Short Property Description
We have a beautiful 40 acre horse agistment property, veggie garden & fruit trees and approx. 5 acres bush. 3 min drive to surf beach, bay beach & Inverloch town or 10 min drive to Wonthaggi, a larger town. Push bikes available. We are very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle and hope that our WWOOFers are also interested in living sustainably and learning, and sharing knowledge of this. There are almost always wallabies at our farm and if you are lucky you may see kangaroos, echidnas, wombats & occasional koalas. Volunteering may include harvesting, food collection, composting, mulching, hay carting, weeding, fencing, planting, food preservation. Sometimes there is some work caring for horses: often all the work is in the garden and paddock maintenance, as the horses are mainly looked after by their owners. Accommodation for up to 3 in our home, although we usually prefer 2. Shared meals, cook together. We eat a healthy, sustainable diet. Bron is vegan and while Ray eats most foods, many meals are vegan or vegetarian. Vegetarians & vegans catered for. No children, no smoking, all stays negotiable on application. Please let us know your available dates when you apply and the length of time that you would like to WWOOF here. (1 to 2 weeks preferred).
Organic/Biological methods we use
We farm organically and sustainably. Manure is mainly harrowed back into the paddocks. In small paddocks it is collected and composted. Of course, we compost all organic waste on the farm. Most of the fruit and vegetables we eat are from our farm, from produce swaps and other local providers.

Why I became a WWOOF Host
We love meeting people from all over the world and wwoofing is a way to do this without travelling overseas. We love sharing our knowledge with others, such as farming skills and cooking skills. We love sharing food. We love to have our mind opened to new ideas. Meeting wwoofers gives us the ability to do all these things.
