Thanks for looking at our profile :) My name is Sharon, Im a young at heart active Grandmother raising a Grandson. I run a couple of charity fund raisers for a couple of things Im passionate about.

Currently my Mother could use a helper to feed two cows, a pig some chickens and goats where she is staying in Marton township so you could stay there half the week and give her a hand :) and have access to town life on the weekends. This would be a little introduction to what its like to help out with animals to see if you like doing that if you haven't done any animal work before. Very light work just a bit much for Mum at her age.

I like helpers to stay a minimum of 3 nights and you can stay a couple of months if you want to.

We are able to host one keen and capable female school or kindergarten Teacher if possible as I have an 8 yr old Grand son named Hunter whom I home school under Te Kura/The Correspondence school so they send the work books and activity ideas and he just requires supervision and assistance to complete them.

Im happy to host younger girls so long as you are keen to be of help either inside with Hunters school work or in the jungle that is my garden :) Sometimes I host 2 at a time if helper one is keen to have company, but I prefer helpers who travel alone as you tend to have a great attitude to life.

If you are 2 female friends who have different interests, For example, one is good with children and the other likes to garden please contact me anyway and tell me your story :)

I have accom in the house or a campervan that has which has a hot plate and jug and toaster and two single bed spaces so you can be semi self contained as well as sharing life and meals with us inside the house.

I have chickens a couple of geese and spare gumboots :)

I share care friday through Monday of 2 other Grandsons 5 and 2 yr old and they are gorgeous little boys and lots of fun and I either bring them home or stay in town with them which is when you could stay with my Mother if you liked to, who is an active hilarious older lady (72) and great fun to be around.

We live on State Highway 1 between Hunterville and Ohingaiti in the North Island, Rangitikei District, near the Rangatira Golf Course and close to the river.

I do need a hand to put chicken netting over a framed area for a garden that we have already built so that the chickens wont be able to get into the veges. Its not a job I can easily do myself.

Im pretty cruisy and like people who are also good to get along with and more on the quiet side and who like a quiet relaxed life rather than raging party types.

If we are compatible you can stay for a couple of months if you want to and use the place as a base to travel from.

We get around the country a fair bit so road trips are always on the agenda. Hot/cold swims and holidays :) We love taking regular road trips that keep our lives interesting.
