There is just too much for me to do at the moment and I need some help!

The weeds are winning!! so if you like to be outside and enjoy weeding please get in touch.

There are a few odd jobs here and there as we are developing a native walkway and landscaping other parts of our garden. Trying to get the veggies in for summer.

Not a priority but if you can use a chainsaw or are handy with tools we have some small building jobs that we need assistance with.

We like our helpers to be easy going and flexible. Some days you will be left to work independently other times you will work with us. Work is usually about 4 -5 hours a day depending on the job but if you are flexible there may be times you can do a full day then have a full day to go off and explore.

I love doing all sorts of crafts, mosaics, sewing, woodwork and wearable art to name a few! I try to make time to do something with helpers that show an interest.

There is no public transport near where we live but I am happy to pick you up from Waikari or nearby.

If you like watching tv or playing on a pc all day this place is not for you, we have limited internet access and NO cell phone coverage.

Accommodation is a self contained two bedroom cottage, separate from the main house, fully furnished with log burner and everything you need. There is sometimes a spare room in the house if you don't like being on your own.

There are a couple of bikes you can use.

We provide all meals except breakfast, but your welcome to use our free range eggs and prepare your own.

There is a pool and a river you can splash about in. If you find this a bit cold the Hot pools are about 50 mins away.

We are in the Pyramid Valley a very pretty farming countryside, 1 1/2 hrs north of Christchurch. 20 mins inland from Amberly and the Waipara vineyards and 50 mins from Hanmer hot pools, hunting fishing and Kaikoura, whale watching not too far away. Lots of nice walks.

We have 4 dogs who love walks and swims in the river, 2 cats, sheep, chickens and dairy goats.
We have a 15 yr old foster child who is on the autism spectrum he likes to ask lots of questions and will want to know everything about your homeland :) and will surprise you with what he knows.

So if your fit and have a good work ethic and can cope with all of this we would like you to get in touch with us.(email)
