Free beach holiday in exchange for gardening
Seeking two to four people (friends, couple or small family) for 6 nights
Description: Beach holiday on the South Coast 2hrs from Sydney in exchange for gardening work. Self contained studio opposite Werri Beach. 6 nights Arrive Sat 24th Sept, Depart Fri 30th Sept. Accommodation is in the Boatshed. Bed configuration: two singles which can be joined to form a king bed plus queen sofa bed. Would suit friends, couple or small family.

Work: will involve mainly weeding and mulching (shoveling mulch onto the weeded garden). Work is suitable to both males or females. Some cleaning work may also be needed.
Hours: $1000 accommodation is equivalent to 40 hrs work at $25 an hour split between the number of people staying. So for two people would equate to 3-4 hrs a day for 5 days Sunday - Thursday.
