    I would love some keen workawayers who love a simple life to come and get the garden going. I would love to get the garden happening. I am a Steiner school class teacher and love gardening and growing food and would love to one day start or be part of some kind of self sustainable community. At the moment though I have not much time for my garden so would love some help with getting it going; doing lots of clearing, planting lots of herbs, fruit trees and building an oven to make use of the wood that is everywhere in the forest that surrounds.

    I have a small house that is located in the rainforest and very close to the barron river. It is a beautiful place for stillness. I have no electricity. There is tank water and gas for hot bucket showers and for cooking. I am wanting to make the place as self-sustainable as possible. Some friends and I, had a go of making a rocket stove recently and the next project that i want to get underway is an oven for bread making etc. There is an abundance of wood around the place being in the rainforest and we're mad not to make use of it. I want to then grow as many vegies and edible plants and fruit trees around the block as i can. There is always something to do and as I am working a lot during the day I thought it would be really nice to have some volunteers in to get things happening while I'm at work and I would of course join in when I could. I guess you have to want to live very simply, are interested in gardening and herbs etc and mainly forage for food. (Though I would of course cook at least one veg meal a day and make bread and jam etc for breakky etc). I am in to meditation and yoga and not so keen on drugs, smoking or alcohol. I'm easy to get along with and would love to work and learn alongside you but also be able to trust you and leave you to hang out with my beautiful dog during the day.

    At the moment there is a spare room with a double matress. There is also another spare matress in the living area. It's also possible to put tents outside or sleep on the verandah at the back etc. There is no electricity or internet or anything. In can be quiet. If you love the river it is just behind and perfect for a daily swim.

    Kuranda is very close to Cairns. It is a beautiful quiet and tranquil part of the world and a good place for a retreat.
