Eco gran! I have a small 'urban farm' ... a productive backyard in the suburbs, 3.5 kms from city centre. Fruit trees, berries, herbs, veges, edible weeds, 6 hens (chooks), worms. Next project is to create a brick paved outdoor seating area - plus usual busy spring garden work. Sometimes like 1 (maximum 2) people who are genuinely interested to help with garden, seedlings, hens, seasonal bottling & preserving; help with small carpentry jobs and paving especially appreciated :-). I work full time, so garden in spare time. Small house so prefer shorter stays. Close to Fitzroy beach, river, coastal walkway.

I've travelled /lived in Sth & SE Asia; welcome travellers.

Can provide simple accommodation & food in return for 4 hours work a day. As house is small I prefer shorter stays.

You would stay in the visitors bedroom with a double bed - or you could have a tent on the lawn if you prefer (maybe that would be more suitable in summer!) The house is smoke and TV free; wireless available (though note NZ data caps!) Meals predominantly vegetable and salad based, mainly vegetarian, eggs; occasionally fish. Would expect guests to take their turn to help with meal preparation and do dishes.

One of my interests is raranga (flax weaving) & I am happy to share that knowledge. Looking to share house, garden, food, work and company with people who are cheerful, hard working, willing, have inquiring minds, enjoy some good conversation, some quiet times.
