About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

I have a small property in Hazelgrove in NSW Central Tablelands close to Blue Mountains National Park, Bathurst, Mayfield Gardens, Jenolan Caves and Hill End.
Help is needed with my garden, general maintenance and housework. There are resident chickens and two pug dogs, Gloria and Eloise.

I am a very active and healthy 72 year old who has done many things and travelled a lot. I'm a widow with 2 sons, one living in Germany, the other sometimes travelling sometimes staying here. I have a grandson at University in holland.
Before being retired I ran a horse stud, bred and trained my horses, was also an EFA accredited riding teacher. I've run a farm accommodation property, and when I sold my farm went back to University and became a counsellor, practising for 7 years and then writing a book. I am still writing.
