  • Description


    We are a communal household of all ages living in central Castlemaine. Cam and Natalie both in their 50s. Mia and Tali are young people that are surrounded by friends coming and going. We have friends of all ages that come and stay, shared meals and games and political discussions. Our place is surrounded by the bush and walking distance to the train station, cafes and town. We are situated on a hill and hence have great views. We are living a sustainable lifestyle and are politically active in the environment movement and first Nations justice. We have projects around our house that need extra hands including the garden, chickens, and improving the biodiversity of the bush we are stewarding. We have a resident echidna (Yulawil) and kangaroos. We are building a small Hempcrete hut and would love a hand in its construction. We have fitted out a shipping container for accomodation with spectacular views.
