Samara Forest Garden is a 6 acre property in the Yarra Valley.. It is an organic permaculture urban mini-farm with an extensive ornamental garden. We have 7 goats (mainly miniatures), 7 chickens and a dog which will need to be fed daily. Also 4 sheep which need nothing doing while I am away. All the animals are very friendly and the goats love scratches and cuddles! The accommodation is a one-bedroom cottage at the front of the house completedly self-contained with it's own bathroom and kitchenette. There is reverse cycle airconditioning for heating and cooling and also a wood heater with ample supply of firewood. I am looking for a single person to house-sit for me, The sitter needs to feed the chickens and goats twice a day, morning and evening. Eggs can be collected and eaten . The dog needs feeding daily. I will be contactable by phone over the sitting period. I am looking for someone quiet, a non-smoker, who will keep the accommodation clean and tidy during their stay. The main thing is that the animals are well looked after. There's a couple of other little jobbies but not too much! Needing someone with farming or vet background who is comfortable with goats including one which may be kidding during the housesit period. .... .... As for myself, I have been living here for over eleven years and spend most of my time in my garden and with my animals. I also run sustainable living workshops mainly for fun and as I have a passion for the subject! You can google my name Doris Pozzi to get a feel for who I am. I also have been a HelpX host for many years and can provide many references to vouch for my character and integrity and ease to deal with. I look forward to meeting you and having you enjoy the experience of living at my property.
