    Description

    We are a busy family of 4 (mum & 3 teen kids) living on a beautiful rural property on the far south coast of NSW. Mum works online from home office and the kids have jobs, school and activities in the neighboring town. Our property is approximately 120 acres of bush and looks out to the ocean and into the Mimosa Rock national park. We have a lot of native animals - kangaroos, wombats, echidna, diamond pythons etc and also some family pets and farm like animals. Dogs, horse, chooks and ducks. We have vegetarians in our house but eat a variety of foods and try to grow some food also. We like to go to the beach, swim, surf, play music and eat. We are an open hearted, friendly and environmentally aware Australian family.

    Sometimes we just want help with cooking each other dinner or vacuuming the house but other times there is a project on the go that needs practical help, for example building a garden enclosure, fencing or painting.
