Work Exchange available on Alternative Organic Rural property in Byron Bay Hinterland.
I invite you to join myself and a small group of friends living together on our peaceful & tranquil land. We are abundant in fruit trees, vegetable gardens and wild life. We are increasingly becoming more self sufficient in food production and are committed to living in harmony with nature as much as we can. We work together, eat together and create beauty together each day and would like to welcome friends with skills in gardening, landcare, carpentry and general handyman skills to join us. If you don't have specific skills but are keen and enthusiastic then also please do get in touch.
In exchange for 4 hours work per day 5 days per week we offer comfortable accommodation, home cooked vegetarian meals and a peaceful, relaxing & safe environment. An ideal place to stop and be on a busy travellers schedule. Those Interested must be physically fit and healthy, content with living a simple lifestyle, using compost toilets, solar showers and open to learn and grow in yourself.
At the weekend we might go for a forrest walk, or to a local market other than that we don't tend to go out, so this opportunity is best suited to those preferring to connect with nature and leave the business of society alone for a while.
We are free from cigarettes, alcohol and any kind of drugs (including those believed to be used medicinally) and we welcome friends who can live this way as well.
We also offer yoga and meditation from time to time. If you are interested in a different type of experience than please get in touch, we would love to hear from you!
Help in the house
Our land is a tranquil place with kilometres of bush walking tracks which are amazing to explore in your free time and a creek where you might like to swim. We have found that it has been a wonderful place for travellers to rest and reconnect with themselves on their busy travelling schedule. A place to stop and feel and just be for a while. Living simply and in harmony with the natural environment gives most friends who visit a real sense of joy and inner peace.
Most of our work is out door and requires you to be physically fit.
You could be doing general gardening, weeding, mulching, raking, planting and harvesting and there is always some cleaning and cooking to be done as well.
Accommodation will be a tipee or tent - it is warm now here and we have plenty of blankets! We have out side composting toilets and solar showers. We eat communally each day using food from the land.
During your time off you could visit some of the national parks or local markets. We are 45 mins from Byron Bay and 35 mins from the nearest beach.
