    Description

    We are a friendly and open minded family lucky enough to be living on beautiful 16 acre farm 15mins from Sawtell beach (good surf!), just south of Coffs Harbour. We would love to invite you to come and experience our dream, which is to live a more natural, conscious and slower paced lifestyle, completely off the grid and as self sustainable as we can possibly manage. Our farm is set amongst the lush sub-tropical rain forests, with views out over the ocean! We are truly blessed. When we bought the land 5 years ago and it was just a cow paddock, and we have done a lot of hard work building homes and regenerating the land.
    We are looking for enthusiastic, hardworking, good fun people that love working outside. We love sharing our knowledge of permaculture, Bowen/massage therapy, Horse behaviour and training and horse therapy with interested open minded people.

    We require help establishing some permaculture systems ( food forests, veggie gardens, nurseries etc). I have studied basic permaculture and have plans for projects but am also very open to design input from guests! So it will be physical outdoor, get your hands dirty style of work, and also hopefully an educational experience at the same time.

    We are surfers, and if the surf is up, then its tools down!! and off to the beach :) I also have a full kit of climbing gear, and regularly go climbing in this area.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Coffs Harbour is the nearest city (25mins) and is easily accessed by train or bus from most east coast destinations.
    There are endless adventures to be had in your free time, as there is great hiking, camping and bushwalking and miles of beautiful empty beaches in the region.
    We love animals and have several dogs, horses, chickens and guinea pigs.
    We are looking for easy going people with a good sense of humour, that are willing to work, and want to have a nice authentic experience in a beautiful location, and make some new friends :)
