  • Description

    Description

    We are Joana and Daniel,
    Our travels took us around the world and to many workaways, we were filled with inspiration and ideas. Now we have found a little spot for us in southern Tasmania. Its early days of our project and we have lots of ideas for the land we have 59 acres. Overall we are looking to create a landscape that is rich in biodiversity and can provide for us and our local community.
    A bit about us, we are 30&32, we like to work hard and have a lot of fun as we go. We love adventures, hiking, camping, spearfishing, diving and what else comes our way. Joana is Portuguese and Daniel from Australia, we love to be social and spend quality time with people. Always keen to learn and share knowledge.
    We both work for the same company we leave early in the morning and back in the afternoon, so we hope that you can work autonomously since we are away most of the day.
    We are committed to improving our lifestyle and habits, we are aiming to reduce our plastic usage, find healthy food alternatives and create our little piece of paradise to live in harmony with nature.
    Recently we have commenced a Permaculture Design Certificate, which is helping us understand and implement better ways of doing things, and are excited about sharing this learning process.
