HI there
we live by the beautiful surf breaks of Whale and Manu Bay, 5 mins walk to the surf. Our property backs onto the bush reserve of Karioi Mountain, from our backdoor you can access bush tracks that will take you to the top of Raglans extinct volcano, and offer a view up the North Island coastline.

Our property is a backyard sustainable oasis based on permaculture principles. We have gardens, fruit trees, chickens and ducks. We raise seedlings, make compost, plant gardens, dry herbs, preserve food, care for our animals and enjoy nature at our backdoor. We are vegetarian and eat whole unprocessed food.
Our three children are home schooled and enjoy surfing, skating, horse riding, mountain biking and snow boarding (lucky them eh!)

Tasks at this time are based on the garden and helping around the home. It's time for spring planting, mulching and weeding. Also in the house some spring cleaning. Please don't contact unless you are physically capable of doing garden work, and have suitable outdoor clothing and shoes. City gear doesn't do it around here in the bush!!! Garden tasks could include weeding, mulching, digging and using a wheelbarrow.

A suitable helper would have an interest in gardening and permaculture and a desire to learn to live in harmony with our natural world.

Accomodation is a bedroom downstairs from the main house.

Look forward to hearing from you please outline your length of stay desired, age, country of origin and interest.
Warm wishes
Jaynie Keir
