A little about Life Light Farm

On this farm we raise alpaca, horses, pigs, sheep and poultry. Following permaculture ethics is fundamental in our methods of growing fruits and vegetables. Our farm utilizes solar power and rainwater collection tanks in an effort to be as sustainable as possible.

Organic agriculture should maintain the natural ecology in order to enhance the health of soil, vegetation, livestock, and human. Our fruits, herbs, and veggies are only grown in a sustainable manner. We do not use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically engineered organism! Our livestock is raised on expansive aboriginal grasslands, a paradise for grazing animals! We try to provide our animals with the best we have to offer.

Our meals are primarily Chinese cuisine however we offer our shared kitchen to volunteers to cook as they please. We believe cooking meals from different backgrounds is a key element of cultural exchange. Our entertainment includes ping pong, films, board games, fishing, boating, and scenic walks.

Review

Had an enjoyable time volunteering on Lifelight farm! Definitely a unique way to explore Australia. Speaking Chinese is helpful to communicate with the other workers on the farm but there are English speaking people as well. It’s a good opportunity to experience Chinese culture too as meals are Chinese style – very yummy! (homemade dumplings, noodles, paos) Got to learn more about organic farming through weeding and mulching and got to feed the animals (cute alpacas 🙂 ). Interacted with animals such as alpacas, pigs, chicken, horses, sheep, a cat and dog (Buddy) who was very affectionate.

Learnt how to drive a steam roller which was cool! Would recommend Lifelight to anyone who is willing to work hard but have a good time. We work 6 hours a day and the rest of the time is up to us to spend.

Thankful for the opportunity to interact with the volunteers from different countries (Japan, France, Switzerland, Germany, America). We watch movies during the night and have meals together. Enjoyed taking walks around the farm to watch the sunset and the night view of the stars is breathtaking without the light from the city. We go on outings during the weekend to places such as noosa which was nice to explore other areas of Sunshine Coast.

It was a great 2 weeks away from the city immersed in nature and the hosts and volunteers were so hospitable that it felt like family. They were genuine in making sure I settled down well; asking if they could provide anything. Missing everyone already! I look forward to keeping in contact with the hosts and volunteers I have met.
