We are at the very beginning of an exciting new project building a sustainable, off-grid home and productive food gardens. We are looking for passionate people to assist us with this.We are learning along the way and want people to join us who don't mind a bit of hard work.

Help around the house
They will be able to explore our beautiful natural surroundings. Our home is on a multiple occupancy in sub-tropical NSW. Our closest towns are Lismore and Kyogle both 30 minutes away. We are only 1 hour from Ballina and Byron Bay; 30 minutes to Nimbin; 30 minutes to the Border Ranges National Park.
They will have the opportunity to learn about sustainable, off-grid living and building.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
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.
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.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
Very large motorhomes will find the road difficult but camper vans will be fine.
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
