    Hi my name is Trish, and I live in the beautiful bega valley on the south coast of New South Wales. We are part of a beautiful community that is 15 minutes from the coast.

    Are you looking to be part of a well-being project? Or do you love gardening and sustainable living?

    Help with my Project:
    I believe in the power connection has to improve our health and well-being. I am currently working on a number of projects that working to do that. If you have IT, marketing, admin, artistic, graphic design, sound production or other skills like that and would like to be part of a project around communication and mindset, I would love to have you be part of it.

    Help around my property:
    I am a single mum of two girls with a garden and dreams for it bigger that I can do on my own. I use organic and permaculture principles to grow food for the family with plans to extent the food production further into the property. There is also building (renovation) work, house work and other jobs around the place. Happy to co-create sustainable projects based on your interested and skills, ie. outside bathroom, grey water system, small orchard etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I live in Bega with my two girls and a two dogs. We are a happy crew with a love of our garden and dancing about or having adventures to the coast. I am a single mum and my kids are with me 2/3s of the time.

    I also work from home both in my job as a uni lecturer and in running my own online business as a mindset coach and communication consultant.

    Bega is in the Far south coast of NSW and it is a smallish rural town. There are amazing beaches along the coast here which is 15 minutes away. Bega itself has both a farming based industry as well as an alternative crowd.

    Living with us would be a balance of being in company with us and with time for you too. I enjoy people being around and also value time to myself and my family. You have your own cabin and in the evenings and on the weekends we like to have the main house to ourselves.

    To live with us you will need to be courteous and as there are children around, we are a swearing free zone.
