I live on a 3/4 acre property about 20 minutes drive from Tauranga in a rural area with 10 year old twin boys Daniel and Michael. I am about 5 km from SH 2 and can pick people up from there if you do not have your own transport. I have a tenant on the property that lives in a little cottage with 2 girls one older and one younger than my boys. We have a little community! We eat mostly out of our own garden or on local produce from our neighbourhood.

We have a young lush food forest with fruit trees and medicinal herbs, vegetable gardens, chickens, and two cats. My tenant has chickens, quail a cat and 2 dogs! I am gradually putting the principles of Permaculture into practice to live more sustainably. There are quite a few like minded people in the area and our small community hall is often buzzing with events such as Harvest Festival.

I have a guest room with a double bed and shared bathroom. There is also internet access for basic internet use.

What I mostly need help with currently is painting my house, inside and out.

If we are not painting, there is also lots of gardening to be done (weeding, planting). Garden art to be made (signs etc). Harvesting and preserving food. Also cooking and baking since I get sick of my own cooking! Mowing lawns and house cleaning.

I am flexible with when you can work, generally mornings work best if we are doing activities together. I require 4 hours work per night you stay in return for food, accommodation and basic internet use. I can accommodate vegetarian, vegan or raw food diets as well as meat eaters (especially if you prepare the food!). Non-smokers only please.

Ideally you are outgoing and enjoy interacting with children as my kids enjoy talking with adults. You should be willing to do indoor or outdoor work, be mature and stay about a week.
