Hello! We are a family on a 10 acre forest with some cleared land for gardens and fruit trees in the hinterland of Byron bay. Only a 20 minute drive to beaches in either direction of Brunswick to Lennox head. We have Bush regeneration that currently is happening as well as veggie gardens and fruit trees to maintain and nourish. We often do yoga, Qigung and meditation so joining in would be a pleasure. Simon is a well traveled international yoga teacher so when he is here learning with him is an absolute gift. Otherwise I, too have some years of experience and knowledge to share which I thoroughly enjoy. The climate here is very pleasant. Warm with bouts of rain give it a tropical feel. We have a large inground pool which is heated and colloidal filtered making it a very nice swim.. There is some wildlife around if your lucky to spot them but most of all there is a bird song which is a delight and quite unique as they don't do this everywhere.

I am a vegetarian wholefoods cooking coach.. you could learn easy and healthy food prep from me as well as yoga, Chi gung and meditation.. this place is a tropical retreat and you would feel enlivened and refreshed from having stayed here.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Main duties will be organic garden care and looking after fruit trees. Some harvesting of bananas and papaya and black sapote would be done occasionally also. The hours are there usual 5 hours a day with breaks for morning tea and lunch. I love cooking and always make healthy meals based on vegetarian wholefoods organic wherever possible.
The accommodation is your own private space of a well kept caravan with shade and shower facilities. I equip you with breakfast at the caravan... dinner time we all come together for a home cooked meal. Or on occasions you will be supplied with ready cooked food to have in your own space. You have access to the internet here and occasionally we watch a movie. It's absolutely gorgeous out here and the energy of the pine trees ensure earthing everytime : )
I frequently go in to town so it's possible to get a ride with me if you don't have a car. There are beautiful bush walks in the area, beaches, and the general tourist attractions in Byron bay with scuba diving. We are looking forward to hosting some lovely people and offering our best of what we have here. We love experiencing all the different cultural backgrounds that have come so far and we hope we can exchange a lovely experience together. Please note that you will have accommodation in whichever space is available at the time. So depending on which caravan you get based on the pictures but try not to have an expectation.. one caravan is small and the other is larger.
