Short Property Description
Brent and Lisa are building a hempcrete house in Hazelbrook, a village in the mid Blue Mountains, with lots of friends and family to call on for help, but it’s a big job, and we need all the help we can get!
The building site is next door to our home, which we hope to open to WWOOFers keen to learn, and to become a central part of redefining what sensible, sustainable housing should look like!
You’ll be sharing our home with our ridiculously affectionate (once you get to know her) Kelpie cross, Thea, at least two chooks, possibly a brushturkey, and a wide variety of other native fauna.
We are close to town and the train station, many magnificent local walks, and the Lawson pool (with a spare car too), and are only 20 minutes away from Katoomba, the thriving hub of the Mountains.
We need reliable helpers to join us in providing support to our broad network of friends and vollies to mix, pour and pack the Hempcrete to form the walls, and who are interested in experiencing life in the Blue Mountains!

Why I became a WWOOF Host
Lisa and Brent have both been WWOOFers, and are uniquely placed to provide a hands on experience of hempcrete building (and greywater inspired garden creation and landscaping).
We’ve contributed to friends’ building projects in which WWOOFers have played a central role, and we are excited to now be able to offer an opportunity to WWOOFers keen to explore what sustainable building and culture looks like.
PS – Don’t be put off by bushfires, as we are not in a high risk area, and we know what to do!
