We are a family of 5 with 3 young children and we live in rural Bay of Islands on 12 acres of land. Half is native bush and kiwis abound! We have established vege gardens and an orchard and our major current project is the building of a poured earth family home on the land and live as sustainably as possible. Our interests include healthy living, alternative therapies and vipassana meditation. We are originally from the UK, so English is our first language, but Kat also speaks Italian, German and French.
We live about 20 minutes from the coast and enjoy sailing, surfing and camping locally when we can. It would be useful if you had your own transport to make the most of the beautiful area that we live in.
We welcome mature WOOFers to come and help with our projects and work normally involves helping with our vege gardens, building and restoration work.

We ask for the recommended 4-5 hours per day in exchange for accommodation and plenty of healthy food. We have a newly built tree house for you to stay in which overlooks the bush (see photos). We're flexible as to how long you stay,though we prefer stays of at least one week or more. Our place suits independent travellers who are happy to have their own space and cooking facilities in the newly built workshop/barn.
