Farm: Starting a new farm based on Permaculture, Regenerative Agriculture, Organics, Biodiversity and Education.
We are a couple in our 30's with over 15 years of professional experience in Permaculture, Horticulture and Community Food and planning systems. We are in the exciting phase of setting up our regenerative farm based in Yankalilla on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
We are looking for 2 independent and enthusiastic people, to help out on our farm, with things such as tree planting, harvesting olives, irrigation, pruning, weeding, sheep care and more.
We will offer training in all of these activities and education of Permaculture and regenerative agriculture. We provide in exchange a basic large caravan (in a shed), with cooking facilities, overlooking the ocean for accommodation.
We are completely off grid, so compost toilets, solar power and rain water.
Contact us for more info. Look forward to hearing from you,
Chris and Bridgett

Its a very peaceful farm, on the Fleurieu Peninsular with lots of wildlife, including lots of Kangaroos and birds.
We will help teach you skills in natural farming methods, growing food, share food together, cooking, fun times, laughs, and enjoy life in this beautiful country. We are also willing to help with learning English and other skills.
We both come from passionate and professional environmental bases careers.
Our coastline is world renowned and only 3km away.

We are looking for 1-2 people who are keen to learn new skills, and help us grow our farm.

- Native tree planting and guarding
- Olive harvesting for Oil
- Grazing animals including friendly sheep and alpacas

We will provide a nice private and large caravan, with a lovely view of the ocean. The bed is realy comfy.
It is self contained so you can cook, use the oven, make cups of tea etc. We will provide staple foods, and cook and eat together several meals per week depending on routine.
We can help you find all the local sites around our property, people come from all over the world to see the Fleurieu Peninsula, and we are also not to far to Kangaroo Island. We are flexiable in our work, depending on projects. There is always time for fun in between fun jobs :)
We start with a two day trial, to make sure everyone gets on, if so then we can work out how long you would like to stay and work out an outline of your stay.
We are friendly people, very respectful and fairly quiet. We require days off and private time, as you will also. We are good communicators so everything can be worked out.
We look forward to hearing from you, any questions feel free to ask, happy to chat and help :)
