    Short Property Description

    Full Property Description

    Our home is built with permaculture gardens and ducks for eggs.  It’s a delightful place which has been overgrown with food.

    Our café has permaculture gardens surrounding it.  The products we grow are then used in our café for our customers.  We are always keen to have people here also who are good with marketing.

    Cargo property, our Educational centre is amazing.  The scenery is surreal, the environment is full of wildlife and birds and the campsite and caravans make for good accommodation will living off the grid.

    There’s plenty of opportunities to gain valuable skills working with permaculture and to create new things that support the environment.  Were keen to have people who show initiative, have an eye for detail, can work independently and want to share ideas and our dream for the future.
