Short Property Description

Our home, in the township of Daylesford in Central Victoria, is on a small block at the back of another home. Our house is only 10 minutes walk from the shopping centre, library, outdoor swimming pool (in summer)  pubs, bars, and local Sunday Market.  We are setting up a small permaculture garden and orchard. Learn about permaculture and gardening by the moon. We prefer a couple or 2- 4 friends who don’t mind sharing one room.

You will have your own en-suite bathroom, TV and Wi-Fi. Volunteering is for 4-5 hours in the morning and includes compost making, building new garden beds, fencing, digging, weeding, pruning, mulching or landscaping..

You may like to go bush-walking on days off, or attend the local Market.

Public transport (Train with connecting bus) from Southern Cross Station to Daylesford. We can pick you up at the bus stop at Daylesford. Stays of approx 4-10 days  Friday and Sunday off.

We would love to hear from you!
