    Would you like to live in a permaculture sanctuary?

    In exchange for a large, beautiful and private room, with ensuite bathroom and small kitchenette in a big house right on the beach at Bungan (between Newport and Mona Vale), you would help out in the garden for a few hours each day.

    We have big permaculture gardens set over 4 blocks, a seed raising greenhouse, chooks, an extensive aquaponics set up (in a converted swimming pool), 2 native bee hives, 2 European bee hives, worm farms, maggot breeders and heaps of other fun stuff.

    The ideal person would be mature, a keen learner, with some permaculture or gardening training or experience (or super willing to read/study and learn), very reliable (you would be relied on to feed fish, take care of chooks etc), easy to get along with and take directions well. You would need to be willing to supervise wwoofers some of the time too (once you had learnt the ropes)!

    You would be sharing the house with myself and my partner, and 2 or 3 wwoofers! We have a friendly and dynamic house, which is well set up so you can enjoy company when you want it or your own space. We generally share the cooking and meals/food can be included in your stay if you are willing to share in the food preparation tasks (this are pretty broad as we make our own jun, kefir, bone broth, preserves, ferments, nut butters etc) or you can choose to do your own cooking as the room you would live in has a small kitchenette space.

    We call our project Bungan Edible Sanctuary and you can find out more about it here:
