    Description

    We are Federica and Louise, we are neighbours and share a wonderful land where we are constantly working in order to create veggie gardens. We used to have many people working as a community but now there is only the two of us and we definitely need some extra help to keep up with all the work!

    Federica is a photographer and Louise is a herbalist, both share the love for nature and sustainability.

    The land is just a 15 min drive from the beautiful Byron Bay's beaches, 2 minutes drive from the shops, 15 min from Ballina.

    We are looking for someone to come and stay with us for about week, enjoying the peace of nature, plenty of space to walk, a little creek, wonderful views and sunsets right on the hill in exchange of few hours of work in the garden.

    No experience needed but we are looking for motivated and active people! :)

    We have 3 deals:
    - Park your van + use our bathrooms + no food included = 2h work / day
    - Park your van + use our bathrooms + 2 meals included = 4h work / day
    - Sleep in our caravan + use our bathrooms + 2 meals included = up to 5h work / day

    Work hours will be flexible as you are more comfortable! :)
    We can accommodate dietary requirements.
