We are looking for self-contained accommodation, or a large room in a share house with our own bathroom so we can maintain some separation. As much as we would love to be a part of a household we are spending a lot of time with elderly relatives and friends while we are in Melbourne so need a situation where we can maintain social distance. We aren't sure of our exact dates at this point - like a lot of folks right now its kind of hard to plan, but it looks like early September for at least 6 months, possibly longer (Jan is in Melbourne and Jeff is currently in the US trying to get here!). We are happy to trade gardening or other skills for some of the rent in the right situation and are experienced gardeners and house/pet sitters with a background in organic farming. While we often have access to a vehicle, we don't have our own car, so looking for places close to Eastern Fwy or Bushy Creek bike paths or somewhere close to the Box Hill train line. Our ideal location is somewhere near Belmore Rd between Union Rd and Elgar Rd. We are in our late 50s. Jeff is an amateur photographer and musician (acoustic guitar, mainly folk and alt country covers along with a few originals), recently retired from a career in land preservation. Jan is a jill of all trades with a particular focus on organic farming and gardening and cooking. We are both into bushwalking and other outdoor activities and when we are in Melbourne we volunteer at an indigenous plant nursery and for Gardens for Wildlife. Jan is about to start a Permaculture Design Certificate course. Jeff practices guitar most days and sometimes plays online concerts so looking for somewhere quiet where that won't bother anyone.
