    Description

    My wife (Amber) and I have a beautiful home in Goonellabah which is 30 mins from the coast, 40 mins from Byron Bay and only 5 mins from Lismore. with stunning views across the valley. I am a teacher, my wife is a horticulturalist and we are both musicians.

    We are looking for someone to stay 2 - 4 weeks with a possibility of extension for the right person.

    You will be sharing the large house with just me (Chris) and my wife, Amber.


    The work will include gardening tasks such as weeding, establishing an organic vegetable garden and basic fencing (tying chicken wire). Previous experience gardening is desired but not essential, furthermore, any handyman skills are greatly appreciate as we are currently replacing some of the timber cladding on the outside of our house.
