  • Description


    We are a young family renovating our new home and shaping our land on 120 acres, 5 minutes from Byron Bay. My husband is a builder and would like a skilled labourer/carpenter to help out. We also need to establish gardens to grow our own veggies and herbs and create a diverse ecosystem that will provide food most of the year.

    We are passionate about nature, both helping it and enjoying it. Let us know what skills you can offer, we are always happy to work together to help each other out.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We always aim to communicate well and exchange building, carpentry and food knowledge. People can experience the amazing Byron Bay lifestyle and culture too. I do yoga every day and regularly play in the circus space nearby.

    There are plenty of other local adventure sports like skydiving and surfing within a 5 or 10 minute drive. We aim to provide a fun social environment and are happy to always work together so we can all enjoy our time and space together.

  • Help


    The help needed here is varied, the home is being completely renovated so any skilled trades are a plus. There is plenty of help needed in the vegetable gardens and trees but also many construction, landscaping and more creative projects.

    Tasks could include:-
    - House renovations
    - Painting and decorating
    - Weeding and clearing land
    - Chopping and gathering firewood
    - Planting vegetables and baby trees.
    - Assisting with carpentry projects
    - Landscaping

    We are always interested in people with skills in building, plumbing, gas, electrics and agriculture, but we welcome people of all abilities.
