About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Our beautiful 57 acre farm is situated just outside Coffs Harbour, 10 minutes drive from Sawtell beach. We have 1000 fruit trees and need help picking and maintaining them.
Accommodation is a purpose built annexe, separate from the main house, with its own bathroom, tv, kettle, toaster etc., and has a lovely aspect overlooking the farm. Main meals are taken in the house with us.

We are originally from UK and have lived in many different countries. We came to Australia 16 years ago, we liked it so much we decided to stay and bought this property in Bonville. Coffs Harbour has a subtropical climate and, at present, in Winter, the temperature is 20 degrees during the day! In Summer, it is approximately 28 degrees most days. My wife was a teacher, but now loves working outside on the farm, so do I!
