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.

Qdos is on 3 acres surrounded by Great Otway National park with loads of wild and bird life, a short downhill walk in the township and beach. We grow organic produce. Our kitchen gardens raise heirloom seedlings in the hothouse for the table. Work includes developing compost nutritional soils & caring for a large orchard, general property maintenance.  We keep free range chickens and have our own bees, all to enhance the quality of our foods & sustainability. Because we are essentially an Art venue, with regularly changing exhibitions, musical events and art workshops, wwoofas are often involved with 'arty' activities.  Longer stays are better for us. Your accommodation is a self contained bed sitter for 2 (singles may have to share the space) with a big sundeck overlooking the our lilypond and sculpture park, we generally eat together all meals are provided. Once a year (in the colder months) the ceramic studio gets busy for the annual wood fired general around August. So if your are interested in pottery and wood firing kilns you will enjoy this.

Skills I Want to Learn: Organic Practices, Permaculture/Biodynamics, Biodynamics practices and techniques
I joined WWOOF because a few years ago I realized that I didn't want to be a Chef all my life even though I love my work it doesn't sound right to me in the actual state of the world. I believe that the way things are right now is wrong and not going anywhere (capitalism, bullshit job, ignored climate crisis, ...) and I don't want to be part of this or raise kids in such environment. That is why my purpose is to create a community that could sustain itself durably with energy, food production, shared skills and knowledge. I believe that in order to achieve this I need to discover the ways, methods and get inspiration from others. WWOOFing seems to be ideal in that way.

Situated just north of Newcastle on 1 acre, we are a suburban market garden applying biointensive and permaculture principles. We run 30 x 10m raised garden beds growing chemical free seasonal vegetables that we sell to private clients and the fortnightly Maitland Earth Market. Our farming principles are based on The Market Gardener Jean-Martin Fortier Master Class education and permaculture courses from Milkwood and Limestone Permaculture. We are a family of 5 with 3 children under twelve. Our children are home schooled and are required to help on the farm as part of their education. When we are not farming we spend time our time 4WDing and walking local beaches, camping in the Barrington Tops mountains, bush walking Australia's top 100 walks, and boating and fishing inshore and offshore. Accommodation available is in a private bedroom with a double bed, cupboard and a personal bathroom and toilet.

Day's Walk Farm is located just 22km from the Melbourne CBD and Melbourne International Airport by Car - it is a real Certified Organic suburban farm - though it's tucked away in a quieter part of the valley, where a cool river runs lined with red gums. I grow mixed vegetables organically and I am also part of a team that grows young farmers - see farmerincubator.org I have been at this farm since March 2015 and farming is one step at a time - a lot of work! So I could do with a hand. This is a great place for someone who enjoys working outside and cooking with a range of fresh farm produce. Work includes planting seedlings, weeding, whipper snipping, propagating, picking, some building projects and market garden work. We are currently at our peak production of the year, so it's definitely an exciting time to come and experience summer on a pumping commercial market garden. Over the next month or two you can look forward to lots of planting, picking tomatoes and meditative weeding! Accommodation is quite basic on the farm, in an old shed converted into an apartment or a cosy caravan. We use a bush bucket shower and compost toilet. The bus stop is a short walk up the hill, and using the bus and the train you can connect with Melbourne independently on your days off. The internet is accessible via hotspot for emails, for big downloads though you will have to stroll down to one of the two local libraries. (We can't get broadband internet here in the valley, yet...) I ask volunteers to work five days, taking two off. Work stops at lunch time, so the afternoons are free. However, there are also lots of books to read during your down-time, under the trees by the river. We recently bought a few board games too and we're currently installing a shed cinema and ceiling suspended day bed. I regularly get on the mat to do some yoga. Market garden work is quite physical so these activities help to balance life here. Shared meals and cooking using fresh produce from the market garden, mixed diet. No children. No smoking inside. Initial stay 2 weeks, longer stays negotiable. Cannot take WWOOFers in the middle of winter. If you aspire to be a farmer then this is good place to check out. Staying at Day's Walk Farm is certainly an adventure, not a picnic! Thanks ! ! !

This farm offers an exciting opportunity to work on the water in a calm river estuary with an experienced boat operator. In your spare time, you can take our kayak around the river, surf at nearby beaches or go on a hike through bushland with amazing views and wildlife. For those without their own transport we have bicycles to ride to the local shops at Greenwell Point. The nearest town, Nowra, is a 30 minute bus ride and offers a cinema, cafes/restaurants and shopping. Accomodation includes a comfortable, fully self-contained cabin for up to 2 people on site, separate to our home. Food is provided (vegetarian/vegan can be accommodated) to be heated by WWOOFers or prepared in own accommodation. The farm is accessible by train from Sydney to Bomaderry train station, where we will pick you up from the station and take you to the farm.

We joined wwoof because we are willing to learn about organic farms. We have very little experience in farm jobs and it is something that interests us a lot. We like to get our hands dirty ! We hope to get to know the Australian culture and the people that welcome us.

We had long had in mind the fact of playing abroad, but we wanted an organization that reflected our convictions. So we discovered the Wooffing community which directly attracted us more and more. We wanted to go abroad without taking an expensive organization that doesn't necessarily have a purpose, unlike Wooffing. Being able to help people from other countries, to discover new cultures, to understand and learn new things and ways of life, completely fulfilled our idea of travel. We have always loved Australia, it is majestic landscapes, the wild animal and plant fauna, its different communities living side by side. Moreover, we did not want to be in an organization where we only learn the language of the country without necessarily understanding its culture and way of life, we wanted to be as close as possible to the people, understand how they live, better adapt to the customs of the country and really understand the place where we will live for a while. Finally, we did not want to arrive in a country, learn only the language, enjoy and leave without making ourselves useful. We really wanted to be there to help the community to be in an exchange of languages, customs and moments shared together in the respect and protection of our environment.
