    Description

    I am a Canadian, Peter 42, living in paradise in a 4bdrm house on a 1 acre property just north of Brisbane CBD. I am looking for help with gardening and some building. The property has many fruit trees including mango, lychee, citrus, macadamian nut, banana which always seem to need some caring for whether it be pruning, picking or mulching, the fern house has heaps of plants that need to be transplanted to new garden beds that don't exist. I have started renovating the granny flat and could use some help with that for those that are handy with the tools, or can always use a gopher when up on the ladder.
    You would have your own room, 3 meals a day for 5hrs of work 5 days. As I am still fairly new to Australia I usually take trips on weekends to the coast to try the surf or inland for hiking, so the company would be welcome during those times as well. Brisbane CBD is 35min by train and the station is 15min walk from the house, the same train will take you to the sunshine or gold coast. If the koalas aren't in the trees in the yard the local parks can often offer sightings along with owls and possum.
