I need help with building and gardening and log cutting and making a natural children's playground. We provide meals, good accommodation, a private bedroom, bathroom in return for four hours help.
The property is a large 4.5-acre property that we plan to set up as a sustainable community. We have converted a large swimming pool into an aquaculture pond where we grow water plants and farm Rainbow trout, also free-range hens, vegetable gardens, worm farms, composting, etc. We would welcome a hand in the garden and house and can teach fish-farming, etc. We have a nice house, good beds, good food, a log fire.
We need positive, self-motivated helpers who can work well on their own.

Help around the house
We are pioneers in this area - we were born here and are the oldest inhabitants - we have many interesting stories about sea rescues and marine life. We care about the environment and are happy to teach skills in caring for plants, the ocean, travel in Australia, and places to see on the West coast.
In Wanneroo, I have turned my swimming pool into an aquaculture pond, have free-range hens, and a beautiful garden.
At Wanneroo, I can teach you how to turn a swimming pool into an aquaculture pond, growing fish and edible plants, tend a worm farm, prune, and garden. I have an extensive library of handyman magazines and a great collection of gardening books, (and books on most topics - I sell books online so I could teach you about book collecting if you are interested.
Gardening, tending vegetables, weeding, raking, composting, planting, changing the filter to the fish pool, burning dead branches, collecting firewood, house cleaning, cooking and helping construct a nature playground with logs and found objects.. (being able to use a small chainsaw and handyman skills would be helpful)
Your own lockable room with double bed, linen, and towels. All rooms have a garden view and are clean and fresh. Accommodation is well above average.
At Wanneroo, there are some nice walks (eg around Lake Joondalup) we are half an hour from Yanchep National Park and 2 hours drive to Moor River and the Pinnacles with some great photo opportunities.
If you don't have transport you can catch a train to Edgewater and I can pick you up from the station or a bus comes directly to Wanneroo.

Can host families
This host has indicated that they love having digital nomads stay.
Plenty of secure space for all size vans - of course, voluntary hours would be reduced and are negotiable depending on food and power consumption.
It is a large, well-fenced property.
