    Hello,
    I am Ben, i have 4 great kids aged 10-15 (3 girls and a boy) we live on a community in Northern NSW. We are offgid and surrounded by rainforest. We are a vegan household, and have 2 dogs and a duck. I work 4-5 days a week doing forest restoration and need a hand with getting the kids to and from the bus stop, 1.5 hr house work and cooking dinner 4-5 nights. You have a room with a double bed. We have solar power, veg gardens, we have a family car that is provided so you will need to have license or equivellent. We are needing a helper often and prefer stays of at least a month. We live near Nimbin (10MINS) in the Byron hinterland. 1hr to Byron bay, 2 hrs to Brisbane. Nimbin is great little town, has organic co op, permaculture centre, galleries, cafes, also waterholes and forest walks. Our home is a shed home, open plan, fire place, we have a music area for jamming if you are musically inclined. I play irish fiddle. We hope to hear from you:-)
    Cheers
    Ben
