    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be inspired (by my parents who need the help) who are super funny, loving, generous, dedicated, creative hard workers who have a very successful business and have bitten off more than they can chew ;) (I am their daughter insisting they need extra hands as they have a beautiful property just 2km from the centre of town, with comfortable accommodation provided.
    1/11/2020...An organic vege garden tended to by a Thai lady who also lives on the property provides continual fresh veges, and is capable of feeding many visitors.
    You will love them I'm sure as everyone is drawn to their energy :)
    They have hosted all kinds of people for many years (they used to pick up backpackers and bring them home for dinner just 'because' they love meeting new people) & have received help in exchange on the various projects they have had.
    They run a very successful business & employ 8 staff in their current business which is just out of the town Murwillumbah & are in amongst it everyday getting their hands dirty.
