  • Description


    We are David, Nikki, Elke, Oscar, Nimowei, OscarRama and Huxley and live on a 5 acre, solar powered hobby farm just 10 mins from Castlemaine, a vibrant town in central Victoria. The property has an old orchard, a dam and we are currently implementing a permaculture designed garden, and help with establishing this would be great. Accommodation would be a lovely, large room above the barn suitable for singles or couples. We have telephone/internet but no broadcast television. We are a vegetarian/vegan family and are quite informal and friendly.
