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.

We hope to achive some experiences about the Australian culture, the nature, the language or just the daily life of the Australians. Also we are very exited to see a completly diffrent way of life, on the other side of the world. The crucial point to help other families there so that we can take part in their lives is very important for us. Because everyone can benefit from it and on top of this we can exchange together. Finally this made us decide for WWOOFing.

The pandemic meant cancelling a permaculture course I was booked in to do at Krishna Village. Now that i'm a "covid-refugee" (escaped Melbourne and VIC altogether), I'm travelling Aus and asking the Universe to bring me people with the knowledge and the land/resources to teach me how to grow my own food in the most beneficial way.

We live on 100 acres in the Margaret River region, with a large orchard and kitchen garden that produces a large amount of fruit and vegetables. We focus on regenerative farming, animal ethics, cooking and food production without chemicals. Currently we have chickens, sheep, dogs and cats and human children that go to the local high school but the animal numbers change regularly. We are still growing and developing so there are plenty exciting projects to be involved with.

If I joined WWOOF it’s to learn more about working the land and to understand the techniques and benefits of organic farming on the environment and human well-being. Combining this cultural exchange in a foreign country is all the more enriching and interesting since I can help and share French culture with curious guests! I am looking for a host who want to share their daily life and their know-how of the land over a minimum month, in order to live the richest of experiences! I cant’ wait to share convivial moments with the family who will welcome me.

We have a 800 acre farm west of Airlie Beach in The Whitsundays, the gateway to The Great Barrier Reef. Ben and I have 2 boys, Archie and Royce who are 6 and 11. We are very passionate about regenerative farming, working with nature, not against it! We believe in breeding healthy, happy animals without the use of chemicals and taking care of the world underneath our feet. The farm is approved to hold workshops and day visits and we would like to set up a permaculture garden and produce healthy, nutrient dense food. We have built a beautiful timber barn to hold workshops and create an amazing space for people to come together and share wonderful experiences.

Our plan, since we bought the Philippines farm in 2016, has been to return once or twice a year to steadily improve things and plant more fruit trees in readiness for retirement in a few years time. Obviously, our plans have been upset a little in recent times and we are reconsidering our options. I started a permaculture course a couple of years ago with Geoff Lawton and have visited Zaytuna Farm for open days twice. I haven't yet completed my Permaculture Design Course, partly because of work commitments, but would really love to get it finished one day. Our intention now is to see some more of Queensland at least, maybe further afield even while learning more skills that we can implement on our farm, when and if we are able to travel to Philippines again. We are still currently working in Brisbane but I decided to join WWOOF to keep my options open in these crazy times. Our current plan would be to start travelling early in 2022. We are both looking forward to meeting like minded fellow Permies to learn as much as we can. We are both hard workers (although I have a few extra kilos to work off after sitting at a desk for too many years, so the first couple of weeks may be tough for me :-)) and I'm sure we can bring a range of skills that would benfit your situation.

We are looking to expand our knowledge, meet people, see new places and have a break. We have been working pretty long hours the last few years so before buying our own place we decided to go traveling a little and make sure we going down the right path by putting ourselves in different situations.

We like the idea of trading skills and helping out on people's properties for meals and accommodation. To take the monetary value out of something and making it so both parties get something out of an opportunity is a great idea. All we want to do is help, whether it be tidying up someone's property or helping in the garden or with the animals, and keeping ourselves busy while learning different ways of doing things.

I have 2 reasons why join WWOOF. First, I got a chance to go abroad. Now, I am studying about related to agriculture. Actually, Japan and Australia have same introduced spices “The large earth bumblebee”. They give us benefits but have an impact on the ecological. I want to know how impression people in Australia have for this bumblebee, how many this bumblebee effect on agriculture, how work with this bumblebee. Second, I’m interested in how to prevent pests and disease on organic farm. Organic farms rate so low and organic vegetables price so high in Japan. I often watch on TV about organic farms in overseas. I want to know about organic farms are how cultivate, what opinion from the public, why could be mainstream in Australia. I’ll experience in organic farms and get knowledge to help make sustainable agriculture in Japan. I love farm work with cheerful farmer!! Please join me with you in your farms in Australia.

Dianna, Alasdair and their three children manage a 1/2 acre bio-dynamic market garden plot on their 18 acre property. 10km south of Bendigo, the quiet property is surrounded by box ironbark forest. They completed their owner built mud brick house about four years ago. Alasdair has been running growing trials in the market garden for two years while the full Demeter certification is gained. He now feels he can hone in on a smaller number of crops. They keep Dolly the pig, for compost making and the odd litter of piglets. The Turnbull family are active members of the Bendigo community, so although the property is a small farm, it feels like quite a normal integrated part of Bendigo life and is not far from town.
