Farm Help/gardening

Melaluca Plantation Byron Bay NSW

Hi guys!

I’m young bloke 25 y.o and have done a fair bit of traveling and backpacking myself.

Really I would just like to host some young and easy going backpackers who are keen to give me a hand with odd jobs on the farm. In exchange for a few hours work a day I will give you a great place to stay and a great experience exploring the area! I can show you the best places in the area as well as really nice places to visit which not many backpackers would otherwise get the chance to see!

We can share some beers over a fire after a days working and exploring the area.. I know some great spots for hiking, secret waterfalls, swimming spots, surfing.

We also have a tennis court on the farm so you would be welcome to play as much as you like!

I am really easy going and flexible with how many days you would like to help out. But it would be great to have you on the farm for at least 1-2 weeks and then if you would like to extend then we can discuss.

Typical work will involve a few hours of cleaning up the farm (fencing, clearing fallen down trees, gardening, lawn mowing, slashing on the tractor and helping me do odd jobs around the place).

It would be really nice to host a couple of a pair of mates who are travelling together and want to experience a great stay on a farm.

I can provide you with your own separate cottage (with two bedrooms) bathroom and then we can share the kitchen and cooking together!

I am also keen to do some more surfing in the afternoons! The beach is only 20mins away so if you are a keen surfer or would like to learn that would be great also!

But please note this is not a paid work position. Just a chance to offer a place to stay and share some great experiences on the farm and in the amazing northern rivers region!

Coffee Club! 4th June

It was a chilly Tuesday afternoon for Coffee Club yesterday, but lucky for us, we were  still able to sit in the student garden and make the most of the sunshine!

However, we did have to move our mat a couple of times as the sun disappeared behind the trees, but it was good to get up and stretch our legs after each incredibly long game of uno 🙂

We played around 4 games in total, each one finishing in a battle to the end. It was hilarious to watch play out. At the end of each game Luc had a new suggestion for a rule that kept the games very interesting. Thanks Luc 🙂

See you all again next Tuesday for more fun and of course tim-tams!

Class trip to the Movies

On Wednesday our Intermediate and FCE class went to Palace Cinema to watch the movie 2040.

cinema

It was about a journey to explore what the planet would look like by the year 2040 while focusing on what is happening now. From the movie we found that there are lots of solutions such as marine permaculture, shared energy, renewable energy, balanced agriculture and female empowerment and education.

We strongly recommend everyone to watch 2040 because it is such a good movie to learn about how we can contribute to a bright future.
