Nestled in sunny Diamond Harbour you 'll find the Gardeners Cottage. You are invited to assist with transforming this overgrown property into a semi rural haven with perma culture principles. Building with recycled materials, seeding, planting, weeding, pruning, firewood cutting and stacking, landscaping and painting, its all in a days work. It's quiet and peaceful here. You need to be self-sufficient as there is not much entertainment apart from walking, tramping, reading, cafes, library with internet, ferry ride to Lyttleton etc.

Food is mostly vegetarian and we welcome people who eat vegan and/or gluten free but all tastes are catered for. You will help with food preparation and do clean up as part of living together.

Work is 5 hours per day, can be flexible i.e. have a day off and work more another day.We usually start with 2-3 days and then may extend if everybody is happy.

Good conversational English is required.

Non Smokers only please. There is plenty of space for your tent if you are a camper.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Diamond Harbour is a village on Banks Peninsula just outside Christchurch. It takes just over an hour from Christchurch International Airport to Diamond Harbour by bus and ferry. By car it takes 40 minutes from Colombo Street.
