    In the beginning the jobs will be helping to prepare the site - e.g. landcare, weeding, mapping out house and garden areas. We are learning along the way and want people to join us who don't mind a bit of hard work.

    Please get in touch if this sounds like something you would like to be involved in. We would especially like to hear from people with skills in areas like landcare, permaculture, horticulture, building, architecture or any other trades.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Ideally we would like you to stay for 1 week. If we work well together and you are enjoying your stay we can discuss extending the stay. In return for food and accommodation we would like you to work 3-4 hours a day during the week and then you can go and explore our beautiful region on weekends. You will be staying in our guest accommodation which has wireless internet, a small fridge and gas stove. You will have access to our garden for fresh vegetables and chickens for eggs. We will provide food for you to make your own breakfast and snacks and we can be flexible sharing lunch and dinners. You would benefit from having your own car, however we can pick people up from our closest town.
