I live on the outskirts of Maclean in Northern NSW, Australia. I practice Permaculture and have a ''Hobby Farm''
My main interest is building, sustainability and the environment. I want to show people by way of ongoing workshops how to build cheaply and avoid being tied into a huge mortgage for most of their lives.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
Help with Computers/ Internet
Travellers will benefit in so many different ways;
As I have been a Plumber, Builder all my working life and also practice Permaculture and Bio-dynamic gardening, I have a lot of knowledge and experience to share. I have a worm farm [an absolute 'must do' for any gardener] and have developed an on site sewerage treatment and water recycling system.
So for anyone who wants to live a self sustainable as possible, organic, economic lifestyle without a huge mortgage to be enslaved by,,,, I can help
The help I need ranges from house work and cooking to gardening, animal feeding, building, landscaping etc.
At the moment I need a carpenter and general labour to build tables, benches, cob oven and bbq. pits ETC. to accommodate a larger number of helpers at a time to work on a house which is Economic to build, Eco-friendly and sustainable and Energy efficient. A type of ''Hobbit House''.
Post and Beam construction with a earth/grass ''Green Roof'' and Straw Bale, Cob and Wood Stack walls and Earth Floors
Accommodation is my straw bale house with a caravan for visitors bedroom and/or a self contained flat.
There is also a camping option.
I'm near Maclean, halfway between Byron Bay and Coffs Harbour. TOWN, RIVER and BEACHES are only 10mins. away. It's a quiet area, bush and Kangaroos at the back door.We have World Heritage Rainforests, NATIONAL PARKS, rivers and beautiful beaches.
There's plenty to see and do and if you can drive my car I'd love to show you around the area.
You don't need building skills, just be willing to work and learn.
