    Beschreibung

    We operate an organic permaculture homestead offering life / work experience in environmental regeneration, resourceful building and sustainable homesteading. As a wildlife sanctuary and part of ProEco (an environmental non-profit/charity). We (usually) host short courses in horticulture, native regeneration, ecology, geology, bio-dynamics, astronomy, and weather -- as well as music, art and meditation retreats -- HOWEVER, these have been temporarily suspended.

    Located in the beautiful Noosa Hinterlands of the Sunshine Coast region in Queensland Australia. Our place is a 50 acre, rather remote, plot near the top of Black Mountain with views of our surrounding volcanic region. Our wondrous place is 1/3 cleared grass/gardens, 1/3 forested timber, and 1/3 rugged native bush. We have among the largest collections of Bromeliads (over 6000) and Frangipani (over 300) you'll find. There are endless varieties of feathered, fury, and scaly creatures -- we enjoy and respect them all! Native regeneration underway over 30 years and we are now more permaculture focused (to care for the land, care for people, and share the abundance).

    My partner and I are easy-going, middle age guys, well-traveled, multi-lingual and focus on quality of life and try to live each day to the fullest. This means sharing great meals, camaraderie, and activities that are both rewarding yet productive. We ordinarily make time to enjoy the weather, sunsets, stars, hike the local trails, and we hit the nearby lakes, beaches and festivals often -- however, these days we stay close to home.

    I'm Brett, an environmental engineer by training, a builder and jack-of-all trades, and active outdoors man. Nick runs an online travel business and does aged care by day yet works around the place and cares for our animals and gardens when possible. Both of us are very active around the place and work with you rather than having "chores".

    Often looking for helpers, teachers, students -- as we're all learning each and every day! We stay busy... if you are looking to participate in an active retreat with space to be with nature and enjoy tranquility with yourself -- then we are likely well suited.

    Come join us in growing our garden/orchards, building new structures, enhancing hiking trails, and other amenities for future guests. We always enjoy and appreciate a variety of cultures, skills and perspectives.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Though we work on numerous projects by day -- we welcome creatives, naturalist, and others who enjoy varied activities as we work together or relax. We utilise bio-dynamic, organic, and permaculture practices and are pleased to share and engage visitors keen to participate. Shared wholesome "flexitarian" meals where everyone contributes -- harvest, prep, cook, clean; and comfortable accommodation in a peaceful environment provided. Property has varied forests, hiking trails, creeks, wildlife and many birds -- a real nature paradise! We encourage our helpers to get out and enjoy the area.

  • Arbeit

    Arbeit

    Varied activities including: tending to gardens & orchards, hiking trail maintenance, land-care improvements, permaculture implementation, and helping with harvest of fruit and veggies for our shared meals. We are also expanding and developing our WordPress websites if you are an experienced web person.

    Over the next few months we plan to: expand our equipment shed, build a tiny house treehouse, hiking trail enhancements, erosion control measures, several native tree planting projects, a mobile greenhouse build, more raised garden beds, and build a rocket stove hot water heater/pizza oven. Many of our projects are quite physically demanding so strength, stamina and determination are highly regarded.

    As we endeavour to accommodate many visitors, our average visit is 7-10 days -- (extension if projects, space, and camaraderie permit). Apologies in advance if you are looking for visa sponsorship as we cannot assist.
