We are, Arcana & Francois Ribaud.
We are new to work away, and are yet to have our first helpers :)
We have 3 wonderful & happy Children, whom are aged 8, 6 & 2.
We live in a beautiful valley, within an off grid community, NW of Tasmania.
Francois is from Bretagne, France. His passions and focuses are biodynamics, preserving food, cooking, botany, running, gardening, organic life style, viticulture, wine making & wine drinking!
Arcana is from Australia. Her passions and focuses are raising vibrant little humans, home schooling the children with a Steiner based philosophy, organic living and life style, gardening, skinning & tanning animal furs, reading, manifesting, baking, singing, holding Women's kirtan circles, playing the harp & guitar.
We love gentle, quality time together as a family.
We are quite social people who enjoy having friends over for lunch and dinner feasts, for fun & memorable times!
We live on 20 acres, with a 2 acre garden/orchard. In the orchard we have a garden, sheep, chickens, meat rabbits and a cat. The property is high in the mountains, with stunning views.
We moved to Tasmania from WA in 2021 and absolutely love it here!
We hope you will take the time to enjoy community lifestyle and perhaps learn a thing or two with us and we hope to learn from you.
