    Descripción

    We have a small hobby farm with a few cows and horses and we are on a path to live self sustainability. We eat from the vegetable garden. We are trying to regenerate our land, create bio diversity and a safe place for wild life.

    Come learn some of the skills, knowledge and terminology that may help you get a job on an outback cattle station. We've had volunteers for the past 10 years so we understand how to teach people new skills and negotiate the language barrier.

    FARM SKILLS MAY INCLUDE:
    Using power tools
    Digging post holes
    Mixing and pouring concrete
    Operate & maintain a 4WD, ride on lawn mower & whipper snipper
    Electric fencing
    Barbwire fencing
    Fixing fences
    Operate pumps and generators
    Change tyres
    Safely drive with and reverse a trailer
    Working with steel
    Building gate and corner assemblies
    Using workshop hand tools
    Composting
    Vegetable gardening
    Moving cows

    We have done alot of charity work with horses and riding for the disabled.
    UNFORTUNATELY THERE ISN'T ANY HORSE HELP NEEDED AT THE MOMENT

    Mixing horse feed
    How to safely approach & catch a horse

    Quick release knot
    Feeding horses with a nose bag
    (SORRY WE DONT HAVE ANY HORSES SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS)
