Animal and Garden Gurus
57, art therapist
58, PhD candidate
Keen organic gardener and animal lovers available to care for your fur babies, house and gardens. We both work/study part-time from home (online) so can live anywhere and decided house sitting was a great way to see the country and decide where we want to 'retire' to and build our dream off-grid eco house.
We both have current Police, working with children, older people and vulnerable person's clearances and are both non-smokers. References available.
I studied ecology/animal behaviour many moons ago and supported my parents on their small farm (organic veg, eggs and animals) when I was younger. I have been part of community gardens, permaculture, food co-ops and established and planted my own native garden and organic vegie patch. Greg is passionate about animals and worked in an animal shelter in Victoria before moving to SA.
We've cared for/owned dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, quails, rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, sheep, pigs and cows and haven't met too many animals we don't like to hang out with (except snakes).
We're mature, clean, tidy, responsible and will leave your place as we found it. Your animals and gardens will be lovingly looked after, fed, watered and talked to. Depending on my partner's research commitments, there may be one of us or two but we will keep you informed.
We both love bushwalking, travel, art, music, trains and cycling.
