We are a family of 3. Myself, my husband and our 2 year old daughter. We have a passion for sustainable healthy living and music. Adam and I traveled through Central and South America for 2 years volunteering on a number permaculture farms. We purchased our own dream property of 10 acres in 2018 and have slowly been turning it into our paradise. We have a north facing 4 acre paddock which we have started a small syntropics system on. We are also rotating a couple of friendly beef cows around this section of the property. They other half of the property is mostly native Australian forest with lots of wildlife. Our main focus has been to get the infrastructure sorted, with new tanks to catch more water. Our focus is now on the gardens. We have the capacity to be almost self sufficient with vegetables just from the syntropics section. We have also started work on herb gardens around the house. Next we will be working on planting out a food forest.

You will have the opportunity to learn about permaculture principals and syntropics style farming. You will gain practical skills around cattle and grazing management, land management, water management, building skills. We have a national park across the road from our property with trails to Cooroora mountain which is a spectacular mountain to climb. We are less than 10 mins to Pomona; home of a silent theatre. Cooran is only 5 mins away with regular musical Tuesdays and an open mic night on a Saturday once a month. There's great community here yet we also have a very quiet secluded property. We often host live music events ourselves.

We would mostly like help in the gardens and with moving and taking care of the cows. However a little help around the house would also be much appreciated especially with washing up the dishes. Cooking is welcome also.
We love learning other languages and would love our daughter to be exposed to other languages. We speak a little Spanish ourselves. Our daughter loves meeting and playing with new people and some help with entertaining and taking care of her would be much appreciated. Adam is a cabinet maker by trade and a great teacher. If you have any practical skills with building or would like to learn this could also be a good opportunity. There are many projects to work on.

We have a large indoor studio space that can be used for working or other projects if needed. The WiFi is a little slow however I am looking into getting a booster for times of need.
We have a leveled flat area that is appropriate for this however power would be limited.
Yes, as long as they are friendly with children and livestock - ie cows and chickens (the neighbors have chickens). We don't have a fence so it may be necessary to tie a dog up at times.
