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.

Broken Nose Vanilla is Australia's no.1 vanilla plantation, and is located in Tropical Far North Queensland. We are committed to sustainable, organic farming principles, and use no chemicals - no pesticides, no chemical fertilisers. Apart from our vanilla orchids, we also have mangosteens, carambola, breadfruit, mango and rambutan trees which are all productive. We also have a small commercial kitchen in which we produce a range of artisan products for sale both in Australia and overseas. Our vanilla products have won many prizes, and our vanilla flavour profiles are excellent!

We’ve been travelling around the south coast for a little while as nomads and are looking forward to getting to know a place more deeply, to build new relationships with the land and people here. After trying to grow food in the heat of Katherine, we’re looking forward to learning what works well on Yuin country. We enjoy learning new skills and sharing some of our own. Please note, we need access to mobile reception and/or Wi-Fi, as Valerie (and myself occasionally) does casual work online, and we are both looking for additional paid work.

We joined WWOOF because we want to reduce our environmental impact and try to live our lives in a sustainable way. We are both quite practical but we would like to offer our time and energy to learn new skills from our hosts that we can take with us in our journey to becoming more self-sufficient. And of course we look forward to visiting all the places in Australia we've not yet explored!

We have not been effected by fires or floods and fortunately we have  had some rain since the New Year which has made the farming outlook in this area much more positive than it was late last year. The Pines is a 1000 acre holistically managed grazing property. We run a commercial Angus breeding herd & a 1st cross Ewe flock.(sheep) We also have horses which we use to muster stock. We are very proud of our property and are constantly endeavouring to improve it and our animal's welfare. We also make an effort to include the native flora & fauna that live on our land. We are situated on the Central Tablelands of NSW 25 km from our largest town Blayney) & 5 km from the small village of Neville. We are reachable by train from Sydney (Blayney station) and are just west of the Blue Mountains for those interested in bush walking, hiking etc.

"Namoorook" circa 1895, is a beautifully restored homestead on 71 acres of farm land approximately 1.5 kms from Leongatha and 130kms from Melbourne. Adopting regenerative agricultural practices, Namoorook is a mixed farming operation with livestock, organic fruit orchard and vegetable gardens.

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.

City/Town: Elmhurst
Farming Methods: Permaculture
Accommodation Type: In Our Home
2 acres in tiny town being slowly converted from old grazing land into a bountiful and beautiful food production garden. Animals include milking goats and rabbits, with ducks, chooks and bees on the way. That’s the goats that get milked, not the rabbits! I am learning about permaculture and soil rehabilitation as I go so it is a work in progress and I am open to suggestions. I have an excellent reference library pertaining to food production, preservation, and animal husbandry. The property is a half hour drive from the nearest largish town and as such is pretty isolated despite being on the outskirts of the village. There are plenty of interesting places to visit locally for hiking or climbing. The veggie garden is always being expanded as fast as I can create proper soil conditions for growth. I am an easy going relatively laid back middle aged retired female looking to keep creating something beautiful and practical and I find that I need a set of strong young legs to assist in my goals of a sustainable micro farm. I am really interested in composting techniques and my hope is to leave the land better than I found it for future generations to enjoy. I have German shepherd dogs and they are inside/outside dogs so any visitors must be comfortable with large slobbery hounds underfoot. According to my son I am not the best cook so be warned. However, I believe that opinion to based on his city habits of ordering in from a variety of home delivery services available in Melbourne so I can see how my cooking would be boring in that light.  I am proficient enough in nutritious foods like lentils, curry (I love curries!) seasonal veggie soups with home made spiced chicken broth, spag bowl and various stir fry vegetable dishes.  And omelettes.  Seasonal organic food will be available from the garden and I like to experiment with what I produce. Sometimes meal times can be a bit weird but what’s life without a bit of challenge! You are more than welcome to teach me your favourite dishes. Hopefully the local markets will reopen soon in regional Victoria so I can access supplemental fresh farm produce again.

I think WWOOF is a good way to make yourself useful and get to know about permaculture, local life, people and the country at the same time. I got very much interested into permaculture during my first WWOOF stay and I would be happy to start my own veggie/fruit garden when I get back home.

We are nestled at the base of the Great Dividing Range north east of Toowoomba, Queensland on 10 acres of sandy loam creek flat, but we also use a further 32 acres across the creek. We raise cows, goats and chickens through managed grazing while developing a market garden for flowers, vegetables and fruit using no-till, organic, regenerative approaches. Adjoining our sandstone house is a granny flat which looks out on the ornamental gardens and pool. We also have a table tennis table, a pool table and an air hockey table for recreational activities. We have a fire pit for cool evenings outside and a set of swings for visiting kids. A spare vehicle may be available for trusted guests. Across the road is the community sports ground and picnic area with basketball and tennis courts, playing oval and children's play equipment. The mountains to the west and north across the creek are enjoyed for the walks, bike riding tracks and the magnificent views they afford.
