  • Description


    Hello. We are Hannah, Alan, & baby Jarrah.

    We would love to have some extra energy about over these uncertain times as we enter into shorter, cooler days. It’s pretty magic out here in the sticks, living off-grid in a handmade home, where we dream the big dreams. In our isolation we are finishing off an earthen extension, getting the garlic in, preparing winter wood stores, nurturing immune systems, & HOPEFULLY getting chickens!

    Each week is themed around a project, & the weather determines weather we dig, chop, plant, build, design, tidy, cook, bottle & brew
    Especially handy/ special skills, of interest to you or us would be - earthen building, vegetable oil car workshop, carpentry, concreting, cooking, paving, gardening/landscaping, track making.

    We love good wholesome food, & eat a healthy veg diet, carnivores welcome to cook outside on the bbq.

    Situated on a huge bush block, 10 minute drive from Wynyard town, get in touch if this sounds like you..

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We like to get to the bottom of things here. It's a bit of a theme, maybe making beer from barley, making bricks from the mud at the backdoor, milling timber from the forest & so on and so forth. We're social self sufficiency nerds but stop short of dogma (we hope!). We love to learn & share knowledge & skills through practise. Our skills range through from scratch food prep, amateur mechanics, bush & earthen building, vegetable gardening. We'd love to know more about all these things too!

    - tidying & arranging the yard

  • Accommodation


    We're in a mudbrick house and accompanying it is a little mud brick housel for you. It is standalone with a clear roof for star gazing and moon baking. Over time we will add amenities to the housel, but for now everything is at the main house close by. Here we will share the kitchen. Food is provided, but dinner only catered with breakfast & lunch flexible.

    What else ...

    During this Covid period, we have 90 acres of magical forest with some walking tracks. We're building more each week and will definitely be part of our weekly jobs. We also have push bikes which can be borrowed for exercising if you're keen to get out for a bit & a lovely dog which can be walked. Soooo much more to do when Covid passes but for now we're able to offer space and bikes!
