Skills I Want to Learn:
We decided to join WWOOF because we want to make our first months in Australia thanks to this service; We are a very willing couple. Our passion for animals will be at the heart of the activity, and this is the reason that motivated us to register on WWOOF. We are very patient and we have a good relationship with the animals. In addition, we are more than motivated to help our guests to live a super cohabitation. We are a very active couple in life, who is not afraid to work. We are sure not to disappoint you.

Our farm is located in the peaceful town of Mataranka, Northern Territory. It is surrounded by Australian wildlife and a beautiful Top End bush landscape. Here we find ourselves lucky to be in a walking distance from the famous natural thermal pool - Bitter Springs, which is so much enjoyed by both tourists and locals. And we are only three kilometres from the town centre, where there is a post office, a supermarket, restaurants, a pub and service stations. Being a remote living area, where the peaceful air is always noted and remembered by tourists, Matanka is actually not very far from a busy town - Katherine. It is only 100 km in the north-west, where we can find all kinds of necessary service, where there is the beautiful Katherine Gorge, sitting inside the Nitmiluk national park. Mataranka township is situated on the Stuart highway and 400km from Darwin, the capital city of Northern Territory. We are keen gardeners, having six years of experience and knowledge about organic gardening. Our philosophy is "to respect and work in harmony with Mother Nature." We care about what food is good for our health, how safe the environment we are living in. That's why after some years of successful organic gardening, we decided to set up this farm, where we can extend our garden into a permaculture farm. Our farm is situated in a property of nearly ten hectares of land. We have a food forest growing steadily. This is only the second year for all the fruit trees but they look very promising. We hope to have some fruits as early as next year. We have a shade garden where we grow vegetable, which we can eat fresh or frozen for the whole year. In the dry season, which is the main growing season, we can supply some fresh vegetables to the public. We have been raising chickens for eggs and pigs for meat. We are very happy with our animals as they have been providing us with their manure to serve our organic gardening purpose. We welcome wwoofers who love doing organic gardening and care for the environment. If you come here, you will join us in everyday tasks, working with the soil, propagating plants, looking after animals, tending the property... those works which help maintain and improve the quality of our environment and our lives. And here is a bonus for whom who are interested: As I am a body-care natural products maker, I can teach to make natural soaps. And I can teach how to cook some Vietnamese dishes. We provide accommodation in a separate building with a private and comfortable bedroom, shower, toilet and a fully functioning shared kitchen. We are very excited to work with you and believe we will provide you with a great experience.
