    Short Property Description

    3hrs from Melbourne Airport

    I am a retired secondary school teacher and run a small BnB business and, having moved onsite recently, I am establishing the garden and maintaining the property. I keep bees, and wish soon to increase the number of hives I have. I have hosted many Couchsurfers in my own flat, but will provide more private accommodation with the help of WWOOFers ASAP. The property is within a short distance of the Halls Gap village, and is set adjacent to the very popular Grampians National Park, famous for its mountains, wildlife and hiking and climbing. There is usually abundant opportunity for additional work in local restaurants, etc., if desired.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    I am new to this game, having come to live here permanently since retiring last year, so I am in the establishment stage. I need to look after my bees, clear up combustible material before the bushfire season sets in properly, cut and split firewood,  and plant trees, flowers and vegetables. I am environment-conscious; I compost and use no chemicals.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    I manage my property alone, and find it hard to keep up with the work involved, which also includes preparing the BnB accommodation (a picturesque A-frame house) for guests Also, through my Couchsurfing guests, I have found that I enjoy the company of young travellers, especially those from countries whose languages I speak or have an interest in. In addition to what I an gain from contact with such people, I can also offer quite a lot in terms of life experience, knowledge and goodwill. I am very concerned about environmental issues, and support organics wherever possible.
