Short Property Description
Camp Hill Farm is located in the hills behind Mt Wellington close to Hobart. Extensive organic vegetable gardens need daily work and attention. This is a quiet and peaceful farm where a diverse and abundant wildlife and birdlife share the farm ranging from here all the way through to the foothills of Mt Wellington.
Full Property Description
Camp Hill Farm has large areas planted out with Tasmanian native trees and shrubs ultimately to enhance the lifestyle of the wildlife. They need a lot of care to get established so here I appreciate your help in the vegetable and wildlife gardens.
Weeds come in, I do not spray with poisons so a day may be spent wandering around with a digging tool and a wheel barrow.
There is also a straw bale house to finish so any skills there are welcome.
Extensive vegetable and fruit gardens fenced to exclude the wildlife provide a beautiful peaceful environment to work 4-5 hours per day with 2 days off to explore. It is preferred you stay for 3-7 days or longer, meals are predominantly vegetarian, accommodation is either in the family home or the “bus”.
One person or a couple are welcome. I can pick you up from a nearby bus stop.
Organic/Biological methods we use
No chemical sprays have been used here for over 25 years. Mulching rather than digging in the vegetable garden.
