  • Description


    I am a busy naturopath, love my garden but can't quite cope with the workload.
    I live in an intentional community on the ocean with a beautiful beach and surrounded by national park which is situated on the mid north coast between Bellingen and Coffs Harbour. We are around 200 people living in this community and are trying to be self sufficient. We are having our own water and using only solar power. We are having a weekly cafe and there are lots of activities from sports, dance music to meet people.
    People staying with me are usually benefiting health wise as I provide a very healthy and organic diet.
    Non-smoker only, please or at least willing to give up.
