuildings, a yurt and a sauna!! Its completely off grid (solar and rainwater tanks) with an organic vegie garden and greenhouse.
A rustic cabin (converted work site caravan) is also available that has water, a shower, power and this would suit a single person .... and the hours associated with this option are negotiable
Workaways cannot smoke on the property as this is a HIGH fire risk area. No drugs or excessive alcohol consumption allowed but a beer or glass of wine at the end of the day certainly not frowned upon! This is NOT the place for the 'party crowd', or lazybones .Its important to understand that this property is 25 mins walk from Creswick but I do drive in most days and go to Ballarat at least once a week and sometimes Melbourne. I can collect/deliver you to/from Creswick/Ballarat and am happy to go sight seeing locally IF time permits and/or check out some local music venues nearby. Bikes available. Please contact for further info.
