  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple with adult children who have all left home and we live in the beautiful Yarra Valley wine region. We have 10 acres of land that we are cultivating with Truffle, setting up a vegetable garden and orchard and making furniture. We enjoy helpers visiting.

    Our comfortable home is located 7km from the local township of Yarra Glen and is surrounded by wineries and farms.

    We provide delicious home-cooked meals and are happy to help with transport when you want to visit one of the towns in the Yarra Valley.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are both in the education field and have hosted many people from other countries. There are plenty of opportunities for conversation if that is what you are looking for. The Yarra Valley is a special place for people who enjoy wine and nature. The local community is multicultural, warm and friendly. Many Europeans, Japanese and Americans travel in the area to work in the vineyards.

    Help

    You don't need special skills for these tasks but be fit and willing to work. If you do have some experience building or carpentry you would also be a great helper.

    Planting trees, hand weeding and removal of scrub using hand tools. We are raising organic truffles.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The Yarra Valley is a wine growing region that is beautiful. The surrounding area has fine bushwalking, canoeing, kayaking and camping places. The local town is well serviced. There are buses around the local area that travel to a train station (Lilydale) about 20km from Healesville. A bicycle or car is an advantage but not essential.

    Our home is very comfortable.
