  • Description



    My name is James and I live on the central coast in NSW ( Umina). I am located about 2km from the nearest beach and surrounded by various other beaches, national parks that is great for swimming, hiking, fishing, surfing and just lazing about in the sun. I live on a big block with 3 properties and will be blocking out my rentals calendar to allow help exchange for several people who would be able to assist. The accomodation you would be staying in has 2 bedrooms and 3 beds in total so couples would be preferred. You have to be ok with sharing the house with other workawayers while staying. As I will be blocking out my rentals I need people who are good helpers while they stay although I definately want you to be able to enjoy the coast on your days off. I would be asking around 15 hours per week of help ( 5 hours per day for 3 days , with 4 days off)
    I need the following skills
    -Gardening skills, help with growing food and setting up raised garden beds
    - Help with painting and general maintanence
    - Rubbish/construction material removal will be involved
    - Setting up irrigation system for vegetables/plants

    You must also like dogs as I have 2 german shepherds (very friendly)

    In return I will offer you accommodation as well as the use of my car to explore on your days off providing I am not using it.

    Any questions please let me know. Please only apply if you think you have the necessary skills. Please confirm your experience/skills when applying.

    Thanks !
