Claire and Brian have retired to a bush block, a little less than 100 acres in the Lockyer Valley in Queensland. We have owned and lived on the property between working away for about 20 years. Now we want to continue to work on restoration and regeneration of the land. Claire is a beekeeper and potter and Brian, a retired engineer, is developing a small goat herd to assist with weed management on the property. We are interested in sustainable living, organic and biodynamic practices, but are very much beginners in the field. Brian is developing fencing, shelter and watering points etc for the animals & sustainable irrigation for plants and trees. Claire is developing a compost system, a rose (for essential oils) and herb garden and plantings in the apiary for the bees. As we have relocated to this section of the property the pottery and gardens are being re-established, so there is a lot of digging, weeding and planting to assist with. We do not require hands-on help with the bees, but assistance constructing supers, frames and extracting honey and processing honeycomb will be appreciated. We work to a weekly and seasonal timetable and would need help for 5 hours per day three days per week. We have an Air BnB cottage on the property and WWOOFers would be accommodated in this, all meals, internet, electricity, water etc included. We envisage a couple, with no children or pets. There is no public transport. We are a 15 minute drive from town so WWOOFers would need a car. We have one meat meal, one chicken meal and one fish meal per week. Breakfast, lunch and other dinners are vegetarian. For health reasons we do not smoke, nor can permit smoking on the property and volunteers Must Be Double Vaccinated.  Illegal drug taking will not be countenanced.

We have a passion for travel and meeting people, and decided that we wanted to challenge ourselves in a way to push ourselves out of our comfort zones. When we came across the opportunities that WWOOF provided, it was a perfect fit! We loved the idea of slow travel while gaining insight into the life of the farming families across Australia at the same time. We are passionate about the environment and sustainable living and are eager to learn more about this lifestyle through the eyes of the people that work to put food on our tables. By joining WWOOF we hope to meet a diverse range of new people and become a part of their lifestyle while offering a helping hand wherever we can. Through our work and travel, we aim to learn a range of practical skills that we can apply to our everyday lives and into the future all while forming lasting relationships.

We joined in hope that we'd be able to make contact with like minded hosts that implement either (or all) organic, bio-dynamic or permaculture principles on their respective farms and plan out a year or two worth of experiences across Australia. From the travels and experiences throughout different parts of the country we'd like to have a good understanding of where we'd like to put down roots for our own permacultre farm. It is also very much about exposing our son to many and various life experiences afar of our current modern suburb lifestyle. New lifelong friendships would be an excellent outcome too 🙂

Virtue Farm is a 33 acre property overlooking K'Gari (Fraser Island), and includes 27 acres of remnant forest which will never be developed. The forest is an oasis for bird life and other animals and is great for walking.  We are 10 minutes from Hervey Bay and 10 minutes from the K'Gari (Fraser Island) barge that leaves from River Heads. We have an existing permaculture garden and are upscaling to small farm size. Our house block is 1.5 acres and backs on to the farm land.  We are in the beginning stages of becoming a commercially viable farm, so you will be helping to establish our property. We ask for five hours of volunteering per day, per person, depending upon the type of work and we can be very flexible in this regard. This could include farm work, vegetable patch work, caring for the chooks, moving small saplings, rock picking, planting, mulching, weeding, harvesting, fencing, land clearing and chopping wood and general home maintenance. If you have any specific skill base or interest we are open to negotiation. In return, we will supply an evening meal shared with us and you can prepare your own breakfasts and lunch from what we supply. Accommodation  for 4 in a granny flat downstairs, we have 1 room with two king single beds - can be joined to make a king, 1 room with a queen size bed. We can accommodate singles and couples. Mixed diet and a mix of vegetarian and meat based meals.  Whilst we have some capacity to cater for vegans, we will have to learn from you to assist us to cater for your needs and are willing to do so within limits. Internet access is available close to the house. Virtue Farm acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land, the Butchulla people, where we work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. While you are here, you should make time to go to K'Gari (Fraser Island). We are very flexible and happy to work around dates that you can access which are cheaper for you. Many of our volunteers have found great deals on the “Book Me” website. You would be welcome to leave your property here where it would be safe if you do choose to visit. Additionally, we strongly suggest that you plan for at least a one night overnight stay on K'Gari (Fraser Island); many of our volunteers have done the day tour and loved it, but all say they wished they’d stayed for longer as they felt like they only had a glimpse and not enough time to experience all it has to offer. Those people who stayed for two or three nights seem to have had the best experiences. We have some back packs and camping gear for volunteers to use (for a small fee to cover wear and tear) if they want to do the longer treks and hikes on Fraser Island. We are also aware that some companies do dual booking between the Whit Sundays and Fraser Island and they have been both popular and economical. As long as you book your trip to Fraser Island from Hervey Bay we are happy to drive you to where you need to be. If you book from Rainbow Beach, then you will have to arrange your own transport as it is about an hour and a half away. We have two bicycles and helmets which we are happy to share so you can spend a day or afternoon in Hervey Bay exploring and experiencing all that our fabulous community has to offer. There is no public transport to our home, but we are happy to drive into Hervey Bay so you can see our beautiful beaches, piers, parks and lifestyle. There are some lovely walks in the remnant forest on our block and it is always lovely to watch the kangaroos that visit daily. The volunteers that we have had so far have enjoyed their time with us and have been happy to join in with our family and extended family. You will stay in the two bedroom flat downstairs, with its own bathroom, kitchenette with microwave, fridge, toaster and kettle , dining area and lounge room. We have one room with a queen sized bed and one with two king singles. There is a TV, DVD player and some board games, card, paints and mindful colouring books. We also have heaps of Earth Garden magazines and similar to browse.

It seems like a better way of working while travelling than the standard way of finding work, having that monetary relationship, worrying about where to live, trying to negotiate wages and all the other humdrum stuff. It sounds like the hosts are willing to share their knowledge, know how and experiences and be friendly at the same time. A very welcome change.

I joined WWOOF quite simply to  learn and experience as much as I can.  The idea of trying to live a little more sustainably has been something I've been interested in for many years, and now with a little more time available to me I am ready to dip my hands (and the rest of me) into the world of WWOOFing. I've always maintained a suburban vege patch, composted and recycled whatever I could and eaten as organically as possible. Reading about it doesn't work for me, I need to be hands on for things to really sink in. I so enjoy being and working in the outdoors and getting my hands dirty, Being productive makes me happy. I may not have any WWOOFer experience to bring yet but I bring a whole lot of life experience, a willingness to work hard and a total enjoyment of meeting new people.

I have long thought about getting out onto a property myself, building a little house, having chicken's a BIG veggie garden and trying all sorts of different thing like sheep and goats- cheese-making, bees, water power projects- the list is endless. But I dont have practical experience. I'd love to come to your farm, help you in your endeavours and learn from you.
