No help required at this time thanks.

We (Suzanne and David) are a couple in our late 40s with 2 kids who are away at university. We have a 1/3 acre property in a residential area of New Plymouth, just 2 kilometres from the centre of town and within walking distance of a safe swimming beach and the coastal walkway.

We have recently completed studies in Organic Horticulture so are developing a permaculture garden. So far we have planted an orchard and made and planted raised garden beds. We have a couple of chickens, but no other pets or livestock.

Future projects include installing a rainwater collection tank, building a permanent chicken coop and maintaining the existing gardens.

I work Monday to Friday and my interests are reading and cooking. David is at home and is into hunting, fishing and cooking. We try to eat seasonally, from our garden where possible. David also brews beer and makes wine. I make Kombucha.

Accommodation is in our home. We can host a couple, or two single people. Our understanding of HelpX is 4 hours work per person per day, in exchange for three meals and accommodation. We understand there are other arrangements, but we would be happy with the above, or a variation of it.
