YOUR STAY INCLUDES:
ALL MEALS, fruit & snacks, are provided by us, having asked you if there is anything you are allergic to or simply cannot eat.
We use in season fruit and veggies, whole grains where possible. WE CANNOT, purchase your favourite food, We cannot guarantee everything is organic. It is VERY expensive and we are the sole managers of our food budget.
You CANNOT cook your own meals – we cannot afford to pay gas, electricity, etc., allowing each helper to cook for themselves. It is exponentially more expensive to allow each person/couple to cook their own food, we simply cannot afford this.
This does NOT mean you cannot ever cook, we OFTEN invite our guests to cook their own ethnic/favourite cuisine
Everyone is expected to help where possible, chopping, peeling + “other” food preparation. Stack dishwasher, empty & put away from dishwasher, general clean-up.
Coffee, tea and many other beverages included. Excluding Alcohol.
Electricity, gas and water, included (We ask for NO utilities)
NBN (National Broadband Network) unlimited 24/7 internet, (Advertised speed 100mb DOWN 40mb UP) - Like every “telco” in OZ, they are invertebrate Liars!!!.
Limited Printing, Free, over 10 pages – cost recovery only. Scanning facilities free.
You can join us on all trips out, shopping, sightseeing, etcetera. Admission prices are NOT included.
Trips you want to do and places you want to see – NON PROFIT: cost of Petrol, parking, etc.. ONLY.
YOUR WORK HOURS (TEMPLE – 5 hour day)
Your day will begin around 7am when you get out of bed. We set out the table with what’s available. YOU prepare your Breakfast, (Cereal, Toast, coffee, tea, fruit, etc.. etc.. – please choose from what’s on the table only). Please be ready to leave NO later than 0800. PLEASE be on time. The 5 hour commitment needs some explanation. It means you will be required to be AVAILABLE for five hours, PER DAY for FIVE days per week. You will NOT work five hours, in fact it will be LESS than four hours, for most people.
IT GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS:-
Your “WORKING” day starts when we leave for the Temple at 8am. We will be at the temple around 8:15am, where we ask for you to assist until 12:45pm. During these 4.5 hrs, you will be given lunch at the temple. We will pick you up each day at 12:45pm and bring you back to our home around 1PM.
NOTE: If you have your own vehicle, we expect you to drive there yourself. PLEASE indicate your willingness to do so. A full weeks driving, there AND back is about 70 kilometres. $10.00 PER WEEK will be offered to offset your fuel cost (ROUGHLY 10 L per 100km) Hence 7 litres of fuel @1.3 per litre is $9.10) Mondays is currently
Perth’s cheapest fuel day www.fuelwatch.wa.gov.au We averaged less than $1.25 per litre all of last year.
So we are asking for 5 hours “of your time” per day, 5 days per week (NOT all work)
• 30 minutes of those 5 hours will be spent travelling to and from the Temple.
• During the 4.5 hours working at the Temple, you will be invited to join the Monks and “helpers” in a FULL Buffet Lunch.
• Generally there is a good variety of Vegan food – we eat there often, some days we bring vegan food to the Temple.
We are a “homestay” and expect you will help around the house – Just normal household chores pretty much like you would do at home, wash dishes sweep floors, tidy up – this is seven days a week – THIS IS in our profile!!!
