    Description

    Hi I'm Christina. I am a single Mum with an 11 year old son Bodhi who lives with me part time. We live in Belgrave in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges - a popular tourist destination in Victorian. We have a cat, 2 rabbits and chickens and try to grow our own food and live as sustainably as possible.
    We live on a normal size block on the north side of a small hill and overlook a beautiful treed suburb. We live in a unique house we renovated with curved walls and ceiling, lovely views and lots of timber features. We have a bright and airy house.
    I work as the Project Manager for a group who encourage community food growing in public places. I also work as an End of Life Consultant, Death Doula and Sacred Ritual Practitioner. My son attends the local Steiner school and plays the cello.
    We are a warm, inviting, inclusive friendly family who love sharing our home and lifestyle with new visitors and learning about other cultures and traditions.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live near beautiful forests and gardens on the quiet side of the mountain of a very popular tourist destination. We have beautiful bird life, local parks, lakes for swimming and live in a vibrant, connected and creative community with lots of amazing events and local activities. We practice a permaculture lifestyle where we can and can share lots of knowledge and wisdom around living sustainably, homesteading,, deep ecology, rites of passage, eco parenting and many other topics.

    There is a large range of jobs both indoor and outdoor to suit any skill level. There is always plenty of weeding, raking leaves, composting, planting seeds/seedlings, watering the garden and feeding the animals. There are general cleaning tasks, lots of decluttering and many handyman jobs. Larger building and maintenance jobs are available for skilled people. There are lots of homesteading type jobs: preserving, repairing, upcycling etc. and decanting goods for a community bulk purchase group.
    Any technical, computer skills and administrative type skills are welcome also
    The exchange requires 4 hours per day over 5 days out of seven. I am flexible as to how these hours are spread throughout the week. If you want to work more hours per day and have more days off that is fine.

    I have 2 fully furnished rooms both with a queen size bed and plenty of drawer space. The rooms both have their own entrance to the front porch. Bedding is provided. There are 3 x single bed mattresses if any extra bedding is needed for children or extra friends. We have a 4 bedroom open plan living space with a large lounge room and a balcony overlooking forest views. The front porch is an outdoor 'lounge' area with BBQ and woodfired pizza oven. There is a shared bathroom with bath available.
    Meals are provided and will mostly be vegetarian. You are welcome to cook your own or contribute to shared meals as well.
    We are a non smoking family however smoking is acceptable outside the house. We are generally quiet and both love reading and playing board games.
    There is room to park vehicles in the driveway. If the rooms inside are full but you have your own van/camper etc. you are still welcome to apply and stay in your own vehicle
