We have an immediate opening for one or two helpers who are can help with building a small 'hobbit house' of earthbag and cob. And who also can lend a hand as needed with gardens, home, horses. Our 10 acre lifestyle property features vegetable garden, herb garden, small fruit orchard, haflinger and haflinger-cross ponies, dog, cat and chooks.

Janice is author of 6 books (mostly herbal), She and Barry advocate for humane treatment of all animals, and alternatives to aerial 1080 poison being used by NZ government; Tech savvy helpers are always appreciated.

Please email rather than send voice messages.

Your accommodation is a private bedroom above the workshop (toilet and shower in the main house). At times the private cottage (with facilities) is available. Work averages 4 hours daily plus help with meals; food and lodging are provided.

Off-time fun includes hiking and mountain biking. You can bask in the outdoor tub and infrared sauna. In summer you can swim in the river or pool. We are 45 minute drive from Abel Tasman Park and close to Kahurangi National Park.

We practice natural horsemanship (Parelli, Caroline Resnick, Mark Rashid, Imagine-a-horse & others) and always appreciate sharing equine philosophy and skills. Riding may be available to qualified persons.

Barry is an aviation enthusiast and has built an amphibian microlight.
