It sounds like a great way to meet people and to find opportunities to work for my keep whilst studying in Tasmania. I only need a space to set up my camper with some privacy, a garden hose and power lead and aside from that I’m pretty well self sufficient!

We joined WWOOf to learn about different cultures, food practices and want to learn different skills. We are happy to return in our skills! We want to see what everyone around Australia is doing and have conversations about growing vegetables, keeping bees, making cheese! Whatever tickles the fancy!

Mt Jukes Eco Retreat is a farm based on permaculture principles, 35 mins from Mackay CBD and 1hr from Airlie Beach. The property is on 7 acres, completely off the grid run on solar and batteries. We also run our own water and are growing our own food to be fully self sufficient. We hold Yoga classes here most Sunday's in our beautiful Yoga Shala.  Go to our Facebook page "Mt Jukes Eco Retreat" to view our classes. You are welcome to join these classes during your stay. We have a natural spring running through the property so you can swim all year. We have over 300 fruit tree with 50 different varieties. All food that has been planted is based off nutritional values, food is our fuel so we treat what we eat with upmost respect. All meals provided are healing and based on a 5000 year old tradition (Ayurveda). The food is vegetarian, and very delicious! Mt Jukes sits right in front of the property which was a volcano thousands of years ago, not many in this area. Myself (Dave) and my daughter (Dakota) are here most of the time. Dakota lives in Mackay though she works on the property 7:30am - 3:30pm Mon - Friday and is here most Sunday's helping with Yoga classes.  You will also be accompanied by Roko, (my beloved Groodle), 3 chickens and we also have 2 Bee hives. We are in the process of introducing more animals that fit within the system. If you like the sound of our retreat and would like to stay on the property and help us with farm duties please get in contact!

We are looking forward to having the chance to experience new places in the world. WWOOFing sounds like a great way to travel cheaply while being environmentally conscious! We are taking some time off post high school and university to do something different and interesting, see new places and gain new skills and experiences. We are very excited by the opportunities that WWOOFing offers in seeing different parts of Australia and learning unique skills and knowledge from new people. We are both very passionate about and interested in sustainability and learning new and better ways to live and work with the earth.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We appreciate help, enjoy young people and having an excuse to visit the beautiful and interesting places Adelaide, the hills and the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia have to offer with them. Due to the corona virus all our booked overseas helpers had to cancel their flight to Australia. The first time in Years we might at times be without helpers at all. Some local Australian helpers, unable to go overseas are now filling the gap which is very nice as we used to have overseas helpers only before. Please read through all the text below and only apply if you think this is for you. We live on a 2 hectare property with the young Angas River running through. We have organic gardens with fruit trees, all sorts of berries, vegetable gardens with free roaming bantams, big layer hens, a Muscovy duck, flower beds, lawns as well as two goats on paddocks and a cute house cat. 1 of our 4 kids, Katharina, is living next door with her partner. Bernward is semi retired but still runs a sustainable architecture and building consultancy business part time from offices attached to the home. Barbara works at the local hospital. We have been accommodating helpers since 2011  through various help exchange sites. If you want a break from travelling in a non judgmental  friendly  family environment and you are open and self-motivated, this is the place for you. This is not an action or party place but rather a place to relax and get creative with great light, & scenery for painting and photography, write and get back to nature. A big woodworking workshop invites creativity. I enjoy teaching woodworking skills to our helpers with the option to learn how to fit out campervans and tiny houses. A couple of times a week we heat up our Sauna and helpers are welcome to join. Help is always needed in the garden & paddock, picking berries & apples, looking after animals, weed control, making firewood, compost, cleaning up sheds & around the place, sometimes on a sustainable building site. We live 45min by car from Adelaide, 45min from safe swimming beaches & 45min from the surf, so we are pretty central. Accommodation  for 2 in separate stone cottage & own room in the main building. All share in home cooked evening meal. Mixed diet. No smokers please. Longer stays (min 3 weeks) preferred after initial few days. Please contact us via email only.

Beautiful 300 acre farm which we run wool sheep, alpaca, house cows, horses, chickens and bees. Although we've been farming all our lives, we've only been on this farm for a few years so we are still setting up. In addition to looking after the farm and animals we are growing vegetables and setting up an orchard.  We love our farming lifestyle and are always looking to enjoy and improve our farm. Its great having people come and enjoy the farm with us and join in the lifestyle. We are keen to explore ideas such as care farming and social enterprises. We have a nice new self contained donger set up with kitchen, toilet, bathroom, aircon for you to stay in or you're welcome to bring your own caravan etc. We will be starting our lambing season soon and it would be great to have some help checking and helping the ewes and any lambs that need it. We are also really keen to plant more trees on the farm. We have some seed and the will and just need help with getting things happening this autumn and winter so they have a good chance.

We joined WWOOF as we are currently travelling around Australia for two years and we are hoping to learn more about organic farming, permaculture, biodynamics and self-sufficiency. We also want to give our children (who have mostly been raised in the city) the experience of life on a farm, a greater connection to nature, an opportunity to build greater resilience, and an appreciation for where their food comes from and the importance of supporting sustainable agricultural practices. We also love the idea of being able to give back by working in various capacities on different farms and helping to spread the message about the importance of organic, sustainable and regenerative farming, with a view to being part of the change that we'd like to see in the world.

We moved in to this 100 acre property, situated between Pemberton and Northcliffe in the South West of Western Australia, at the end of 2018. It is surrounded by stunning karri forrest and on the crossing of the Bibbulmun walking trail and the Munda Biddi cycling trail. We have a productive home orchard and veggie gardens, as well as ponds and a lake with marron, the largest freshwater crayfish in the world and pretty tasty. We have cows, sheep, chickens, and a couple of worm farms. Also a very energetic young pomeranian dog, Rupert. Plenty of water is also a bonus in this country. In addition to our rammed earth house, there are also 4 holiday cottages on the property. Most of the time, our helpers can stay in one of the cottages if it is not during busy holiday times or long weekends. Otherwise, they stay in our house in the spare room. We have spare bikes for our helpers, so that they can go and explore this beautiful area.

Projects include:

During the winter months, David is busy planting lots of trees, so you will be able to help create a lasting benefit for the future. There are trees for fodder, shelter, fruit and some for longer term timber resource.

We are experimenting with regenerative farming and improving the soil with growing a diverse mix of grasses and making and applying compost teas to increase the subsoil life. Other ongoing projects:

Constructing and maintaining permaculture gardens and orchards, picking berries and fruit. Planting native flowering plants for the bees, propagating and seeding vegetables. 

Making compost and mulching the gardens. 

Woodworking projects, ranging from making greenhouse to re-fitting kitchens in the cottages.

Chopping firewood and collecting kindling.

Large backyard garden. I have fruit trees, vegie beds, bee hive and chooks. My house is in walking distance to shopping centre, bus, leisure centre and library. I have some internet access, and bedroom has shower and basin attached. I volunteer in the Grovedale Community Garden (it has a Facebook page); in the Grovedale Community Orchard (also has a Facebook page); and buy and help with the Grovedale Veggie Box which supplies me with fresh, organic vegetables (also Facebook page). From all these places I learn more about how to sustainably garden and look after my chickens.

After 4 years of studying am very eager to get out of the city and away from theoretical concepts and into the natural world with real people working hard to solve issues around food production. I cannot wait to have my hands in the soil rather than typing away on a laptop all day. Through WWOOFing I hope to gain an understanding of the real life practise of organic farming. Given I grew up in Victoria, I am not so much interested in a cultural exchange or spending time doing 'touristy' things but rather working and learning from growers and farmers. I do hope to one day own my own land and have my own kitchen garden and so (rather selfishly) also hope to learn a few tricks of the trade for my own food production. I currently have leafy greens growing out of planter boxes in my tiny garden out the front of my unit in the city and it ain't cutting it!

We have already spent almost two years in Australia, mostly in Victoria. We like to travel a lot but we haven't been able to do so for more than a year. We enjoy meeting people, discovering the country and learn a lot of things. Nature lovers, we really enjoy walking and hiking or just being outside, taking care of animals, gardening and doing DIY. We spent one year in New Zealand five years ago and we did a lot of Wwoofing. We loved it ! Now our goal is to get a work visa in New Zealand and if we can to stay there for a while. Right now we want to go north to enjoy a pleasant winter after working for six months in the farm industry. On the way we would be happy to do some wwoofing. Looking forward to meeting you.
