  • Description

    Description

    We live on a 20 acre farm 5km out of Clunes, an hour and half west of Melbourne. We are establishing edible forest gardens and medicinal labyrinth and organic veggie gardens. You will be coming to a warm family with three engaging children. You will be sharing our house and family life but sleeping in a cosy caravan with great views and space of your own. We are looking for voluntary works during the Spring (August - December) to help with various projects on the farm. The next month we are mainly planting out the edible food forest and medicinal labyrinth. We are also finishing rennovations with recycled materials on some little sheds for accomodation. We need to build a tree propagation nursery and start on a berry enclosure. We also work in the local garden at the primary school, teaching children about nature. Lots of outdoor farm work. Looking for enthusiastic people who enjoy children.
