  • Description


    We are a family of 5 living in the beautiful inland city of Ballarat. I am requiring some help around the house in the garden mowing lawns, weeding and with the kids after school activities. , We also have several farms which we work between one of which is a christmas tree farm and foliage and flowers these also require mowing and weeding.
    We don't have any animals on the farms except for our family dog an Italian maremma Rosetta. Our children have travelled to Italy and France with us and love meeting new people and learning about the world. The love dancing, netball and football. If you speak another language that would be great as they'd love to learn some and they all learn Japanese at school. If you are a dance that would be great as you can teach them some dance moves.
