    Short Property Description

    Hi all, we’re Will and Bess, a young couple running a sustainable timber farm in Far North Qld. We’re in our late 20’s and love hosting WWOOFers on our jaw droopingly beautiful patch of rainforest in Far North Queensland.

    We’re located 1.5 hours from Cairns (to the south west). We’re BUILDING an eco-home at the moment and seeking assistance! See below 🙂

    In terms of days and hours we’re really flexible depending on what suits you. We love to be social, cook, hang out and go bush walking and there’s always different friends visiting and coming up so it’s not all work and no play I assure you! We usually work Mon – Fri but it is really variable.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    Aside from our amazing rainforest we have an organic garden to eat out of and a mini orchard of mixed fruit trees. We have chickens for eggs and eat a lot from our own garden. We’re more than happy to teach the knowledge we have on tending and maintaining an edible garden.

    Greenhouse: we have a greenhouse where we are propogating native rainforest seedlings to be planted back into the property (yay!). Bess is a trained ecologist/biologist and is more than excited to share knowledge on looking after a mini nursery.

    Living off grid: our property is totally off the grid meaning we are self sufficient in power (solar) and water and have no phone line (there is some mobile reception). Our actual house is a converted shed (it’s very cosy through) we’re happy to send photos. We love living off grid and have done most of the preparation for this ourselves and love to show others how they could do the same.
