    Description

    I am taking people again since the borders are opening.
    I am in the process of leaving my 7 acres as I have had an injury and cannot work it anymore.

    I am moving and renting my property to someone else so I need to get it ready. There is lots of gardening and compost making plus a general good clean up again. Most of the hard work has been done but need some help to tidy up the veg gardens so they are ready for the new people to grow the food they want.

    I am just moving 500 meters away to a small plot I can manage once it is set up

    I live on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland just 40 minutes to the beach.

    I am vegetarian [ can cater for vegan but not raw foodies as it is too expensive for me]] and everyone enjoys my food. My property is a smoking, drinking and drug free zone. I live a very simple sustainable lifestyle, have rain water and heat my hot water with the sun. Also have a compost toilet and solar panels on my roof. Healthy home cooked food, mostly organic but certainly spray free and home grown or locally grown. Large interesting library and educational DVD's. I have goats, chooks, geese and bees [so anyone who can help with them welcome] and a little 'lap' dog.

    Ideally i would like a couple as I have a double spare room but have lots of space so anyone with their own camper welcome.

    No smokers please.

    I would like someone as soon as possible as I would like to move before christmas.

    Lots to learn, I practice Permaculture and biodynamics and sustainability. No chemicals used on property. I am setting up new gardens and would like to build some wicking beds because of our dry climate.
