NSW, COLEAMBALLY - Can you help Dianne and Larry complete some tree planting?,
Activities: Dianne has reached out to you for some valuable lending hands planting native trees and saltbush around the Riverina area now that some rains have come.
They have had the business for 17 years however unfortunately her husband, Larry, is now bed ridden with cancer and he is not able to assist. They have 3 young kids and Dianne is in desperate need of your help.
She is looking for a 2 people ideally - a couple would be great - one person to go out to the paddocks, drive the truck and help her do the planting and one person to stay at their place in town and help with Larry and the kids. This could include spending a couple of nights at pub accomodation depending on how far the planting location is.
Firstly, she needs someone with a HR truck licence and some mechanical know how as the rotary hoe is operated from the front of the Fendt tractor (100 horsepower).
You need to be able to drive the machinery onto the back of a 5 tonne truck, drive that truck with Dianne to various locations within a couple of hours radius. Your main role will be driving, loading and unloading. Dianne will be on the tractor planting the trees. You could be planting up to 2000 trees a day over several properties.
The other part of the support Dianne is looking for, is around a carer for her husband and children while she is away. This will provide incredible emotional support for her so she can keep the business running.
Duration: Up to 4 weeks
Accomodation: Provided or BYO
