    SMALL ORGANIC PERMACULTURE FARM

    1 month minimum stay is our preference

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️We are currently seeking helpers to help us build new helper accommodation using natural environmental building techniques so an interest in this would be great, but also need help with general gardening tasks, a weekly harvest of our veggies and with general care of our animals.

    Our small organic permaculture farm would love your contribution assisting with planting/propagating, looking after animals and helping build infrastructure based on sustainable and recycling principles.
    We regularly host seasonal community events where helpers contributions are always appreciated.

    Some meals are self catered and others are shared with families.

    This is winter season here, so be prepared with the cold with having appropriating clothing.
