  • Description

    Description

    We are a married couple in our early 60's with 3 adult children who do not live with us. We live on a 30 hectare property with panoramic views of the coastline on the south coast of NSW. We live in a recently-constructed rammed earth house which was featured recently on an episode of Grand Designs Australia. The property is predominantly rainforest with about 4 hectares which are cleared pastures. We supply all of our own electricity, heating and water and try to grow as much of our own vegetables as possible.
    We have a range of jobs from construction work, weeding, tending to chickens and vegetables, tree chopping, mowing, beekeeping etc.
    We need help with day to day activities around the property.
    We are a 20 minute drive to several surf beaches and can arrange transport for Workaways.

    Help

    We need help to keep the weeds at bay in the paddocks. We would like to construct some walking trails in the rainforest. We have continual chores in our established vegetable garden. We need to tend to our chickens daily. We will need to construct fencing. There is quite a bit of physical labour required at present as we are constructing some rock retaining walls. We are currently building a barn.
