  • Description


    Hello and thanks for visiting my WorkAway page…

    Upcoming Vacancies:

    March 2023 - flexible timing

    My nine year old daughter and I have recently moved to a riverside property. We are in the beginning stages of planning and implementing a small productive farm based upon a mix of permaculture, biodynamics, regenerative agriculture and land for wildlife. We live in a sub-tropical, unique area of regional NSW, on the East Coast, at Upper Orara which is close to Coffs Harbour and it's beaches.

    We need some help with variety of projects, cleaning and cooking as well as possibly some childcare. We live here with our cat, free ranging chickens, bunny and 2 friendly Pilgrim geese. It is envisioned that you would like being a part of family life while you are here.

    At our new riverfront 1 acre home there are permaculture projects, art projects, painting projects, furniture up cycling projects, garden preparation and design etc. Bring your own skills and experience to the situation eg yoga classes, build a mud brick oven, mosaic project etc. Or let me teach you along the way as we prepare for an off-grid sustainable lifestyle. I have just recently returned from studying a Permaculture Design Course and am brimming with ideas for the property which you could help implement while learning about permaculture, if this interests you.

    Please contact me if you are interested in joining us here :)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Enjoy a good rest here and spend some time being a part of a vibrant alternative Australian family. I can help you explore the natural wonderland that surrounds us by imparting my local knowledge and drive you to places when we are heading that way. I can share life wisdom and things I've learnt along the way. We've had WorkAwayers here who have enjoyed learning about cooking, parenting and permaculture. We are excellent at hosting people with limited English and teaching people more of our English language.
