    Farming methods


    Short Property Description

    1200 square m block in Perth, Tasmania.
    Established fruit trees.
    Some herbs and flowers.
    This land was a paddock with a few sheep on it when I moved here ten years ago. I have slowly been establishing a garden/ orchard over that time. No herbicides or pesticides have been used. My chooks, worm farm and compost heaps provide nutrients.
    I have a one bedroom unit in the back yard. You can check this out on AIRBNB as “Amino”s Garden Retreat” on the site.
    This is not a farm. It is in a small town(Perth), 17km south of Launceston. There is a regular bus service to Launceston and Hobart. 10 minute drive to Launceston Airport.
    This is an ideal place to stay while you are planning your next move. It is located centrally in Tassie… 2 hour drive to either Hobart, Cradle Mt, Freycinet or Lake St Claire. One hour to Liffey Falls, Narawntapu or Ben Lomond .
    Work will include general gardening with some landscaping and establishing new garden beds.
    I love cooking and meeting people. I am a part time high school teacher and have worked with Tas Parks and Wildlife. I look forward to meeting you, hearing your stories and sharing my local knowledge.
