  • Description


    * it’s spring! we are busy getting the garden ready for summer planting and would love some kind helpers!
    Hi! We are a family of four: mum,dad and our beautiful boys 8 & 10. We live in the Yarra Valley in the pretty village of Toolangi.
    We work running a natural health centre in Healesville and run a lovely little organic farm on the mountain where we grow food 🥒🥕🍅 and keep bees 🐝 Chickens 🐔 , Puppies🐶 and sheep 🐑 .

    There are kangaroos, wombats, many birds and amazing bushwalks nearby.
    Our passions are growing organic food, designing beautiful gardens, natural health;( shiatsu, naturopathy, yoga, meditation,) playing music (violin, guitar ,
    cello) bushwalking and playing table tennis!

    We have a very nice double room for helpers. We eat a mixed diet and raise our own lambs, eggs and grow our own org. Veggies.
    Our place is quiet (except for the children 👬😁) and with beautiful forest. Yes we have wifi too.

    We are happy to host a couple or 2 friends or a single person who enjoy interacting with children and in family life and can be self motivated and responsible, we don't use our phones during work times.
    We also like helpers to stay a couple of weeks or more. After a few days we can have a discussion to make sure the exchange is working happily for everyone.
    We hope to make your time with us really lovely.

    I usually check emails once a day.

    We look forward to hearing from you, Rowena and Tim

  • Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    The main reason we have workaways is for cultural exchange. Tim and myself were farm volunteers when we were travelling around oz in our early 20's, we've also done volunteering in Japan as a whole family, which was fantastic!

    Most of our helpers learn lots about growing organic veggies, cooking healthy foods, how to care for farm animals, managing weeds and plant care.

    We really like to share our beautiful property and the incredible forest nearby with others. We hope that both you and us will be inspired by our different life experiences, skills and way of being.

    For us growing amazing organic food in savvy ways is helping to create the revolution the world 🌎 needs
