  • Description


    We are out of the city and live our bush property! My partner and I have a young son
    And would be open to a Spanish speaking work away person to share food and culture and life with us for a few weeks. I am speaking only Spanish with our son, though it is my second language- as I have a lot of friends and family who speak Spanish as
    Their first language or confidently.
    We share land with a friend. we have a hobby vegetable patch and want to plant more local species also. We have simple things I’d like help with at home and in and around my studio. I’m a composer and musician and lead people in the community in meditative and exploratory projects also. I’d like help with any/or some of my websites maybe, basic house stuff and creating a more home-like feel, cooking, cleaning, Henry hanging out etc.
    We live in Newham, macedon ranges, one hour from Melbourne (more by train). We can pick you up from the station. If you have your own transport- that’s wonderful, but we do leave the property at least once a day I’d say so can do ocassional drop offs in town for shops etc And would be open to negotiating some touristy drop offs locally.
