Are there garden lovers out there? I live on a rural property twenty minutes south of Pukekohe. I have 2 adult children, one living with me and the other who visits regularly. My house is a renovated farm house with a large garden. I have a productive vegetable garden, chickens, ducks and usually farm raised meat. I have a cat and a dog.
You will live in the house and have access to a pool and an extensive area of native bush for walking/running.
The help I am looking for at present is with wintering down my garden: weeding, spreading mulch onto the garden and clearing an area of privet (a local weed) ready for planting. These are very physical jobs. My daughter Emma, is building a cob cabin and helpers may be involved with this project. As well as this, there are general chores around the home, fire wood gathering and animal care. I work at the local school and so appreciate independent helpers. It is 40 minutes to Auckland airport and so this is a convenient stop on your way out of NZ. I can usually take you to the airport.

There is plenty to do in the area, with local bush walks, Port Waikato beach a short drive away and a friendly community. There are limestone caves (45 mins away).
Enthusiastic and willing helpers are very welcome to spend some time in this lovely place. Length of stay is negotiable.
