  • Description


    We are a family of five, consisting of Francesco, Seija, two wonderful home educated girls; Lexi and Charlie and our young son, Matteo. We have a wellbeing studio, a vineyard and permaculture gardens. Seija is a naturopathic nutritionist, a clinical herbalist, an artist and is becoming very interested in counselling. Francy is a graphic designer and a budding permaculturalist, he also enjoy building.

    We are buddhist practitioners but are open to all sorts of different well being practices. We have been taking volunteers for many years. We love meeting new people and learning new things, due to us being a home-educating family, we love open-minded people who are willing to teach our girls and us all about the world and what you may have studied. We love the cultural and skill exchange and can offer our knowledge freely but are also really interested in learning more from our volunteers. Tasks are varied, fair and interesting (we hope!). Would love to hear from you...

    Note...We only serve Vegetarian and Vegan meals and we are an alcohol and drug free property.
