Nous sommes une famille de francais installe en Nouvelle Zelande depuis 12 ans maintenant, nos passions: l'art, le verre, la nature, le jardin (biologique!), les voyages et la rencontre des autres et differentes cultures. Nous avons 2 petites filles de 11 et 8 ans, c'est pourquoi nous preferons accueillir un couple ou une ou 2 jeunes filles qui voyagent ensemble pour nous aider dans nos projets autour de la maison.

I am originally from France. I have travelled the world following my passion for glass blowing and art in general and have settled in New Zealand 12 years ago, where I met my husband Jerome (French too!). We have two lovely girls called Anouk (10) and Janette (8). We have a passion for travelling in adventurous ways and meeting people from different cultures. We love good real food straight from the garden grown organically and passionate ly by us. Jerome loves Nature and work with the Department of Conservation to rehabilitate the kiwi population in our native forest which comes right to the edge of Owhango.
This is where we built our eco-house 3 years ago and have designed it to be unique, creative and welcoming. We have various projects on the go around the property and garden and wish to make good progress this coming spring/summer. Therefore we would love to have keen helpers with whom we can work together in good spirit and exchange our passion and knowledge. At the moment we are building earth walls (mix clay/sand/cement) around verandas outside with inserted cut bottles. We developed a technique that works well but it is time consuming! Other jobs are painting windows, weeding garden and help build outside roof/wall extensions. As we have two little girls we would prefer hosting couples or 1 or 2 girls travelling together.
We offer accommodation and meals in exchange of 4 hours work.
