Volunteer Energy Exchange For Space, Meals And Amenities - Now Accepting Applications For Mid May.

Gwoya Uki, Byron Bay

Job Description

Dear Lovely Byron Backpacker Community..

We are a little family venture blessed with 3.5 acres of pristine paradise surrounded by hundreds if acres of protected wildlife sanctuary just over 10 mins from the little township of Uki (2484).. (50 mins west of Byron Bay, 40 mins to the coast)..

We are a small family of three (one full time here & two part time on the coast) lucky enough to be sinking in roots after 7 years of becoming established on this blessed land we call home.. we are in the beginnings of creating a healing space on our little patch centered around meditation and gardens.. We are an intentional space having multiple projects on the go and multiple accommodation options to suit up to 5 individuals or 2 couples at a time (and the odd van..) The offer is an energy exchange helping me Gwoya to keep things rolling along here in return for comfortable accommodation, meals and access to this pristine and predominately quite paradise.. The offer also includes all amenities such as bedding, water, power etc... while there's also the possibility for a day of paid work each week (as well as the energy exchange contribution days).

We suggest a modest 3 x (steady but not back breaking) 7 hour contribution days in return for each 7 days stay (21hrs work = 7 Days accommodation and meals for 3 days).. We also wish everyone to be able to enjoy the space for its natural beauty and abundant space when its time to chill and relax which there's plenty of..

There are food gardens to be worked with fresh food to be shared.. Various spaces to be constructed and to be enjoyed.. think yoga decks with mountain views, abundant water, cold plunges, bush walks, swimming holes and waterfalls... these activities happen daily rain hail or shine, and you are invited to partake as little or as much as you feel..

We suggest your own transport is essential so you remain connected to the greater community out there.. or it can become isolating for the best of us..

We take on new volunteers mid month each month and offer a maximum of 4 weeks stay.. If you are interested in volunteering please give us at least a weeks notice as we receive many applications.

We have both a self contained 5 meter Belle tent with own fully equipped outdoor Kitchen, own bathroom, toilet and views, and also a separate space in the main house on its own level with its own entrance and yard.... Both have privacy and the potential to make yourself at home..

We understand that nothing is forever especially when exploring a big country, we just want everyone to enjoy the time they do spend here...

We also entertain the odd Van if you're needing a space to stop and be still for an extended period before your next big adventure...

Being handy helps, but being enthusiastic is better.. we are always happy to impart knowledge and tech new skills if you're keen to learn and have a go.. we are about to start building SUPER ADOBE DOMES if that interests you!

If this sounds like you, you and your partner and or you and your friends, reach out and we will see if we are a fit..

Thanks for your time..

All the best,

Gwoya :)
