We are a family of 4 living on a hobby farm in Melbourne's beautiful rural north east. Set on 20 acres with stunning views and lots to see and do nearby (eg Hurstbridge and St Andrews Market) we are looking for gardening and general maintenance help. As the horses and children keep us busy and with the warmer spring weather just around the corner the garden (and weeds) are taking off. We are looking for up to two people for a short stay (one week) to help us out.
