    Hello! This is a project exploring conscious living and we invite you to join us to eat, share, play, learn and celebrate life! After years of studying and travelling, we have sunk our roots down and committed to having our hands in the soil, breathing the fresh mountain air and working towards positive growth and healing.

    We are based on a large and peaceful organic farm, up in the mountains near Stanthorpe at the QLD/NSW border, about 3hrs from Brisbane. Nature is at our doorstep, with opportunities to explore the granite boulders, large trees and wildlife on the property. Nearby are two National Parks - Girraween and Bald Rock, plus waterfalls and swimming holes, foodie destinations, wineries, markets and community classes (e.g. yoga and dance).

    We are a polyamorous family of three adults and two toddlers (23 mo and 10 mo). We live in the large, original homestead on the property (which we are gradually renovating), surrounded by beautiful gardens. We share our home with animals: a dog, 3 cats and many chickens, ducks, goats and cows, so you will need to be comfortable with them too. It is our vision to share this space with you.

    Our work is quite varied and includes many projects: cooking and preserving, cleaning, gardening, building and renovating. Now we have two small children, we especially need assistance with cooking meals, cleaning and childcare in addition to our normal work. We would love people who want to engage with our children and share with them other languages, skills, passions.

    We ask you to be respectful, clean/ tidy and give tasks a wholehearted go. Though there are certain tasks that regularly need doing, our work is flexible and we like to see our helpers doing things they enjoy. We value every volunteer and the unique contribution their presence brings.

    Generally the hours of help needed are 25 hours per week. Some days will be longer and some shorter and we value having full days of rest too. Please note we prefer our helpers to stay for at least 2 weeks.
