    Hi Hi!

    We look forward to welcoming you! We need your help to create our organic farm, we are starting from scratch, so we need help with everything! From organic gardening, to building, to looking after our beautiful pet lambs, to helping out at our retreats, cooking for our great community of volunteers, and of course there is always the cleaning! Social media and computer skill are super welcome also!

    If you are happy, enthusiastic, hardworking and self motivated- we are too and you will be warmly welcome!

    We live between Bali and Margaret River. We enjoy yoga, hiking camping, great food, great conversations, mountains and the forests. We are just setting up this account, but Taryn lived between New Zealand and Patagonia for the last 10 years where she created Fruit Vans and a travellers community and Earthship Patagonia and received 100’s of volunteers in the community over the last decade :) So if you need reviews look there :) We are excited to welcome you to our latest venture near Margaret River!


    *** We are looking for 2-3 volunteers with following experience / skills :)

    - admin, social media, marketing, advertising, design, video/photography
    - carpentry
    - plumbing
    - permaculture / organic farming
    - cleaning / cooking
    - must be happy to help in field of expertise, and also happy to help anywhere help is needed :-)

    We have an off grid barn / shed which we are converting into our home, 37 acres, 30 minutes south of Margaret River, close to Augusta in Western Australia.

    We are off grid, we have a small solar electricity installation and a generator.

    We are looking for people who enjoy the helping and who can help us with our projects - from gardening, to building, to cleaning, to marketing and social media !

    Property is private with beautiful views and 6 km from Hamelin Bay (a beautiful beautiful beach!) and Boronup forest. A simply magical place.

    We look forward to meeting you! Brett and Taryn

    Accommodation

    It would be great if you have your own van or tent to sleep in! Otherwise we can provide beautiful tents At our guesthouse or shared bedrooms (if available) :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We can pick you up from Margaret River or Augusta if you dont have a car - but you will need you own car to travel around and enjoy the area on your time off, as we are on a farm property. A bicycle is also great if you have one as we have beautiful beaches about a 20 minute ride form our property, we have forest and bush walks starting directly from our property. We have 2 beautiful cats who love cuddles, a dog who really loves cuddles and 39 chickens! :)

    Can host digital nomads

    We are digital nomads ourselves and work on many projects, so love to have others who do the same thing around. Our space is an amazing combination of a sanctuary and a lovely communial space - so super peaceful and nice to work in, and lots of lovely people around for great conversations in time off. Our internet connection is limited, so what most other digital nomads at our property do (there are a few of us) is to have a ‘dongle’ a plug in device (can be easily bought from Telstra or vodaphone) that gives your own internet access. This works well. Look forward to hosting and sharing with you!

    Space for parking camper vans

    Yes, we have lots of parking, if you are able to stay in your camper van that is a big bonus, and there is more of a chance we can host you, as often our rooms are full :)
