City/Town: Lenswood
Farming Methods: Permaculture
Accommodation Type: In Our Home
We are a family of four (Eddie, Prue, Edith (9) and Maggie (6) 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 vineyards and wineries. Our property comprises a small orchard, vegetable gardens, raspberry patch, chicken run, dam and cottage gardens. We follow permaculture principles and practice organic farming methods. Farm methods include feeding our soils with compost and weed teas, mulching, crop rotation, growing flowers to attract bees, butterflies and other beneficials, sheet mulching to combat weeds and planting green manures. We have 3 bee colonies, four chickens, a dog and soon we hope to introduce a couple sheep to the property. Eddie has completed a Permaculture Design Certificate and currently we are implementing changes and nurturing our property to become more self reliant, resilient and productive. 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; Continuing the transforming of the old orchard to a food forest Enclosing the chicken run for fox protection Planting, weeding, pruning, composting Nurturing our vegetable, herb and tea gardens Harvesting and preserving food Caring for our pets (chickens, bees and Harry) Accommodation 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 very comfortable double bed. We have a second bathroom on the main level of the house for guests to 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. WWOOFers own vehicle would be helpful for exploring the local area (highlights include forest walks, wineries, water holes and local townships). We ask WWOOFers to volunteer Monday-friday, roughly 6 hours a day. In the warmer months we like to start our days early and finish early. Weekends are reserved for relaxation. If you have your own vehicle the options are endless, if not there are a couple nature reserves within walking distance from our house and a cellar door across the road. Guests are welcome to join in any family outings that may be happening also. We are social people who enjoy meeting others, learning about other cultures 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. Currently we are searching for an individual who is social,  hardworking and eager to get their hands dirty. An interest in permaculture or organic growing would be good. Some independent working man be required. We offer a one week stay, the option to stay longer can be discussed during this first week. We look forward to hearing from you. Prue, Eddie, Edith and Maggie (and Harry)

City/Town: Medowie
Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home, Caravan, Tent
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.
