About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

My partner and I are proud owners of a beautiful 5 acres near the Great Barrier Reef, Port Douglas and the Barron Falls. We are house/garden proud. We have recently acquired a rooster and hens and have two much loved house pets. Looking for a single person or couple prepared to care for the property and the animals, to be proud of the glorious surroundings we live in and to share it for a while.

We are a couple who live a modest and quiet life. We love our animals, work as a teacher and bookkeeper. We love meeting new people, helping others and sharing our lives with the people we love. Our house is very special to us. Our animals are its heartbeat. We have just recently moved to this property and want to keep it beautiful and develop its rainforest and beauty by planting, weeding and doing jobs inside and out to keep it special.
I am a fluent Italian speaker and Ernie is from Dutch heritage. We have a large community of friends and family who live nearby. Life for us is great and very blessed.
