  • Beschreibung


    I am a writer and teacher live in a lovely house on a generous double block in Chewton, near Castlemaine. I am sixty-one, work part-time, am active, and enjoy being in nature. I am a passionate and creative gardener and apply permaculture principles and practices to my property. I moved to this house in December 2018. The community here is artistic and friendly which is partly what attracted me to this area. I have two adult children and two young grandchildren and another due in March this year. My family come and stay here from time to time. There are always gardening projects on the go. I plan to build a small self-contained dwelling, and am preparing slowly for this. This summer I discovered I have a blue-tongue lizard living here too.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    I have taught English to non-native speakers for twenty years as my occupation. I love helping people to learn. I am relatively new to the goldfields area and enjoy discovering the region and would include Workaways in this visiting areas of interest. I enjoy swimming at the local swimming spot and walking in nature. I am an experienced and resourceful gardener and love to share the knowledge I have gained.

    Castlemaine is the closest railway station and Chewton is about seven kilometres from there. There is a bus to Chewton from Castlemaine.I have a car and can help with transport. Chewton is a historic village and there are many walking tracks to discover the goldfields. I live a quiet busy life, live simply and in a sustainable fashion.
