The Experience

We have a mixed permaculture farm producing vegetables, fruit and livestock, nestled in secluded hills of rural South East Qld. With a background in education, we like to share our experience and help you learn about permaculture, particularly as it applies to our climate. In addition to daily care of livestock and vegetable market garden, we may have projects in construction, revegetation and landscaping, utilising skills you bring if possible.

Wonderful experience with Megan and Wil, my 2 weeks here absolutely flew by! They did a great job of making me feel welcome in their home and within their family. Jobs were usually around 4 hours a day in the morning or afternoon so plenty of time to relax and explore the land which was beautiful! Got involved in a range of jobs including gardening and building a composting toilet. Learned lots about sustainable living and permaculture projects which I will take with me and try to apply to my life. I really recommend this experience for anyone looking to learn about farm living :)

Incredible experience, totally recommend to others that want to experience the pure Australian countryside. Full of activities but very relaxed schedules. All family takes you as one more member! It's a beautiful and quiet place to enjoy the moment, they really focus on teaching you permaculture. Personally I have so much to thanks because of all the help I received as someone that just arrives in a new country. For people that want to be part of a community and learn how to help the world, with ecology and farm knowledge, this is the place for you.

I had a great experience. Since I arrived Megan and Will made me feel welcome and at home. It was the first time I was a volunteer and here in Australia and I couldn't be more grateful that it happened here in the project. Three weeks here with the hosts and their family went by in a flash. Work was flexible, I mainly helped in the market garden and I had plenty of free time I spent with them or by myself. They're wonderful hosts and it was a pleasure to stay here, it was an experience I won't forget and I would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you Megan and Will, I will miss you guys.
