Adventure, Kiwi-style!

We are 3 women, 3 dogs, a cat and a beehive, in rural Waihi. We are at the very beginning of our project - building a lifestyle/farm which is as natural and self-sufficient as possible. We are off-grid, with some solar power. We have composting toilets. This is an opportunity to experience true kiwi Glamping!

We are:
-building and renovating 'tiny house' cabins
-building animal shelters
-creating and building gardens.

Helpers must be honest, trustworthy, clean, reliable and willing. Must definitely be kind, friendly, tolerant, nice people, and be very sensible around animals, especially dogs. No party-people thanks.

We are looking for the Dream Team helpers! We are able to host from 31st October onwards. We are looking for a group of 2-4 people travelling together. We can accommodate you for 1 week. We are looking for people with skills and experience in building and renovating. We will be building chicken houses, and a bathroom. We will also be mowing for hay in mid-December.

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently building our cabins. Until they are ready, we can only accept helpers with your own campervan or similar accommodation. We can provide tents if required. We accept helpers for 1 week at a time.

PLEASE NOTE: we only accept helpers who have a photograph on their profile. If you do not have a photograph, please do not apply.

We are about 6km from Waihi township so your own transport would be useful. However we do have bicycles for helpers to borrow, and we can take helpers into town when we go on errands.

Some NZ sign language spoken, Vegetarians can be catered for. We offer a healthy, fun and friendly experience, 3 yummy meals a day plus home-baking, beautiful surroundings, and opportunities to meet people and join in with community activities

This is a bit of a challenge and not for everyone, but if you like this kind of environment, you will havd lots of fun. Please be very sure that you want to come here!
