  • Beschreibung


    We are beginning to expand our community out here at the farm, and would love enthusiastic, excited helpers to lend a hand as we build Tiny Houses, Communal Spaces, and many more jobs on the list.

    There is also the opportunity for employment at some local places, which we'd love to help you get a few paid days work there, and also help around the farm on your other days.

    We are an organic, free-range family of 6 living in Hillend, in the lush foothill forest of Mount Baw Baw Victoria.

    We run an organic vege patch on 20 acres to promote our self sustainable life style.

    Our 4 kids (stephie 13, Matty 11, Elisandra 9 & james 5) are homeschooled and very engaged. We would love to Have workaways come and join us from different countries so our kids can experience many different cultures and lifestyles. We would love people who are open minded, looking for happiness and fulfillment in knowledge to come share this experience with us.

    Jobs around the farm includes (but not limited to) collecting eggs, planting seedlings, weeding, composting and harvesting fruit and vegetables, building tiny homes, general construction.

    Leni and Paul are two of the most generous, loving people you can come across. They will endlessly try and make your stay more enjoyable and nourishing. They care very much for the people around them and the spaces they hold. You will always be welcome and always be looked after!

    ---- UPDATE ----
    We have been expanding the farm over the last few months and would love some more hands to help us out. Hayden has been enlisted to help us build a variety of tiny houses and accomodation spaces, including a large shed conversion to become a communal space. Hayden has just completed an incredibly successful Workaway project down the road which was full of life and fun! Anyone interested in carpentry or natural building or just wanting to help swing a hammer, we would love to have you! Hayden is a wealth of knowledge about natural building and alternative lifestyles, so come and pick his brain!

    We are a bustling, busy family plus extended helpers, and we would love to have you here with us!

    See you soon!

    We are in the process of extending our reach and production of food here on the farm, and need a communal space built for the community, and tiny houses for more accomodation for volunteers. There is also a large number of farm jobs that we'd love a hand with including planting and harvesting all the amazing food we eat.
