Our farm is in a beautiful valley called Goldie, just east of Lancefield in the Macedon Ranges. We are near Wilimee Mooring, an Indigenous green stone quarry and one of the oldest in the world. Our farm is 70 acres; half bush and the other half olive grove, veggie garden, chook pen, creek regeneration, paddocks, house and dams. Melbourne is just over an hour away.

We are on 20+ acres of land backing on to a national forest, within walking distance to the beach and river. We are establishing a permaculture / eco-farm experience, that incorporates living in an environmentally responsible manner, working with recycled material, earth building techniques and establishing a self sustaining permaculture forest.
  • We have recycled 13 caravans, so they make up accommodation for guests and us. We plan on using this place to support community groups too.
Our plan is to develop this facility while we work with people and teach them how to incorporate some of these techniques into their own lives. We are in a town of 3500 people, 30 kms south of Nowra and 32kms north of Ulladulla. We are 2.5 hours drive from Sydney, 2.5hrs from Canberra, 9 hours from Melbourne and 13 hrs from Brisbane. .We have guests who use our place as a base to discover the South Coast and all the national parks and forests in the area. I come from a big Italian family, I am a qualified Carpenter and Builder, who is managing this project-developing a dream I have had since I was little. My other jobs are too many to list and I don't want to brag. Arthur is the Electrician/ Carpenter/ Builder/ Machine Operator/ Miracle Worker, who makes it all happen. Our 3 dogs (Missy, Molly and Tilly) are our Branch Managers, Work Site Inspectors, Customer Welcoming Committee and Alternative Therapy Personnel.

I'm coming to Australia for a month to visit a friend in Melbourne and to do some solo travel. I have previous WWOOF-ing experience at a biodynamic vineyard in Argentina. My month long stay was such a rewarding experience it has changed how I travel. My hope is to spend 2 or so weeks (this is flexible) with a farm as a way to see a new part of Australia.

I have always wanted to travel to Australia; now is the right time to do so! I look forward to learning how to live off the land through sustainable farming practices, animal tending, and general homestead maintenance. I am equally excited for the cultural exchange opportunity to forge genuine human connections in day-to-day life with my host farms. Cheers!

We are a family of four (Eddie, Prue, Edith (6) and Maggie (3) living on a 2 acre property in beautiful Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills. Lenswood is well known for its apple, pear and cherry orchards as well as a growing number of wineries. Our property comprises a small orchard, vegetable garden, raspberry patch, chicken run, dam and cottage gardens. We practice organic farming methods, we do not use synthetic chemicals or fertilisers, we feed our soil using our own compost and weed teas, we rotate beds, we grow flowers amongst our vegetables to attract bees and beneficial insects, we have 2 bee colonies and a small flock of chickens. Eddie is studying Permaculture Design and we intend to redesign of our property on completion of this course. WWOOFers will have the opportunity to assist with projects on the farm as well as general property duties and maintenance. Upcoming projects and tasks include;
  • Transforming the orchard to a food forest Building a garden shed Planting, weeding, pruning, composting Expanding our herb/tea garden Harvesting and preserving food from the garden Caring for our pets (currently chickens and bees)
Accomodation is in a converted wine cellar on the lower level of our house. The room is dark but stays very nice and cool. The room has a double bed so best suited to a couple or good friends who don't mind sharing. We have a second bathroom on the main level of the house for WWOOFers use. Our property runs solely on rain water so guests are asked to have short showers (personally we aim for 3 minutes each). All meals will be shared and help with food preparation and cleaning up after meals would be appreciated. We mainly eat vegetarian meals and can cater for all dietary needs. There is no public transport in Lenswood. There is a bus service to Uraidla (10 minutes drive from Lenswood) and we are happy to pick up WWOOFers and also drop off at the end of their stay. Woofers own vehicle would be helpful for exploring the local area (highlights include forest walks, wineries, water holes and local townships). Ideally WWOOFers would arrive Sunday afternoon, work roughly 5-6 hours Monday to Friday and have the weekend to explore the beautiful Adelaide Hills before departing on Sunday. However we are flexible and can work with WWOOFers to find a mutually suitable arrangement. We are social people who enjoy meeting people and sharing experiences. Our children are very energetic and love having visitors (be prepared to be very popular). We enjoy a glass of wine with some nice food and good company. We look forward to meeting people from across Australia and around the world.

Working on an organic and sustainable farm is a dream of mine. I grew up in a metropolitan area, and was very out of touch with the food system. In college, I began to learn about farming, and the problems with the American Agricultural System from abuse of animals to inaccessibility of healthy options to food waste. Learning about the food system changed my life. I changed my diet, met some local farmers, and starting growing a bit of food and herbs myself! This September, I'll be starting as a procurement consultant in Atlanta. Before I dive into this opportunity, I want to get hands-on sustainable agricultural experience, spend time outdoors, be physically exhausted, and get dirt-y! Not only do I hope to learn and grow and work a lot personally, but also I plan to bring this with me into the corporate procurement world. I want to help businesses see the benefits of buying locally and sustainably.
