Skyvalley is on the mid north coast, about an hour from Port Macquarie. I had a small permaculture farm. We were extensively burnt in last years fires. I am rebuilding, replanting, refencing and Im looking for help.
The property is stunning 400 acres surrounded by state forest. Half is still forest. There is a permanent creek and plenty of rainforest and wild life. I have horses dogs and poultry. Its quite secluded the nearest town is Wauchope 40mins.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
i guess the thing I can offer is how to do anything with limited resources. Natural building skills. Forestry. Gardening. Its hands on lateral and challenging. But its also swimming in the creek hanging out and relaxing. I try to mix it up. If you like horses and dogs....
I keep my days varied. Current projects. A natural build cob communal area. Regeneration work, mostly weeding, fencing, restablshing gardens. Horse care and occasional dog sitting. If you can drive any machinery there is earthworks and I could do with some mechanical expertise :)
Mostly the work is unskilled and a willing attitude is all thats required. I have so much to do I think there is something to fit whatever interests people bring. Im happy if you just want to take a bit of the domestic load.
8x5m tiny house. It has a kitchen toilet. I havent rebuilt the bathroom but there are fire baths everywhere. You are welcom to cook your own food. I will supply meals if that is prefered.
Lots of nature out here. Port Macquarie has beaches. Both Port and Wauchope have the usual bars and cafes. Best op shops ever. Im happy for you to ride the horses and enjoy the property.
I have a fairly relaxed pace so I mix up my day between working and swimming. I dont have any timetables or expectations around hours. I tend to work seasonally so this time of year is mornings and evenings I am an artist but I havent got back into that post fire. Its been a long haul.
