WE LIVE IN A BIODIVERSITY HOTSPOT AND WE NEED SOME HELP IN VEGETABLE GARDENS AND SOME HOME MAINTENANCE
We would love to spend this time with people with a good heart and willing to help. We live in the forest on a 968acre property adjoining World Heritage forests. In exchange I can provide you with a warm welcome, safe, comfortable accommodation, healthy food in a beautiful part of Australia. We were once open as a small retreat/workshop venue so we have several buildings for accommodation for your privacy.
We need some help in our large organic vegetable gardens and some home maintenance, cooking, painting, small repairs and maybe some simple construction and yard work, there is a variety of work. The work is not hard but a good level of fitness would be welcome. We are flexible and open when it comes to a fair and honorable work exchange. Any contribution towards achieving these goals would be helpful and much appreciated.

2. Have you been advised to self-isolate in the last 14 days?

fever, sore/scratchy throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or loss of taste?

We live 43km from the nearest town of Dorrigo, we do not go to town often at this time, it would best suit if you have your own car.
This rich biodiverse forest is home to 29 threatened species of animal and plant, we have been busy working to clean up after the bush fires and we are now focusing on taking care of maintenance around the house and our large organic vegetable gardens.
Our home is located on a magnificent forested conservation property. It adjoins World Heritage country and is surrounded by vast areas of forested land offering spectacular scenery. Wonderful hiking opportunities into some spectacular wilderness country.
Our place is not resort style but it is welcoming, comfortable and a beautiful down to earth home.
