I am a stargazer whom look at the night sky under the natural dome of the West Australian night sky - the business is currently closed due to personal circumstances also have 6 acres of gardens where visitors can come and bring a picnic sit and relax - even before stargazing thorough our telescopes- which i set up and set down of an evening. I relocated to my property in Oct 2015 - where the sky is brilliantly dark but not far from Perth about 1.5 hrs drive - or 1 hour by Train to Toodyay( Avon Link - from Perth - Midland - Toodyay) which is about 17 km away from me and where I locally shop.
I am after anyone who is interested in Astronomy or the Universe in all its aspects both physically and spiritually and mostly what is needed is in the garden its quite large 6 acres and odd jobs. There maybe some heavy lifting involved but not all the time...
Someone who may have some gardening experience or building experience would be most welcome, I need you to think for your self.
I have accommodation and are also Hosts on other sites too.
Look forward to you visiting me soon :-) .
I can also speak little German / Swiss ( Swinglish).
