  • Description

    Description

    Pete and I have been travelling as workawayers for 3 years now and we would now like to put some back.
    We live in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne right on the edge of a state forest.
    We need help in the garden and some light renovations.
    We are easy going and eat healthy home grown meals with whatever is in season from the garden.
    An excellent spot to use as a base to explore Mt. Dandenong or the Yarra Valley with it's excellent wines.

    Help

    Mainly help in the garden (preparing the vegetable beds for planting out) and depending on skill level perhaps help with some renovations.
    A plumber would be handy.
    Some painting would great.
    A person with paving skills would be most welcome.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live 45 minutes from the city so it's almost a rural environment with shopping centres 5 minutes by car, so it's not isolated but we are surrounded by bushland.
    Public transport is close but we would need to drop you off or cycle.
    Time off could be spent exploring the walking tracks close by (popular with walking clubs), or venture out to the Yarra Valley for some wine tastings.
