We are a family of three, expecting number four at the end of September. Peregrine (Perry) is 2 1/2 years old and is very chatty and friendly. We live on an intentional community, off grid, not far from Nimbin in the rainforest that backs on to the Night Cap National Park.

Anna is a Naturopath who is passionate about whole food nutrition, organic produce, herbal medicine and homeopathy. She is also passionate about keeping fit and having fun through circus skills (although having a break during this pregnancy) especially trapeze, stilts and acrobalance and also loves yoga. Our local community hall has tumbling mats and circus apparatus and there is often classes on offer by other skilled teachers in the community.
Nick is an Architect who works from home who specialises in Urban Design. He is a creative individual with a background in ceramics but focuses his creativity on projects for and within the house.
We are still building our home and have projects with plastering, painting and finishing details. We have some flitches leftover from milling some local wood for our house frame that we would like to use for trimming round windows and architraves.
Our garden is an ongoing project with landscaping and keeping the forest back that we would like some help with. It is a regeneration project really, restoring bushland from reclaimed paddocks and removing weeds. We also aim to get better at producing food.
Playing with Perry to free us up to get into these projects ourselves is also useful as well as contributing to the cooking and running of the household.

You will be accommodated in the wooden A-frame bedroom of the stone cottage which was the original building on our site which we call 'The Hobbit House'. It was built by a biker in the 80's. It now accommodates our kitchen in the downstairs stone section with the bedroom upstairs, separate from the main house.
On days off there are bush walks to explore in the nearby national park as well as the iconic village of Nimbin. We like to get to the coast when we can, often heading over to Brunswick Heads, Mullumbimby, Byron Bay or Ballina.
