Short Property Description
Welcome to the beautiful hilly town of Bridgetown. Our property is called Myrtle May Farm. It’s a walk/ cycle, or jog away from cafes, local art and music events and all the things that make an amazing community. Our property is a Permiculture Food Forest with medicinal and culinary herbs, fruit trees, vege raised beds and beautiful ornamental gardens that lift your spirits. For the last 18 years we have hosted hundreds of wwoofers and most have stayed longer….loving the positive vibe and all the arts and Permaculture philosophy we practice here. We create low waste solutions and get creative on the way. Accommodation is a very warm n cosy caravan with its own Japanese styled pagoda. We continually renovate it to make it a special for all travellers and friends.
In the next few years we are building a yoga studio and creating a bird attracting garden with natives and proteas. With an abundance of produce we teach wwoofers to come up with creative culinary treats and have had minor miracles produced in the kitchen!
Art is a huge emphasis on our property as well as music.

Why I became a WWOOF Host
From travelling exploring alternate community living.
Enjoy teaching others alternate low waste, frugal hedonism, declutter and organising, less is more daily living ideas. Community is important to me and we often volunteer in many community groups , helping wwoofers get to know others in the local community.
