We have 9 acres, mainly grazing, some trees & natives, a beautiful stream with ponds...
Ongoing tasks include: weeding gardens and paddocks, removing gorse/blackberry etc, building and repairing bridges, fences and sties, planting trees, general section & garden maintenance.
In the upcoming weeks we will be doing some earth building: an adobe pizza oven, a composting toilet... and there's always more ideas sprouting and brewing.
Helpers must be animal friendly. We have 3 dogs, 5 cats, 2 kunekune piglets, 3 chickens, a sheep and her lamb and 2 ducks, and the horses are coming soon.
Helpers have own separate wing of house with double bedroom and 2 single beds in living area, shared bathroom and kitchenette. We provide the food basics for you to cook. If you want anything special, you will have to provide it for yourselves. We cannot cater for special diets, but as you will be cooking, you may be able to arrange that!
Helpers must be self-motivated, reliable people.
We can take up to 4 people in house, and have plenty of space for tents and campervans. Couples welcome, children negotiable. No smoking inside! Minimum stay 5 days. We ask 4-5 hours work, with 2 days a week off.
Own transport is an advantage, but we can pick up and drop off in Tauranga on week days.
If you think this sounds like you, please send us a message! It would be great if we had about a weeks notice before you want to come, as we are coordinating lots of people! Thanks
