  • Description


    My name is Andrew and my 12 year old son and I own an 11 acre farm on the coast. We both love travelling and have travelled through Asia and Australia together. Our farm is and will be continually developed into a sustainable farm where we have an orchard, veggie gardens (to many to handle with two of us) and animals and bee hives!(15 in total!). We live off the grid and would love to have people come and stay and share there knowledge and help around our property. In return we can cook together and harvest our own home grown veggies and also gain knowledge of other cultures through having people stay with us. I believe this will be benifical to my son for his understanding of different cultures and religions and beliefs hearing it from individual travellers and not just text books at school!

    On occasion I would need help with care of my son after school if I am late home from work. He is self suffice t and can cook and clean.
