  • Description


    We are super open people living together in a close knit community. We have chefs, performance artists and two small beings (2 and 7 years old) living amongst us. We have been growing organically for 30 years and use the garden produce to cook delicious healthy food. We strive to live a sustainable lifestyle and our garden is key to this. We love to travel, learn and enjoy a good cultural exchange.

    We have a one acre organic walled garden. We need help weeding, planting, digging etc. We also have two small children and may ask you to do the occasional babysitting

    We also would also like to rebuild our glass house at some stage :)

    We ask our helpers for 4-5 hours a day five days a week. We are chefs so we provide delicious vegetarian food- During the helping days we provide lunch. We will provide food for breakfast and dinner too but can prepare it yourself. :) On the days off we ask helpers to feed themselves.
