  • Descripción


    We are Kev and Katrina and Sparrow, stewards to a beautiful permaculture property 2.5acres at Macmasters on the Central Coast, NSW. We have been tending to the land using permaculture principles and have cultivated a warm community vibe over the years and hope to keep doing so. We would love support to help build a couple composting toilets (materials supplied), plus other general maintenance of the gardens, chook pens and veggie beds. We have a Jacuzzi, pool and tennis court and about 20min walk from the beach.

    We use Permaculture principles of design, philosophy and like to preserve the natural systems that are already in place. With this in mind there will be a natural education of understanding patterns in nature, the water flows, soils, techniques and strategies to work with the local ecology.

    Looking for help with 4hrs / day on 2.5 acre property. In exchange for glamping accomodation and communal meals we’d love support with the build of a couple composting toilets on site, maintaining lawns, edges, hedges and help to cleanup fallen branches. We have a communal fire circle under grandmother angophra tree - as such firewood collecting is also handy.
    We regularly planting trees, shrubs and vegetables in allocated areas which you can participate in, maintaining chook pen, help move old building materials offsite and building a retainer wall for a shed.
    There will be occasions to support as directed, e.g. help to hold ladders etc. Fantastic if you already have experience with hand held gardening machinery such as blowers, mowers, whipper snippers, hedges and can lift heavy objects safely.
    Bonus if you have musical instruments and interest in creating art in evening time.

    Algo más...

    We are located 25 minute walk from Macmasters beach/5min drive/10 min bike ride. There are many sacred sites around the area to access, Kincumber Mountain, Kariong heiroglyphs and beyond.
    We are up early, yoga meditation dance is a part of our lives daily, and we are mostly an alcohol free home.
    Ideally would be best to work the 4hrs when it’s not too hot and you’re not working in the direct sun for too long.
