About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We live in the wild - 600 acres of Australian bush, surrounded by forest, along the Tambo River, with expansive views up and down the Tambo Valley. Our place is completely off grid, using solar power and rainwater. We need help with building projects and establishing a vegie garden, and occasional assistance with art projects.

Please contact us only if you are already in Australia or have a confirmed arrival date, thanks.

Tracey is an artist working mostly with community projects and public art, with some studio-based practice as well.

Jamie works from home in the IT industry, and in his spare time works on our building projects, and reads voraciously - he loves discussing politics, economics and books.

We have lived in many places around Australia, and have now put our roots down in this beautiful valley. Dozens of volunteers from all over the world have stayed with us over the years, and we have enjoyed sharing our life in the wild with them.
