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.

Looking to do a bit of travel while learning more and hopefully contributing in some way. We enjoy our little patch of garden at home but know we have a lot more to learn. As keyboard jockeys working from home, we miss getting our hands dirty and working with others.

Hello! We're a couple living in the beautiful Tamar Valley of Tasmania. We've been living here for about two years, enjoying the great surroundings of Tamar River/kanamaluka. Our property lies directly on Stony Brook, a small stream that enters the main river. We get regular visitors like black swans, egrets, pelicans and eagles. We've also seen echidna's on the property. We have a number of free-range animals, including chickens, turkeys and alpacas. We also have our two dogs, Bella and Meesha. In addition, we grow vegetables and fruit in our garden, using organic techniques to get tomatoes, zucchini, nectarines, and herbs, amongst other plants. There are lots of things to do each day to maintain the property, garden and animals. We're pretty outgoing, taking the chance to visit the best spots Tasmania has to offer. We've seen a lot, but there's plenty for us still to see! We have kayaks and camping gear, which you'll be able to use. We live in a small village called Blackwall, about 25 minutes drive from Launceston. We're only a short walk from the shops in nearby Exeter or the cafes in Gravelly Beach. We're even within walking distance of a local winery. It's just close enough to conveniences without the hustle and bustle of a big town.

I would love to learn more about permaculture living in relation to Australian native plants, regenerative agriculture and urban/peri-urban food production. I'm keen to get stuck into a specific project or just to help with the day-to-day running of a farm/garden. I am also planning on building a tiny house in the next couple of years, so am keen to get some basic construction experience.

See Full Property Details for a link. Welcome, we are a 4 year old permaculture farm located near Yeppoon looking for people who are keen to learn about all things permaculture and who have a passion for sustainability. Our long-term goal is to create a self-sustaining community on the farm and we have made a huge amount of progress in our first few years of set up and operation.

The property includes a number of other sustainable features. We want to be clear with you that you will be joining a working farm where we are trying to create a permaculture-based business model that can actually support itself without relying on outside philanthropy. This is a huge challenge in itself and requires a lot of hard work such as weeding, mulching, prepping garden beds, digging holes & fencing but we must remember we are in the foundational stages of creating something that will last and that has already touched many people's lives. We will do our best to teach you as much as we can about Permaculture and about the different aspects of our operation as we go along as well. The position is well suited to people who want hands-on experience growing their own chemical-free food and learning how to create a dynamic eco-business model that includes tours, events, a paddock to plate restaurant and education.

Many people come for a few weeks and end up staying for 6 months or more. Volunteers get the unique experience of what it is like living in a small community. We see ourselves as one big family on the farm. Everyone is welcome to contribute equally. We live by the permaculture ethics of land care, people care and fair share.  Wherever possible, we reduce our waste, use available resources and eat directly from the garden. We are also now offering a 6 Month (Unpaid) Internship Program that will see participants rotate around a number of different departments of our business and receive one-on-one mentoring on how to set up and run a dynamic eco-business operation.

A Paradise of food species from all over, Bamboos, Kayaking, fermenting, sour dough, wicking beds, these are just some of the things awaiting you when you come to Bucca Haven, our 5 acres of developing organic food forest. We have almost 100 bamboo clumps, all mature & provide endless mulch, shade & timber material for all sorts of projects. It is called the thinking mans timber. We grow an abundant and varied amount of food plants all year round, we can use anything from 25 to 30 different species in our green salad, none of which is lettuce! We have in excess of 150 different species of food plants from across the sub tropical regions of the earth, & are always on the lookout for more variety. We enjoy a sunny, warm to hot climate, 20c to 38c except in winter which for us in June thru to Sept which could be as low as 7c overnight to 27c daily. We love good food, healthy food, home grown food. So if you like to cook, great! When the dam is full, it is our swimming hole. When the dam is low, we go 6k to the Kolan River for a cool swim, or Kayak. We are 31km from Bundaberg & 27 km from Gin Gin. We can collect you from either town if you do not have your own transport. We are a Christian family, in our 60's, still very active, gardening, swimming, kayaking & socialising. We both have a good sense of humour. But we need you to speak English as we don't have any other language. If you can read English too that is even better.

First joined in 2018 then did a spell on Workaway for a year overseas. Great experiences all round. I've also used couchsurfing dot com and found it amazing the people you can meet and the kind of world we live in where all these things are possible. I've always volunteered since childhood so this is just a continuation of that idea about working together and giving what we can.

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!

Belted Galloway cattle farm in the southern highlands. We milk these cows, too - they love to be patted. We also raise chickens for breeding and eggs, have a Permaculture veggie garden, and have just planted hazelnut trees. We are at our next stage of bushfire recovery having completed fencing and felling some trees. There are many tasks still to do even though it has rained and looks green. We need to expand the permaculture areas, constant weeding, pruning fruit trees, planting bare rooted vines and transplanting fruit trees. We also maintain a small wildlife reserve on part of the farm and look at grasses to make sure that the wombats we co-exist with have enough to eat. Volunteer tasks include feeding chickens, tending veggie garden, moving cattle to strip graze, milking cows (in non drought situations), weeding, collecting firewood, composting & worm farming. Accomodation for 2 within our home. Shared meals, all cook together. Mixed diet. Vegetarians & vegans catered for. Children b.a. No smoking on property. Initial stay 12-14 days. Longer stays negotiable.
