  • Description


    We are Sharna, Nicolas, Annie and Sol.
    We are located 15 minutes from Wingham NSW, a small town in the manning valley.
    The property we are on belongs to Annie, she works full time as preschool teacher in a near by town.
    I Sharna am her daughter and currently with my partner Nicolas and 7mnth old daughter Sol we are on the property and building a mud cabin where we plan to live.
    We are nearing the finishing stages of the build but really need some extra help with a natural mud rendering and the many many little task that remain. We also work on our organic gardens in between and enjoy cooking and producing all sort of products for our family.
    Annies house on the property also often needs maintenance and general tidying so when mumma Annie needs a hand there you would be much appreciated.

  • Help


    we are working on a natural building, mostly mud but includes some work with bamboo and other materials. We need extra happy hands to get muddy and help us finish off our project. We share meals so some cooking and cleaning will be necessary, but just the daily task of the spaces we will be sharing. We have a young baby, we are not looking for a babysitter but you do need to be comfortable around young children.
