Farm manager, Donald Wilson, says he currently employs four people, and a further 2-3 positions will be filled in the future. Working conditions at the farm take into account cultural and gender issues, and no one is asked to work too hard.

“We don’t ask a lot,” says Donald, “We ask that at least something gets done every day. We don’t ask anybody to work hard.”

Workers at the farm get paid 7.6 hours a day, working from 8:00am to 3:30pm with an hour for lunch and a 15-minute break through the day. On the job training is provided, and everyone has a chance to learn every job on the farm. That way when someone is away, the work can still get done.

Donald Wilson was on the dole for 12 months and his advice is simple: “Come and do some work.” You will feel much better for actually doing something.
