    Description

    We live off grid in a beautiful slice of paradise and invite you to join us for a while. We are looking for someone to help out with a variety of tasks. We are surrounded by forest and a river runs through it too.

    Food prep and tidy up is shared. We will be doing lots of skill sharing and keen to talk all things sustainable housing/ off grid/ solar power/ micro hydro/ self-sufficiency.

    Rowan and Bx have worked on organic farms for years and look forward to firing up our winter garden. Rowan has been an earth builder and market garden chap.

    We have lots of forest walks and long hikes in the neighbouring Conservation land from our back gate. We have a beautiful river running through our place with cool swimming spots. We are 20 min drive from learner surf beach, 40 minutes from amazing surf beaches.
