  • Description


    We recently moved to a little village called Bolwarra in the pretty Hunter Valley area of NSW. The closest main town is Maitland. We are living in a home overlooking green pastoral lands with grazing cattle and big skies. We like to turn our home into a friendly eco living space - always growing. We love to have adventures in the outdoors and meet lovely caring beings.

    We are a quiet and gentle family of a German Scientist 42, Aussie Teacher 35 a 3 year old and 4 months old happy baby girl...
    And our little white ball of enthusiasm, dog Jasmine who is getting on well with our chooks.

    We are looking for gentle respectful and practical people to help us move in to our new home. We wish to paint walls, and make some small changes that will add additional rooms looking out to the garden.

    Laugh and look after our 2 year old and join in her sweet games.

    Later we will look to add an awesome vegie patch, chooks and a few fruit trees.

    Volunteers will work out a weekly schedual that will suit their travel, study, work commitments.
    20 hours per week for accom and food. (35 hours per couple)

    Both rooms will have a comfy bed, large window, desk and storage. It is a share bathroom and kitchen with 2 comfy living rooms looking out to either the front garden or the back farmlands..

    There is a bus that brings one into the near by township of Maitland, and bike trails along side the road.

    What else ...

    The hunter valley is pretty, serene and picturesque. It is a popular area for horse riding lessons. There are great national forests a close drive away not to mention Newcastle and the stunning central coast 1-2 hours east.
    We have bikes that volunteers are welcome to borrow and explore the local area.

    We have enjoyed meeting and hosting work exchange volunteers for the last 2 years and shared several homes together across Melbourne and Perth over the last 10 years.
