  • Description

    Description

    We are three people working towards a self-sufficient organic lifestyle and native habitat regeneration on a beautiful bush property 35 minutes from Hobart. One of us is in the social services; one is a retired meteorologist; and one is a retired organic farmer. We are all politically engaged and well-traveled, and two of us enjoy practicing our French and Spanish.
    IMPORTANT: BECAUSE WE ARE 7.5 KM FROM THE NEAREST BUS STOP, YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN TRANSPORT.

    Help

    In general, we would love to have help with gardening, maintenance, painting, cleaning, etc. We would particularly appreciate people with building/carpentry skills to design and build a deck for the cottage at which you will be staying!

    At the moment, we are particularly looking for two+ people to stay from 1 to 15 March (or longer on either side, if you wish). During this period, you will have only very light duties, but will be asked to stay available to provide help if needed for a disabled person.

    We offer a lovely self-contained cottage with full cooking facilities, bath and shower, and (very clean) outdoor composting toilet, as well as hearty vegetarian meals sourced from our garden and our chickens. The cottage has a bedroom with a double bed, as well as two fold-up single beds that can be put up in the lounge room.
