    Description

    UPDATE - Looking for a builder/carpenter/ plumber or handyperson to complete our outdoor timber patio and creative garden space.

    I am a social entrepreneur who has expanded my lovely 2 story house (plus outdoor tiny room made from recycled materials) into a great co-sharing space to accommodate an ongoing community of 3-5 workaways living here most of the time.

    Our work is focused on social change, well-being and peer coaching in healthcare, disadvantaged communities and schools,.

    Wellness Projects include managing depression and other chronic disease with our unique peer based wellness coaching trained communities. We need people with skills in writing, editing, ebook creation, education, illustration and design skills mainly InDesign. I am very collaborative and we are an expanding social enterprise very open to the ideas and skills that people bring with them.

    Environmental Projects include supporting social change through shareholder activism and climate change activism. We support the work of Daryl, whose house was burnt during the Black Saturday fires 10 years ago. He is building an awesome earthship in Kinglake - an hour from here.

    We also need help to keep the house lovely, organised and clean- a bit of gardening, building and garden maintenance work.

    We have been fortunate to have so many wonderful applying! My apologies if I don't respond as time is not my friend at this time, and we are very specific in our needs. I will definitely respond if you fit our needs and we have space at the time.

    Here are a few key areas in case you fit the description for any one or more of these:

    EDUCATION BOOKS & DESIGN
    1. Someone with great and humorous writing skills and editing skills for the books training people to share wellness in the health and wellness arena.
    2. Illustrators or designers with high level drawing or design skills or using Adobe tools (in Design) iBook author, or animation. Online social media skills
    3. Turning educational resources and books into ebooks for online learning.

    THE HOME
    1. Someone with building skills. Always maintenance to do.
    2. We always need someone to care for the house cleaning, and love people who have uber organisation skills to get all the spaces in order
    3. We have a gorgeous staffyx doggy and a garden

    We are an open, supportive and self motivated innovation loving, artistic and sometimes musical co-sharing community.

    Many vegos and vegans pass through here. We buy a tonne of veggies and fruit at the market each week, and pre-dumpster sourced high quality sourdough breads, I eat whole food and am gluten free (but you can also eat normal food!)

    We like people to connect and learn from each other about traveling Australia and doing farm work for extending visa. We have dreams of developing our current living model into an international nomad network where we can share the skills you will learn to do good! If you are interested in applying your skills to a volunteer shareholder activism or Earthship project that are in San Francisco - you may even want to go there as part of your workaway world tour. We see here as a place for you to build great skills to become an awesome volunteer.

    We encourage personal wellness in our home in terms of your lifestyle and open channels of communication. We are a drug and smoke free home, but you are more than welcome to overdose on 80% dark chocolate. We also are alcohol free, except for special occasions.

    We have a gorgeous loving enthusiastic staffyx dog Shani who needs a little bit more walking and love from everyone.

    Bedrooms are either big and lovely spaces, or tiny and lovely spaces. We now have one bedroom for sharing with a bunk bed if you are open to that. Thankyou for your interest.

    If you have writing, research, app or web development, editing, graphic design, drawing, film making skills that would be of great value to our wellness skill and health literacy education project.

    We love innovative thinkers who can contribute to developing ideas and spaces.

    If you have cleaning, cooking and especially organising my cupboards and rooms to maximise our spaces, carpentry or general building skills to help us make our spaces more usable that would be of great value to us too!

    What else ...

    I want to have people here who are self motivated, so are able to contribute without having to be asked to. We eat tonnes of veggies and fruit and need people in the community who like to cook them:) . We sometimes do yoga in the mornings and i have just started running a workshop every two weeks on self hacking wellness.
    St Kilda East is a vibrant multi cultural suburb. We have bikes and are close to many forms of public transport and located 10 minutes drive/tram ride to the beach.
