    SMALL ORGANIC PERMACULTURE FARM

    1 month minimum stay preferred, shorter stays by negotiation

    About us: the Farm is a vibrant co-operative permaculture farm, with an heirloom seedlings nursery, and an events space focusing on yoga, dance, crafts, permaculture education and wellbeing. We are in a beautiful location and have a pristine lake for swimming in the property.

    We have 3 goats, lots of chickens, a food forest and fruit orchards.

    We would love help with food growing, harvesting, and cooking, cleaning, and other farm jobs. You will learn many new skills and make new friends.
