    Descripción

    We have an 85 acre mountain rainforest landscape in the hinterland behind Byron Bay and near the town of Mullumbimby. It is a beautiful, ancient rainforest valley with fresh water creeks, swimming holes, waterfalls, rainforest and mountain plateaus.

    We are a certified organic permaculture farm and grow various foods, herbal medicines and useful plants mostly small scale for our own personal use rather than commercially. We have goats, sheep, chickens and cows but none of them are farmed or used for food and are part of the family and helping with grass control.

    Accommodation often possible with a private room / space and either in a self contained space or with access to a couple of nearby shared communal areas with kitchens, bathrooms, lounges, wifi, etc and a sharing with 1 or 2 others.

    Good healthy food is supplied to suit diet and preferences or less hours can be worked for organising your own food.

    Jobs are usually a good variety and always some organic gardening to do, sometimes some animal care (goats, sheep, chickens and cows - none are milked or eaten..!) - and some other help with various tasks around the farm including moving things, painting, repairs, harvesting, cooking, preserving, maintenance, light housework, laundry and sorting things. Often great chances to learn from other residents and workawayers with plenty of experience with regenerative agriculture, permaculture, self-sufficiency, sustainability - as consultants, managers, teachers and more.

    We have movies, books, magazines and internet access and the farm itself has beautiful mountain valley views, rainforest, animals and nearby are fresh water waterfalls, rock pools and swimming holes which are great in summer with walks/hikes and other things to do.

    When not helping with various jobs , there are plenty of opportunities to explore, relax, study, enjoy the land, animals and gardens, make and create artistic and useful things with plants, bamboo and natural materials and food and herbs to make medicines, cosmetics and preserved foods.

    Mullumbimby is great cosmopolitan, diverse rural town (7kms away) with people from around the world and lots going on with many activities, events, music, arts, markets, festivals, cafes and the beaches of Brunswick Heads nearby.

    Byron Bay has more going on 25 minutes away. HiItching is common and safe around here and there are often lifts available with residents going to town and back. Creeks and swimming are all close by in walking and biking distance.

    People willing to help with a good attitude can enjoy a beautiful place to stay in, nice food, meeting people and animals, learning skills, gaining knowledge, enjoying activities and making connections.
