The Permaculture Research Institute of Australia, directed by world renowned Geoff and Nadia Lawton, are now WWOOF hosts!

In your work as a WWOOFER you will have the unique experience of being able to observe and be involved in the practical development of Zaytuna Farm (a 65 acre property bordering the village of The Channon, near Lismore in northern NSW), which is under the guidance of one of the world’s leading permaculture experts.

The property’s various earthworks, its diversity of plant species, its mix of domestic livestock and native wild animals, all make for a stimulating and enjoyable experience for those who relish life in beautiful and interesting surrounds.
