    Between 6th and 19th of Feb I will also need help in my brother's house by the sea at Yanchep (right over Yanchep Lagoon) - there I need a tiler, painter, plumber.
    In Wanneroo I need help with gardening and tree pruning, compost building, plumbing, electrics, conversion to solar energy, carpentry, cooking and housework. (I am booked out here until 19th Feb).
    We provide meals, good accommodation, a private bedroom, comfortable beds, bathroom, use of laundry, free wi-fi, and bikes. A full day can be worked if you want to take the next day off for sightseeing or job interviews. We can help with advice on finding work and will give good references to good workers.
    The property is a large 4.5-acre property that we plan to set up as a sustainable community. We appreciate workers with the following skills, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, reticulation system, - less hours would be required for skilled work. Most of the work is unskilled and easy which is why we ask for five hours of good work each day. When considering a fair exchange the actual work achieved is fairer than counting hours.
    As the cost of living in Australia almost doubled this past year, particularly food, accommodation and energy, we ask particularly now for a fair exchange of labour to cover our costs in providing a fully equipped well above average home for you. ( like a resort, with gym, salt water swimming pool, massage room, yoga mats, chi machine, beautiful peaceful gardens, good healthy food, books, games.
    We need positive, self-motivated helpers who can work well on their own and understand a fair exchange and a willingness to contribute cheerfully and see a project to the end. We maintain a happy atmosphere and appreciate good humour.
    We have some camping equipment you can borrow and a place to leave your car safely if you are going to Bali or?

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We are pioneers in this area - we were born here and are the oldest living inhabitants . We care about the environment and are happy to teach skills in caring for plants, travel in Australia, and places to see on the West coast.
    In Wanneroo, I have free-range hens, and a beautiful garden.
    I can teach you how tend a worm farm, toss compost and prune trees. I have an extensive library of handyman magazines and a great collection of gardening books, (and books on most topics - I sell books online so I could teach you about book collecting if you are interested).

  • Ayuda


    Gardening, composting, collecting firewood, house cleaning, (being able to use a small chainsaw and handyman skills would be helpful) , brick paving. Someone who could put in irrigation would be great, or plumbing.

    Algo más...

    There are some nice walks (eg around Lake Joondalup) we are half an hour from Yanchep National Park and 2 hours drive to Moor River and the Pinnacles with some great photo opportunities.
    I can pick you up from the station or a bus comes directly to Elizabeth St, Wanneroo.
    You can work full days and then take full days off for job interviews or touring. Hours of work depend more on the skill involved and work achieved, rather than a set 5 - so long as it is a fair exchange on both sides.

    Plenty of secure space for all size vans - of course, voluntary hours would be reduced and are negotiable depending on food and power consumption.

    It is a large, well-fenced property but no cats please. We have an abundance of precious birdlife.
