Warm greetings to the transient populace!
We are a permaculture retreat situated in dense subtropical rainforest within the Sunshine coast hinterland, Queensland.
We have several wwoofing/skilled Horticulturalist positions available for self motivated adventurists who love the thought of helping construct a new food forest Permaculture design and who wish to obtain & possess the off grid living skills necessary to enjoy humble outback living in a thriving food/rainforest environment.
On offer is a furnished double room within a recently refurbished timber cottage as well as awesome organic food & toiletries supplied. Food prep & cook training also available for those who appreciate awesome culinary delights.
It's been said on many occasions that, "we eat like kings", a reputation we relish.
We're fortunate enough to be able to enjoy an amazing bush walking environment which highlights the spender of the iconic Mary river. We also like to provide a plethora of herbal healing detox knowledge and general life skills that are simply unavailable within the Corporate fool system.
In return, we require 5 hours a day of steady constructive input over a six day basis from our residing helpers. This can and will include brush cutting/ strimming/ weeding/ planting and general property upgrading and maintenance. Most of our workers have their day over and done with by midday, which allows for plenty of relaxation and study time. Or even a little workout time in the gymnasium for those competent.
A little paid work will be available in the afternoons for those willing to chip in with trade skills or handy autonomous abilities.
There is NO-MOBILE-PHONE-SIGNAL, but internet access is intermittently available.
We are quite remote, no shops around the corner, so this is the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and truly discover the inner you, or enjoy some romantic time with your travel partner.
A minimum 2 week commitment is required and appreciated, and no maximum for "those that get it!"
OK, for those that have read this far, let's cut straight through the bullshit and get to the chase; this is bloody hard work, we'll be carting 260m3 of mulch around a newly designed food forest to protect virgin soil, and collecting rocks to strategically place through Swale's to slow any chance of water erosion; (this plant out is a very rare opportunity, and is likely to change the successful applicant's lives for the better, for ever!)
We are coming into summer, so please give this serious consideration, this is not a Strawberry farm; we love to have fun, however, the hard work makes it all so rewarding to sit back and enjoy for those with this sort of passion.
Please forward your CV's/ or references along with your expressions of interest.
In Lak'ech, Mukunda, Judgie & Hans.
