In many areas, it’s almost impossible to find people with trades that will drive the distances to do work. On the other hand there are tens of thousands of grey nomads, holiday makers, tradies on holiday, even backpackers who have skills that are willing to help but just don’t know where their help could be best put to use.
So Buy a Bale is building a volunteer army of people keen to help the bush and calling it The Farm Army.
The Farm Army has developed a site to provide farmers and helpers with a single place to come together to help each other. Some jobs will be full time, some jobs will be one off’s, some jobs require a special skill set, other jobs just need a pair of hands and a willingness to help, some jobs come with accommodation offers, whilst others will require you to find your own place to lay your head. All jobs will come with a friendly smile, a chance to make new friends and a large sense of gratitude for a job well done and knowing that you have helped someone in need.
