I am retired and live in a cosy timber cottage on 1.5 acres in a quiet, peaceful forested area, halfway between Bellingen & Coffs Harbour, 3 kms from surf beach & the Bellinger River. Nearby activities include bushwalking, horse riding, golf, bowls, rowing, sailing, snorkelling, diving. Many native birds & animals visit here.
You will certainly learn about the natural Australian environment including rainforest species, flora and fauna. You will see many colourful Australian birds, some of which are quite tame. I have previously worked as an English language teacher so can help you out there.
I need help with organic gardening, yard clearing, firewood collecting, and there's inside work if it rains. I'm also doing maintenance on my timber home so any help with landscaping, painting and carpentry would be appreciated..
