The Experience

We’ve recently built a wonderfully energy-efficient passive solar house, complete with off-grid solar for all our energy needs, rainwater collection for all our water needs, and a worm farm waste management system for natural black and grey water processing. We’re now working to progress the landscaping aspects of our project. We’d be very appreciative of a helping hand or two to help complete: a natural habitat pond, garden beds, and orchard.

I had an amazing time at the home! Richard and Kerryn made me feel right at home! They are a super busy but an energetic and fun family!! Lyra and Kaylee are the sweetest and oh so talented. I had fun playing games with Kaylee and cooking with Lyra. The work was ok but they counted all my cooking so it was a lot of fun! And I can't forget about Charlie! The kitty cuddles, or should I say therapy, were so nice! Richard brought me to see kangaroos and they were happy to try to bring me into town when I wanted. All and all, it was a great experience:)

Our experience at the home is one we will never forget! Richard, Kerryn, Lyra and Kayley were all very welcoming and friendly. We were able to connect well through movie nights, dinners and game nights! The work can be physically taxing (we spent most of our time weeding) but rewarding. Both Richard and Kerryn laid out tasks clearly. The camper-van was cozy (even on the cold nights) and had everything we needed. We had our own private bathroom that was attached to the house. We will miss everyone tons but Charlie, Elvis and Bear especially! Thank you :)

I had really good time at the home. My work responsibilities were mostly gardening and small DIY projects. Whole family were very nice. I enjoyed having meals and playing board games together. Even though I was there only for two weeks I had chance to met some of their friends. I also enjoyed going with family for little trips to the beach. I slept in a camper trailer which was clean and modern. It was a bit cold at night though. I recommend staying in the home where atmosphere is nice and host family is friendly.

Kerryn & Richard are wonderful hosts, the girls Lyra & Kayley are lovely and such a credit to them too! I felt so welcomed and so comfortable throughout my stay. The work can be quite demanding and physical, but the down time with the family I really enjoyed. I feel like I got to see parts of Victoria I wouldn't have otherwise! I'll surely remember the experience, thank you all missing you already :(

My experience with Richard and his family was a remarkable experience. In the short time my wife and I were there we really connected with the family. Which made the time go by too fast. Richard had more than enough things to keep us busy, but was very flexible on the hours and the days off. Hopefully in the future we are able to stay with Richard and his family again.
