The nearest shops are in a small town called Oxford 10 kms with the nearest Mall being in Christchurch a 35 minutes drive.
We have multiple projects around the property as well as everyday tasks around the home and would love some assistance. We're continually expanding our veggie gardens and developing a fruit orchard area. If you could help us with permaculture that would be great! Our animals are pets and we do not eat meat.
