“Helping in Murrnong is living in Murrnong. David and Cecilia’s demeanour consist in giving you the possibility to take initiatives and contribute to the farm. It’s an outdoor university and a perfect getaway from our consumer society.” Gabriel Lellouche, 2017, Systems Engineer
“It has been such a pleasure! Thank you so much for all that we have been sharing these last 3 weeks. Your way of living is so
inspiring, I’m looking forward to find a land in south of France and start doing it!
By the way, Grace, once I will have a land, you can be sure that there will be a shovel waiting for you!” Florent Marrot, 2017, Landscape Architect
“I planned to stay 2.5 weeks, and ended up staying 4 weeks at Davids beautiful permaculture farm! I really enjoyed this, one of my best times in Australia. At his farm you can learn and experience so many different things, David knows a lot about sustainable living, permaculture, natural building etc. For me, working there never really felt like work, it was more a fun- learning experience, like milking the goats, picking olives or nuts, cooking and trying out new things (with the help of a local chef staying there at the moment). Also, I was really lucky to be there during a natural building workshop, where I got the opportunity to be part of the build of a beautiful small cob house.”

I have just spent three weeks at Murrnong and enjoyed a truly rewarding experience. David is a natural teacher, always patient and generous with his knowledge, and his very well established permaculture farm offers a wide range of activities and learning opportunities.
