We live on a beautiful peaceful small farm just 25 minutes from the centre of Canberra, Australia's capital city. We have an abundance of flora and fauna on the property, both natural and in man made gardens, orchards, ponds, dam etc. Wildlife on the property includes lots of birds, kangaroos, water dragons, frogs, lizards, echidna. Springtime has an abundance of wildflowers on the property as well as in nearby reserves.
Feel free to email and ask any questions. :)

Help around the house
Being so close to Canberra the capital of Australia has a lot to offer i.e. musuems, art galleries, parliament house, cafes, restaurants. We also love our environment and happy to share in what we are doing to maintain our land for wildlife, as well as how we are growing our orchards and gardens as well as our lives in line with permaculture principles. We have done a bit of travelling, enjoy adventures and enjoy meeting new people.
We are looking for an easy going friendly couple, or a single person. Families and children are also welcome. We both work in health field and love to travel. We really value people who are interested in a permaculture lifestyle and willing to help us with tasks around our farm, house and garden to maintain the property and grow the food we eat. Likely tasks to include (at all times of the year): gardening; fertilising (natural), mulching, weeding, pruning and propogating tree / shrubs, mowing (ride on), cooking and other assorted jobs. Happy to negotiate help based on your interests. We are wanting to cover our organic orchard and set up a polytunnel with wicking beds so if you also have skills in this area, they would also be greatly appreciated!
We have a very comfortable bedroom (one double and one with two singles in) with own bathroom for guests. The house is also full of relaxing spaces inside and out to take in the peaceful views. We also have space for a campervan/caravan with access to power and rainwater tank
Wifi is available and generally works fine for us to work from home.
If you would like to take in all the capital city of Australia has to offer as well as the bush walks, and the coast only 1.5 hours away, you will need your own transport. If you don't have transport, we are happy to pick you up and drop you into Canberra or Queanbeyan when we are going there.
In return for two hours of help each day we will provide accommodation, access to free internet, while you self-cater, or 4 hours a day for vegetarian or vegan meals as well. The sense of humour and sharing of stories and experiences is free!
