  • Description


    I am developing my home into a wholistic sustainable lifestyle earthship in the world's first permaculture village with 2 United Nations Awards.

    We have the fastest internet in Australia. I am after self-motivated happy fit helpers for cleaning, gardening, building and all sorts of amazing projects and adventures.

    All projects on the property are not for profit . I invest my time, money and resources in creating more sustainable futures worth living into.

    I have 25 years of experience in natural health and Sustainable Life Style development.
    I am passionate about connecting people to like minds who wish to live into the paradigm shift one breath at a time.

    I am a musical instrument maker and developer of the Slide Didge.

    I love any excuse to get out into exploring nature.

    Strictly Non-Drinking Non-Smoking Drug-Free Environment. Sport, Yoga Mountain Biking Fitness, rock climbing bush walking, creeking, kayaking, waterfalls wildlife is our drug.

    We are located in the sunshine coast hinterland, 150 meters from the upper mary river. Sharing 640 acres of common land with a community of 250 people strong with a village market, bakery, great parties, farming, bamboo forest 17 dams walking tracks, music night in Maleny and much more.

    This is paradise but we are not a permaculture utopia where you get a course in permaculture gardening.

    I am looking for open-minded, easy-going, hardworking self-initiated paradigm shifters who weave goodness into a future worth living. Share the Love.

    I have a property on the Gold coast and also help manage my father's acreage in Brisbane workaways often come along to help out and enjoy these environments too.
    Hope to have some good adventures.
    The place has attracted many beautiful people with much to share. If you have read this far your probably one of them 🤣🤣😍😍

    Fastest internet in Australia. But Like everywhere sometimes the connection fails. However expect 1gb uploads and down loads on fiber connection 12gbn -200 gb on wifi connection depending on distance from wifi box. Please note that if you intend to work or study you need to be very well organised to do workaway with me so as to fit in effective hours. After the first two weeks of workaway hours is more appropriate time frame to manage studies or work as you will be more efficient in simply knowing tasks location of stuff and my general go with flow attitude according to weather, events and subsrquent changing priorities.
