August 2017: We have loads for people to do at the moment - planting native trees, getting the veggie garden ready for spring, some building projects. Please contact us if you are available, especially couples or friends.
We are a family of four - Marcus from the UK (who also speaks French), Lisa from NZ, and two children (6 and 4 years old) - establishing our lifestyle block 16km outside Whakatane. We eat organic and home-grown produce as much as possible (not vegetarian) and generally try to live sustainably.
We moved to our home Easter 2013; we have off-grid solar power, spring and rainwater, a caravan, vege gardens and orchards. There is a large area of beautiful native bush on our property in which you can explore, soak up nature and chill out.
We are looking for visitors willing to help out with a wide range of jobs - planting natives, looking after the animals, a variety of building projects, weed control (mainly thistles and barberry), firewood cutting, tree planting, and of course child entertaining! Building or carpentry skills and experience using a chainsaw would be very helpful at the moment.
Helpers have the option of staying in the caravan or in a tent near the house.
Hours and meals are negotiable but our preference would be breakfast, lunch, and dinner supplied for a day's help (4-6 hrs depending on the work). We often eat vegetarian food but would rather not have strict vegetarians as we do cook with meat products a lot.
We are 15 minutes drive from Whakatane township, in Eastern Bay of Plenty.
