  • Description


    We are setting up a permaculture homestead in Stanthorpe, Queensland and encourage people to come and learn with us. Exchange your work for accommodation and excellent food. Wifi use too. Tasks could include digging, cutting wood, weeding, clearing firebreaks, moving rocks, building walls, transplanting, painting, mulching, preserving, planting food and whatever else we are doing.. If you want to learn about or are interested in Permaculture, this is the place to come!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We often take helpers to other Permaculture related events (that's our social life mostly) and to National Parks for a walk and swim. You can borrow a bicycle to go to town as it is only 4km. We will pick you up from the bus stop. Crisps buses and New England Coaches service Stanthorpe.

    Please give us a day to reply before requesting to others - there is no point us replying and you reply back to say someone else replied first! This is NOT people care... as it wastes our time. If you have a fully complete profile preferably with a good reference, and you write us a decent request, there is no reason for us to say 'no thanks' - we are usually able to fit in anyone who is offering great help.
