    URGENT REQUEST .. we open on 15 October .. only 8 weeks to go. Counting down and Heaps of work to do before we open. Would LOVE Love love YOUR Help !

    IF YOU'RE AVAILABLE .. and want to EXPLORE our beautiful Blue Mountains .. give me a shout.

    My volunteers LOVE staying in this Emerging Community Space in Springwood. I intend to register it as a 'non for profit'.

    I dearly need some admin help, social media, etc. as well as hands on in the garden scape.

    Wahoooo .. with the HeLp of some very enthusiastic volunteers, this space is transforming into a beautiful and welcoming space. We open in 8 weeks and we Welcome Your Contribution as we move up a gear to create a dense food forest brimming with yummy edibles. Some of the tasks include planting and espalier fruit trees, create new growing beds, put in a stone fruit orchard, tie in the design, general gardening, add some compost dunnies, finish off some light landscaping, build a pizza oven in the belly of a dragon, build a studio, install water tanks, put in irrigation and drainage, create the Zen space, the eco pond, the frog pond, the Men's Space, the Pink Room and much much more ...


    Stay for a few hours, a few days or 1-2 weeks. Heaps of time to explore the richness of the Blue Mountains as I work part time.

    Singles, Families, Couples and Teams of Volunteers are Welcome. You will be staying in a really cruisy home environment and the volunteers feedback is testament to how well you are looked after. In your downtime, be prepared to wind down, sleep in, read, relax, play music or explore, whatever it is that lights you up.

    Explore, chill, help out for a few hours and the rest of the day or week is yours. Relax into a cozy and welcoming home, set in a serene location backing to bush.

    I can take 1-3 guests at a time, so if you are travelling as a couple or with 1-2 friends, I can accommodate you. My initial offer of accommodation is one - two (1-2) weeks, longer if we are resonant.

    Volunteers contribute 25 flexible hours per week. This means you are not tied in every day allowing you more freedom to explore the Blue Mountains and surrounding areas. I would appreciate help on my non-work days (open to negotiation). I do encourage siesta / rest as needed. I'm a bit of an early bird but if you like to sleep in and go late, I'm up for the early start and late finish.

    All people that stay are nurtured and nourished.

    I provide two healthy basic meals per day (staples, fruit, vegetables and produce from the organic garden). If you require additional items specific to your dietary needs, feel free to bring them along. You can cook your own meals or we can share cooking most days.

    We are all responsible for sharing the housework and maintaining a happy healthy and respectful home. Food hygiene is paramount. NO chemicals (personal care products, hairspray, incense, perfume, etc) - I am extremely allergic.

    No smoking. No vaping. No drugs. Social alcohol permitted.

    Things are ramping up again on site and I would welcome your HELP to complete some more goals. I'm putting in more fruit trees and the organic vegetable gardens are thriving. This property will be featured in the Blue Mountains Edible Garden Trail and I would like to get the workshops happening as soon as possible, including the performance space set around the ampitheatre.

    Thank You for connecting to this profile. I AM absolutely thrilled to have already hosted people from the WorkAway community. These volunteers have been wonderful to share space with, respectful and happy to contribute.

    About this space .. I AM Co-Creating a Creative Space for Community to Connect. This is a social enterprise and philanthropic endeavour. That means I don’t get paid for setting this up. This aim of this endeavour is to build, support and connect Community.

    This endeavour will primarily teach Permaculture Principles, Build Community, Host Creative Workshops and include a Pond Performance Space for Musicians, Singers, Actors, DJs, Stand-Up Comics, Poets, Story-tellers. This endeavour will be home to a densely planted Organic Food Forest which will help contribute and support Community. It will be a place to connect with the earth, feel nurtured, nourished and where one can take a breath and be still.

    If you see yourself drawn to this wonderful project, I would love to hear from you. If you have any building skills or are happy to get creative in the yard, I’d love to hear from you. ALL Help WELCOME.

    Best wishes
    Amanda 💕🌈💕

  • Hébergement


    Choose from one of two bedrooms depending on availability, length of stay and number of guests (queen bed, double bed, one single bed). If you have your own travelling accommodation, that's great too.

    Property backs to bush, allowing your experience here being deeply immersed in the serenity and quiet of the place. Did I mention you will have lots of time off.
