We have a 3 acre property, planted as a private garden in 1905, then built on in 1950 to become a residence. Nicky is an arborist, so the many mature trees make for a great backyard training ground, but the many weeds make for a headache! We need help with tree felling and chipping, blackberry and ivy control, general weeding, mulching, firewood, dog-walking ... pretty much any skills that helpers bring would be utilised and appreciated. Accomodation is in our house, with meals provided. Meals are - in typical NZ fashion - cereal and toast for breakfast; sandwiches, fruit, and cake/cookies for lunch; and a larger cooked meal for dinner, generally with a dessert. Dinner is the only cooked meal of the day, and there are snacks available (muesli bars, cookies, crackers etc) any time. Three - four hours work per day, although this is flexible if time off is wanted for sightseeing. Non-smokers only, please.
Our town, Eltham, is a small rural town and there is not a lot to do locally, so... more inside

Hi everyone

We are working on our dairy farm and currently milking 220 cows.
We also got Two dogs Milo and Snoopy and a few chickens.


Now and then we are looking for help on the farm. Your jobs might include helping in the cow shed, jobs around the garden, spraying weeds or general housework.
We are calving at the moment so cows and calves are nr one priority. Current Projects: Planting trees, feeding calves, painting, cooking, baking, waterblasting.
No experience needed just a keen attitude. :)


In exchange we offer you food and accommodation and we'll try to show you as much as we can around taranaki :) You are more than welcome to take our car . You can go to the beach which is 5 minutes away, take our surfboard for a surf, go to the free museum down the road, play squash or tennis with us, go hiking on mount Egmont, play with the dogs, go for walks on the farm and around the area, go inline skating or just chill out and enjoy the sun,..

You will have your own... more inside

KIA ORA / GREETINGS .... I am currently able to host helpers.

If you are keen - Let me know your skills. The 'help' is varied and depends on what projects I am working on ...


I am always doing some gardening - weather dependent - and inside cleaning.
The garden beds always need a weeding and I often
mow the lawns.

A Helper/s with some I.T. experience / knowledge would be wonderful.

Helpers when visiting the mountain often write up their days visit and also we then post a few photos on the Taranaki vista web site.
So, check out my mountain live view web camera website.

I am also interested in creating & making short videos - only if you have good video skills.

I am also re building the property's gasometer .. a bit of cunning engineering is needed here.

AND if you like 'organizing' things then there certainly are a few tasks to do too if it rains and the work is inside.

I also expect helpers to do some voluntary work at the local community recycling... more inside

Hello!

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.

We will be in the Sustainable Backyard Tour this year, so are currently looking for helpers in September and October, to help tidy the gar... more inside
