We are located in Golden Bay on a large piece of organically farmed land in Takaka town ship. People have their private allotments here and the Community Organic Gardens also grow on their own plots to provide food for the vege/fruit stall at the gardens and to feed the wwoofers/helpers and the food bank at the community workers. The buildings on site are rented out to community groups for meetings/workshops/classes. Events are run here as well. In summer there is a cafe on site. Takaka is a colourful small town in beautiful Golden Bay with a diverse community and there is a lot happening (mostly in summer).

We are looking for helpers (minimum 1 week) but also looking for long term helper(s) who are keen to manage the other helpers.

Work includes: organic gardening, property maintenance (pruning, mowing, weeding, building, painting, cleaning) help running stall. The work can be physically demanding.

We ask for 4 hours of work in exchange of accommodation and basic food ingredients. As the coordinator doesn't live on site, you will have to take care of your own food preparation. Sleeping facilities are in the earth building or camping (depending on time of the year) There are basic shower/toilet facilities on site. You need to be able to work independently at times.

We have our annual fundraiser event (Harvest Festival) coming up and we love your help with that! It's a great festival with local live music and fresh yummy organic food :-)
