    Short Property Description

    Originally from Konstanz /Germany I have moved in 2018 from Sydney to Franklin/Tasmania.I have bought 7 acres of land( which used to be a raspberry orchard,)back in February 2019.

    There was nothing on the land apart from a shed and an overgrown dam. 18 months and a lot of effort later, I have establish what I call my basecamp:).

    I am connected to the grid, have plenty of rainwater in my tanks, a fireplace which keeps me warm and a well equipped workshop.

    I am currently working on my cottage, so anyone with building skills is most appreciated.

    Looking after my  ever growing garden, my 6 ewes or making firewood for the next winter is always on the todo list:)


    Organic/Biological methods we use

    I am committed to organic gardening.Anyone, who can share their knowledge with me is most welcome.

    Ideally I am looking for anyone with a background in horticulture, permaculture, or landscaping.

    Alternatively, a carpenter (Zimmerfrau/Zimmermann) could give me a hand building my cottage on the hill:)

    Having worked for over 20 years on major motion pictures as a set builder there will be no shortage of stories to entertain you…….
