    Description

    Hi!

    We live in a quiet and sweet little village in Central Victoria, approx 1.5hr from Melbourne.

    We have a 2 acre property, a recycled house, a small person, a small dog, a messy garden and many unfinished projects!

    We have completed building a passive solar earth house on the same block (for Grandma). We like travels, natural building, permaculture, podcasts, slack lining, creative pursuits, music and food.

    We are looking for happy, independent, physically fit helpers. We've hosted many happy travellers, though not yet through Workaway. Above all we are looking for the right person/people for a great exchange, so please write and share some details about yourself. Please note we can only host 1 helper or 1 couple (there is only 1 bed).

    Happy travels.
