  • Help

    Help

    The help is about 20hrs a week. Usually 5 hrs a day, 4 days a week, so there's 3 full days off each week. Or, if you want more full days off , you can work three 7ish hr days & have the rest of the week for other adventures.

    Mostly we need help with cleaning & gardening projects: weeding, planting, mulching, looking after the vegie garden & for those that can handle machines: ride on mowing & whippersnipping.

    We are particularly keen to have people with: building, carpentry, plumbing, bricklaying, tiling, electrical, sewing, IT, audio & video skills, as we have many projects on the go.

    We also do audio visual installations @ events on the weekends & often need help setting up & operating sound systems, lights & video projects.

    ACCOMMODATION
    Accommodation is in your own self-contained lodge with communal kitchen & living areas & various private sleeping options in renovated trucks & caravans. There are no bunk beds, we have 5 queen beds. We have a 2 week minimum stay policy, but prefer people who are up for staying a month or more . Most people don't want to leave & end up staying a few months.

    FOOD
    The kitchen has all you need to cook your own meals.

    We supply vegetarian food: various pastas, rice, beans, sauces, fruits, vegetables, cereals, bread, butter, milk, cheese, biscuits, condiments, etc

    Depending on what season you visit, there will be different fruits & vegies available in the garden.

    Some people also buy their own meat & other things that they're into to add to what we provide, but you can easily live well off what's in the kitchen & garden.
