Possumbend is a lifestyle property just of state highway 2 within walking distance of morere hot springs reserve and about 20 minutes drive to the beaches of the mahia peninsula. The gisborne/wellington bus stops here twice daily.
After quite a few years being a wooffer/helper myself, I brought this property with the intention of growing my own fruit and vegetables, fishing and hunting. Its still a learning experience for me and there are a few things I can't grow but still enjoy (good coffee, wine etc).
I have a few rare breed sheep, a few ducks, an organic orchard, a green house and a creek with a swimming hole to cool of in on hot days. I also have a yoga studio/meditation room overlooking the river.
Helpers work about 4 hours a day.At the moment its mainly pick friut, gardening and some housework. Also, if you like cooking, i enjoy trying new recipes/meals etc. Summer is generally the best time to visit as the days are longer, the weather and sea are warmer and there is more to do. I prefer easy going people with a good sense of humour who are adventurous.
I do volunteer shift work with St Johns ambulance service so need people who don't mind working independently on ocassion. In my spare time i enjoy yoga,surfing, whitewater &still water kayaking, fishing, hunting, a good game of chess, photography and mountain biking. I am also currently training for the 2018 coast to coast, a multi sport event involving running, kayaking and biking.
If you are interested, email me and we can discuss things further.
