Kia Ora. We are a family of 2 - myself and my son Emanuel (6 years old). For the past 7 years I have been creating my "place" on a high hill overlooking Tasman Bay, minutes from Nelson. A scrubby slope is being transformed into paths and terraces, organic veggie gardens and fruit trees, and regenerating bush. Our new house offers upscale tourist accommodation. New creation is constantly taking place and care of the existing, all grateful for your help.
Ongoing is garden and land development chores and housekeeping. Keen on building, joinery, and web design professionals as these are now at the top of the to-do list.
***** On the practical side for short term helpXing - We find that 4-5 days is about right (would welcome long term if there's chemistry). Maturity, initiative, and can-do attitude, follow-through and attention are appreciated. You must be comfortable being with kids, no smoking, drugs or alcohol please. You will be our guest and part of our family but we will not clean up after you (you do this on your "own" time). Around 4-5 hours expected for each night stay. We are on rainwater, solar hot water and a septic system so all need to be treated with respect.... nice short showers and nothing extra down the drain. Big Sky is not a farm but a small-holding "lifestyle block" - meaning loads of work and no income :-).
