I am a retired medical herbalist growing plants for medicine, 3 km north of Coromandel town, near Driving Creek Cafe; we have medicinal herbs growing all around the farm after years of finding the best spots for each herb to flourish . The work is sometimes farm work fixing fences and tidying up branches, we also collect chicken poo for the garden, prepare garden beds for herbs, plant garlic, dig out wild cherry trees and privet along the Whangarahi River,and mulch fruit and nut trees. On rainy days we clean the house, or strain out herbal tinctures. Minimum stay 2 weeks.

We work 2 hours a day with 1 day a week off. This is work in return for accomodation, you provide your own food, (there is a communal kitchen/caravan for cooking) but you will be scheduled to work for neighbouring hosts for one meal each day, eg. 2 hours work for Alison in return for dinner; we sometimes have shared dinners together at home. Showers and laundry at Naomi's, WiFi at Driving Creek Cafe (5 mins walk). there is a bicycle available to get to town, 3km.

Please email and let me know when you're available, age & nationality, and what your skills are.

If arriving from Auckland you might wish to catch the Auckland-Coromandel ferry, ph 0800 360 3472, or take a bus .
