Kia Ora,
This is a lifestyle block where we are working on regenerative agriculture and permaculture principles. Restoring a native wetland and growing nutrient dense food. We are a family with three children two of who are at school. Sam is a Chiropractor and is passionate about natural health practices. Jurjen is an electrical engineer and cabinet maker and is passionate about regenerative agriculture. Jurjen speaks Dutch and we are English speaking. Tasks vary from heavy scrub cutting, fencing and wetland planting, to renovating existing buildings, to light weeding and propagation work in the food garden and home chores such as tiding and cleaning. There are tasks for everyone.
We would love to welcome people who have an interest in eco practices, living in harmony with the environment and each other. We would ask that you have experience living away from home and are able to take care of yourselves. You will need to be fit and healthy as the majority of the work is on the land and is very physical. You will also need to be patient with children. We do not have a television and very poor phone reception, and internet is only available in the lounge of the family home.
We are driving distance to some beautiful areas but if you wish to explore these you will need your own vehicle.
We eat a nourishing whole foods diet that is gluten free. We do eat meat however vegans/vegetarians are welcome but will need to contribute more to their own food preparation. We prepare the dinner and generally eat dinner together but additional food will be supplied for lunch/breakfast for you to help yourselves to.
Our accommodation is very basic. We have a campervan in a meadow that is quaint and vintage but comfortable and separate from the house. It has solar power enough for two lights and enough to charge a phone but is otherwise very much like camping. The bathroom is shared with the family.
We look forward to hearing from you
Arohanui
Sam and Jurjen
