    FANCY EXPLORING THE BLUE MOUNTAINS & ADDING YOUR CREATIVE TOUCH TO THIS COMMUNITY SPACE

    Explore, chill and a little bit of gardening. Cozy and welcoming home, cruisy and laid back.

    I do need your help as this property will be featured in the Blue Mountains Edible Garden Trail.

    Things have really ramped up on site and I need HELP. CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS ..

    Singles, Families, Couples and Teams of Volunteers are Welcome. The excavation is long complete and there has been huge progress. All that’s missing is YOU. You will be staying in a really cruisy home environment and from the volunteers feedback, you'll get well looked after. In your downtime, be prepared to wind down, sleep in, read, relax, play music or explore, whatever it is that lights you up.

    Thank You for connecting to this profile. I AM absolutely thrilled to have already hosted people from the WorkAway community. These volunteers have been wonderful to share space with, respectful and happy to contribute.

    About this space .. I AM Co-Creating a Creative Space for Community to Connect. This is a social enterprise and philanthropic endeavour. That means I don’t get paid for setting this up. This endeavour is to help build and support Community.

    This endeavour will primarily teach Permaculture Principles, Build Community, Host Creative Workshops and include a Pond Performance Space for Musicians, Singers, Actors, DJs, Stand-Up Comics, Poets, Story-tellers. This endeavour will be home to a densely planted Organic Food Forest which will help contribute and support Community. It will be a place to connect with the earth, feel nurtured, nourished and where one can take a breath and be still.

    If you see yourself drawn to this wonderful project, I would love to hear from you. If you have any building skills or are happy to get creative in the yard, I’d love to hear from you. ALL Help WELCOME.

    Best wishes
    Amanda
