    We are a professional couple with an 18 hectare property in the far Far North. Our block is just inland just inland from the beautiful Taipa Beach, Doubtless Bay. We are developing the land inline with Permaculture principles. We welcome travellers with an an interest in learning more about Permaculture practices and all aspects of organic gardening/farming. We appreciate the practical input on this project and the added enthusiasm of those others who are similarly committed to ecologically-conscious living. Short term (7 day minimum) or longer term. Vegan household. Any experience with computers & online marketing is welcome, too. Initially we will also need help with some interior painting and setting up our new home.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    You'll get to know the micro ecology of worms & soil and the reality of waste as it recycles into usable resources. You will learn to love mud, muck and the amazement of the growing world. You will acquire the language for tools, plants and many processes. You will experience the satisfaction of seeing hard work transform into built benefits & honourable work. You will witness how well everyone lives here.
