    Description

    Hi, we have a big sunny farmhouse on the river in a village near Lismore which is about 30 minutes to the coast, not too far from Byron Bay. It is a beautiful area and the farm is only ten minutes from town where there are cafes, music, markets, galleries and waterfalls. It is a great area. We are doing bushcare and planting koala trees along the river plus some painting indoors. There are kangaroos, koala's (if you can find them) and abundant birdlife. We hope to establish some permaculture vegetable plots. A general day starts at 8, morning tea at 10ish and then finish at 12.30. I'm happy to show you the sights or you can take off on your own adventures. You will need your own transport and good references.
    A normal work day would start at 8 or 9am, depending on your preferences, and finish four hours later with a morning tea break. That way you can spend the afternoon exploring the area.

    We would love to meet people who like being outdoors to do weeding, planting, mowing and general bush regeneration. Maybe some gardening and help repairing the stables or painting.
