  • Description

    Rob is a sweet potato farmer by profession and Laura is an accountant. We both live on Rob’s sweet potato farm in northern New South Wales Australia. We both have a keen interest in learning about permiculture and sustainable living techniques and would love to assist and learn on some farms as we travel around Europe. We are friendly, social people whose interests include: cooking, gardening, nature, reading, movies, sport, learning about history and experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.
