We live on 15 acres in the hills overlooking the Huon River. The property features many practical examples of permaculture design including food forests and intensive gardens. Our home is a solar passive with a large vegetable garden, mixed fruit orchard, hazelnut orchard, cattle, chickens and goats. I am passionate about regenerative agriculture and have set up a small scale demonstration farm, and also consult and and teach in regen grazing and permaculture. Living on a property that is beautiful and harmonious is important to us.

Help is needed to move cattle and goats in our regenerative grazing system, plant and harvest vegetables and fruit, feeding hens and collecting eggs, planting fruit trees and food forest plants, fencing, building 2 very small bridges, fitting out (insulating and lining) a new volunteer accommodation bus, mulching orchards......painting cool designs on the buses!
Helpers sleep in a large and clean bus, or the house depending on the weather and volunteer numbers. We eat meals together at the house. We have a mixed diet (some of us eat meat, some don't).
The Huon River is only a km away. It is a great river for swimming, kayaking and rowing. There are lovely bushwalks around us. There are buses to Hobart and to the south very close by.
