  • Description



    Great to ' meet you.' I'm Emily!

    I live with my partner, in a lovely sunny, plant filled, seaside home where I have the goal to create a little nature paradise filled with native plants, veges and eventually chooks & bees! ( Currently have a way to go!! )

    My house is filled with plants and a big verandah where I spend most of my time sitting outside sipping tea, working on my business and writing in the sun. I am a Virgo ( clean and organised ) and really value people who are respectful of other's spaces. I live a healthy lifestyle full of healthy foods, walks along the beach, creative projects, yoga, meditation and have beautiful hearted friends who often visit for a cuppa. I love my alone time to recharge and also love sharing in meaningful conversations and shared experiences.

    I've been pottering away in my garden landscaping, bringing my knowledge of growing up on a Wildflower farm to a more suburban life, planting native flora, herbs and veges! Passionate about sustainable, eco friendly living, permaculture, growing things, creating, making beautiful spaces. I'd love help to work alongside me in building projects, eco friendly gardening projects, art projects to create beautiful and unique spaces and even a business mind could be excellent!!

    I will look forward to hearing all about your travels and learning about your own stories.

    Thank you so much in advance!

    Emily :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living so close to and spending time by the Indian Ocean is a real blessing. I have spent many years working with Indigenous communities and have lived many experiences of which I love to share my knowledge and stories. I have travelled around many places in Australia and am passionate about the environment, Indigenous cultures and humanitarian work. I would love to help teach English too if needed :)
