  • Description


    I live a quiet life, but am always happy to show people my town as I migrated here from the UK 18 years ago. I moved here to start a market garden and need some help setting it up. I am also setting up an ornamental garden and have ducks and chickens. Lots to learn and do, but also happy for you to have time to explore the area.

    The town I live in is a Booktown and the first gold town in Victoria. There is lots of history and it is in beautiful countryside.

  • Help


    I live on a small property with an extensive garden. I need help developing the garden and setting up my market garden which is nearby. There is also an opportunity to help in town at the Open House meal once a week. Mostly gardening and cooking. Help keeping the house clean would be great too.
