Hi, I'm Ben. I'm well travelled and friendly. I have previously used Workaway as a workawayer, but this is my first time as a host. But I was a host on another travel website for a few years when I lived in New Zealand. I'm a filmmaker and media producer, and I am now setting up a small business which makes and sells fermented produce at markets.
I have a few different projects planned which I want help with around this property. I'm setting up gardens and a large undercover growing tunnel for growing vegetables. I have built a pizza oven, and plan to mosaic that, so if anyone is feeling creative that should be fun. I Also have a dam on the property, and would like help in making it nicer to swim in.

Help around the house
I am running a food business which converts vegetables into fermented products (sauerkrauts, pickles, hot sauces, ect), so you can learn how to make these products.
I am also a professional media producer, so if you're interested to learn, I can show you different areas of media production (filming, photography, video and stills editing, audio recording and editing).
What I need help with is setting up gardens - building rock walls, weeding, mowing, watering. Building a greenhouse - basic carpentry, building raised garden beds, composting. General maintenance around the house and property.
If you have building or gardening skills, then that is perfect. But it is also fine if you are willing to try and learn.
Depending on your skills, I would occasionally like help on a few media projects too.
Ideally I would like workawayers who can work independently.

The accommodation is my house, which is lovely! You will have your own room and double bed.
My house is on a large property 100+ acres, with a dam and creeks.
Currently it is just me and my dog living in this house, but I am finding a flatmate now, so there will be more people living here.
I also live next door to my family's farm, who come and visit almost every day.
I will provide delicious food. I'm not vegetarian, but can cater for vegetarians/vegans. If you like to cook then maybe we can share recipes?
Smokers welcome, but only outside please.
The area is full of beautiful rainforests and waterfalls, so if you're interested in hiking then it is perfect. It is also close (1.5hrs) to cairns, so you can have a night out or go diving on the reef.
There is a lot of wildlife around here if you are interested in animals. Platypus live in the creeks and dam on the property. There are also cassowarys, tree kangaroos, wallabies, bats, frogs, and other marsupials.
