    Description

    We are Needing help on our beautiful farm nestled in Serpentine & Jarrahdale. We have beautiful serpentine falls and hiking on our door step. We are about 60 mins from Perth and there is a train that goes past 2 times a day and some buses from local town centre.

    We have a healing & yoga centre set up on 165 acre farm where we run sheep and have horses.
    We are a family of 5.
    Our two boys are 5 and 7 years olds. Our daughter is 1 year old.

    My sister and her husband live next door and we all work together on the farm.

    We are looking for someone who can give help being an extra pair of hands with the kids and some help around the house (light house work duties such cleaning, folding laundry,cooking if these are in your skill set,

    We also need help weeding, gardening, caring for animals ( feeding, cleaning enclosures), cleaning house and garden, cooking meals.

    We provide a separate granny flat / caravan with own room, bathroom, small kitchen.

    Tasks will vary day to day. Help is mainly needed Monday to Friday.

    We have lots of animals - dogs, 2 cats, chickens, sheep, alpacas and lots horses, you must like animals, if you come to stay.

    Prior experience on a farm is ideal but not essential and any interest or experience in biodynamic or organic principles will be very welcomed too. Always hoping to share and learn new things.

    The farm is NON smoking location and vegetarian meals mainly. Some meat options are available.

    We are open minded to everyone so the house is GLTB friendly.

    We speak english and spanish here too but all languages are welcome, but an intermediate level of english is required. :)

    We want helpers that can stay a MINIMUM of 1 week - longer stays are negotiable after the first week. :)

    You must like children and have experience with young children. (references are a plus).

    We offer free in-house accommodation & meals for your assistance (normally in exchange for 4-5 hours a day).
