We are a project that cultivates alternative and 'soulstainable' activities.
We are just starting, so a very interesting time to be part of.
In one of my gipsy moves, I came to Sunshine Coast Hinterland and fell in love...
Said good bye many times and kept coming back .. why wouldn't I?
We are nested amongst organic farmers, music & food festivals, cooperatives, amazing wild life, swimming holes, in a valley, 20 minutes to Maleny and another extra 20 minutes to the beach...
Just got a piece of land in an ecovillage and I am keen to transform it into a collective space for travellers & seekers.
The project is in early stages, so we need help on building, fixing up things, renovation, gardening, art projects, cleaning, weeding, cooking... plenty of options! :) it is a combination on what are your interest/ want to learn + skills + what needs to be done and the weather!!
You will make the most of this area if you come with your own transport.
However, I am happy to pick you up from Maleny town or Landsborough or Beerwah train station.
NO SMOKERS of any kind and regular alcohol drinkers - no exception.
NO SPECIAL DIETS - we ate most from the garden and local produce. If you have a special diet, you can shop for yourself, but we won't buy become your 'mummy'.
And dogs/ cats are not allowed at the Ecovillage.
Please, bring your willingness to learn, share, laugh, play, interact and so on.
Jobs can be adaptable to what you love doing it and change all the time, but some skills needed are:
- creation of pedal power appliances, such as a pedal powered washing machine
- general gardening maintenance
- organising/ cleaning/ creating a relax/ community space
- up cycling - creating things from nothing or 'rubbish'
- brush cutting
- etc etc - you tell me what you can/ want do too!!
Besides of the place at the Ecovillage, I am also involved in a farm focused on regenerative agriculture towards a landtrust for young farmers ... so, now and then we travel there too! :)

- learn to live simple,
