  • Description


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

    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 and have rain 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,and bees [so anyone who can help with them welcome]

    I have moved just across the road and now have two properties to look after so am looking for lots of helpers, especially to help with the vegetable gardens now we have had some rain.

    No smokers please, that includes vaping [I am sorry]

    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.

    I am taking singles or couples and have plenty of room if you have a van or camper. Everyone welcome.
    Hoping to hear from lots of interesting people soon.
    At the moment I am processing Bunya nuts which are a local bush food. They are abundant every 3 years so I am trying to get as many ready for making pesto, hommus, flour and just shelling the nuts and getting them into the freezer for the next couple of years supply.
    I am also looking for people who can help me get my property for sale as I can no longer manage it.
    Looking forward to hearing from people who are keen to learn new skills.
