    Hi there Workaway people.
    My name is Ann and Bill is my partner

    Our property is situated in Woodbridge, a small town 35km south of Hobart on the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
    The property has great views of the Channel and Bruny Island with a small beach in front of the property

    Properties in the surrounding locality often have excess fruits and vegetables, which I enjoy the process of preserving and bottling for domestic and hobby purposes.
    When required, we assist other residents on local properties to pick grapes, olives and over abundance of fruits etc.
    I grow quite a bit of rhubarb and horseradish . We often trade plants and produce with our neighbors.

    Having spent the last 10 years trading at Salamanca Market, I have withdrawn, as 10 years is enough!!!
    I still like to visit local Farmers Markets.
    We need a bit of help in our small domestic vegetable garden, and Bill, my partner needs help outdoors to maintain the property. We are devoted to the no-dig technique using lots of mulch, so weeds are minimal (In a perfect world!)
    Help would be approx. 5 hours per day, with flexible hours so you can take time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
    You may prefer to help longer hours with whole days off so you can spend complete days sight seeing etc

    There is a small cabin on the property, with a double and a single bunk. It has a TV and heater. There is a 'lunch room' adjacent to the Cabin with basic cooking facilities and room to relax. Good internet reception. I will provide dinner, and often, lunch, in the main house (special needs not a problem) Breakfast is taken independently in the lunch room.

    If arriving by plane, I will more than likely be able to collect you from the airport, or there is a bus service from Hobart to Woodbridge

    Woodbridge has a small general store, post office and a great local pub called Peppermint Bay
    The village is a 10mins walk through forest and along the foreshore

    Visits of about two weeks are ideal but flexible

    There are several other Workaway hosts locally, Bruny Island and Cygnet, so you have a chance to meet like minded travelers and there are many places of interest in the vicinity.
    I would be happy to assist with information to further your travels in around Tasmania.

    Please see the photos which give an idea of the property, the helpers bungalow & breakfast/lunch area, dinners and some of the various activities the helpers help us with.
