Hi, my name is Caitlin. I am living in my family home working to get the garden & house back to good condition after a period of neglect. I am a conscious dance teacher, art therapist & artist. I love time in nature & wild places, practicing calligraphy yoga/qi gong, playing guitar, singing, dancing, making things & sharing good food with friends & loved ones.
This is such a beautiful part of Australia with the mountain backdrop & the ocean so close (great surfing!), surrounded by rainforest and lots of beautiful birds but still with easy access to the big city of Sydney just over an hour away by train. Work with me in the garden and learn about local plants. I can teach you calligraphy yoga/qi gong and you can come with me to Sydney for my movement meditation classes if you wish!
I am looking for help with gardening, weeding, planting and forest restoration, whether you have skills or experience in that doesn't matter, but if you do, great! I also welcome anyone with building, construction or handy skills to help with some small building projects such as re-grouting the bathroom, fitting door handles, installing cupboard doors, hanging doors, painting. Some cleaning help would be great too, but not essential!
Your own room with single bed, a desk & a chest of drawers. I will be making space for a couple soon too with a double bed in their own room. We share the bathroom with bath & shower & seperate toilet. Breakfast will be self serve with food provided & lunch & dinner will be provided. Food will be mostly gluten-free & vegetarian with some chicken & fish if you like to eat that, and I can cater for vegan or other dietary needs too. My sister & her partner live next door & visit sometimes.
Lots to explore locally if you love walking, nature & the beach close by or further afield to all the sights & events of Sydney and not so far (30 mins) for the local arts & culture in the regional centre of Wollongong. The beach is a 15 minute walk from here, 7 minutes walk to the train, and there are shops & cafes just a 5-10 min train ride away.
