Bamboo Helpers

Welcome to our Helper/Work Exchange access point to involvement in sharing sustainability and natural building skills. Helping at Bamboo Creative enables you to join our natural building activities and workshops at a subsidized rate in exchange for help in the running and maintenance of daily life at our Bamboo Sky-Kubu(Shack). We provide accommodation, breakfast and lunch in exchange for your labour contribution. Helpers agree to do their share of household tasks and can participate in our bamboo and natural building program (Monday to Friday) and Craft Workshops (morning/afternoon workshop on Saturdays). Sundays are free days and you can join our Ecobrick Pizza Party Afternoons.

Helpers help by:
– Emptying compost bin/s and maintaining compost
– Sorting plastic trash, washing and compacting into ecobricks
– Wiping down tables and benches after meals and helping with meal prep
– Bringing plates and cutlery to dining area after they are washed
– Sweeping the dorm each morning
– Helping tidy and put away and sharpen tools at the end of each session

We love to have Helpers join our family and we welcome you to share skills you have learned elsewhere (and are proficient in), talents you are working on in arts/music/song/dance and your time and energy to share with our local community. We can support 1-2 helpers at any one time and request a minimum 1 week to 10 day commitment. If you are looking at an extended stay, please enquire through our Internships Program.

If you’d like to join our Helper Program, please send your application here outlining your experience, what area you are most interested in learning about, your planned dates for staying with us.


Thanks awesome people!
