  • Description


    We are a European couple living in Stanthorpe Australia, running a Permaculture project with eco-buldings, small scale organic farming, and permaculture style vegetables gardens.
    We have two self contained caravans for our guests and need help with farming and eco-building. We both teach yoga and practice meditation daily, so our guests if interested can do this together with us. We are vegetarian and passionate about cooking good food.
    Our land is situated near the Garrawin and Bold Rocks National park, also near waterfalls and beautiful walks.
    At the moment we really need someone interested in eco building, as we have a project coming shortly.

    We have 3 self contained caravans and a small room in the house during the cold season, for sleeping mainly, as most meals will be shared together in the main house. One caravan is quite big, both caravans have a double bed and a single bed and a little kitchenette for making tea or some drinks or even some meals when we are away.
