Our project focuses on raw Vegan, self-sufficiency, simple, natural life, off-grid life, deep ecology spirituality, etc.. We are looking for like-minded folks to join and help us with our project .

I thought it did but just saw it on domain.com the other day... Woo an official invite? Sounds pretty awesome :). It makes more sense to work together hey, I wasn't sure what the policy was on long term woofers with you and Bill, but I'd definitely love to spend more time up there. Just assessing my work situation at the moment... Me and Nico are keen to come up soon anyway, I'll msg u on fbk. :)

I heard it sold already ?????? You will work for fruit ..... great come on up ........ between this farm and Prems we should be able to feed and shelter you and maybe even arrange some extra ordinary survival funds .... Scommo needs a hand planting papaya soon etc you could spend a lifetime in the city saving for overpriced real estate or you could come hang out with friends and see what happens ..... I only spent 1 night in Cairns when I first arrived then straight to the country side ...... doors always opened for me partly from the good vibes I projected from the healthy food I was eating
