  • Description


    Come join our little family at our off grid cabin! secreted away in the valley in the hills just a 45 minute train ride out of melbourne -we need help! So much space to roam and explore some beautiful bushland with kanguroos and wombats and echidnas being our only neighbours.. If you want to get back to basics this is the place for you - we are in the process of setting up a sustainible community. Step by step! At the moment we are completely off grid some solar power rain water very close to nature - we have a toilet and shower but water is heated by fire! So be OK with extra work or cold showers or when its this warm we often just bathe in the lagoon! A beautiful body of water with native birds flocking to it a canoe and kyak to play with too this place is a beautiful place to practice eco projects and there is always something engaging to do! Life has a different pace here you have time to ponder and sing and dance round the fire! We are looking ideally for couples to come as we need help in the garden and collecting wood as much as we need help babysitting and in preparing the cabin for winter! And this place is often an experience you want to share :) although were not going to discriminate agaisnt you if you are travelling solo either! we are very open mided and generally easy going people

    There's always something to do here - collecting kinderling and firewood - chainsaw use if you have experience or are keen to learn would be great! It gets pretty cold in the valley in winter and the house and other huts and outdoor spaces are all heated mostly by fire! We would ideally eat mostly from the garden and there is quite a few producing beds going but that's an area that is in need of more energy at the moment
