Volunteering and Internships!

We have vacancies for our Internship programme:
September to Dec 2017; Dec 2017 to Feb 2018. Our internships are designed for people wanting to learn about organic fruit and vegetable production. Interns take responsibility for up to 6 crops (under our guidance) and we offer workshops as time allows on topics of interest.

We run a small scale intensive market garden, nursery and orchard on Great Barrier Island, operating according to organic/biological principles.

We grow a very wide range of high quality produce including fruit, vegetables and herbs. 95% of our produce stays here. Truly local food. Our small but busy nursery grows a wide range of seedlings for local gardeners.

Our produce is available at a weekly Saturday market at Stonewall Village in Tryphena, and via a fruit/vege box service for locals and visitors almost year round. We also supply local cafes and restaurants.

We do have availability early October otherwise we are booked out till February 2018

Great Barrier Island is a remote, stunningly beautiful Island about 100 km's East of Auckland. Excellent tramping, beaches, surfing, fishing and kayaking

We (husband and wife) live in a large architecturally designed house on 4 hectares of land overlooking Tryphena Harbour
We have a large garden - both ornamental and vegetables from which we eat. While not totally organic we try to use organic techniques to grow our food
We have a small boat and always need encouragement to take time off and go fishing.
We always have masses of projects going on, as we attempt to be as self sufficient as possible - without losing out on the luxuries of life. Our projects projects include gardening, building, websites and making papercrete building blocks etc etc
Great Barrier Island has no reticulated power or water. So we have 8 solar panels, which provide most of our power. Our water is from a spring (... more inside

We have availability from late October / early November and looking for a helper to help us for two weeks or more. In between doing beautiful hikes, surfing our uncrowded waves or wandering along empty beaches, we would love your help with childcare, helping out around the house, gardening and possibly cutting paths in the bush at our new house.

We are a family who love the outdoors and our alternative lifestyle here on Great Barrier Island. We live in a house that is completely off the grid and runs on solar power. Our water comes directly from the sky or from the stream and we have a big vege patch. In our spare time we fish, dive, surf, hike or just enjoy wandering along the beach with our 2 year old son.

We've recently moved into this property and while we have been renovating for the last year (thanks to all the help from wonderful helpXers) there's still lots to be done. We would love your help, so get in touch!

In exchange for 4 hours work a day, plus a bit of ge... more inside

Great Barrier Island is a 30 min flight or 5 hour barge from Auckland. It's a very special place, if you want to see NZ it's a must! I am looking for a person to look after my two gorgeous (most of the time) children at times during the day and evening when I am working from home. They are 8and 4. We live on a large lifestyle block with lots of daily chores, collecting firewood, gardening and general cleaning. We are pretty remote with no shops nearby (nearest is 30 mins by car) but there is an awesome, friendly, community and the views are spectacular! Being able to drive and being comfortable in nature is essential. If you are happy to be involved with pest control I'd be stoked!!

You have a room in the house with double bed, but there are many spots on the property for quiet contemplation. We have free unlimited WIFI and cell coverage is 5 mins drive away.

We have a shop selling fishing and diving gear and outdoor supplies as well as coffee and food. We also operate a charter boat doing fishing and sightseeing. Need assistance in tidying up the property, and the boat, also can use suitable people in the shop and on the charter boat. Helping arrangements are flexible so that you can take advantage of the local surf beaches, walking tracks or pubs. We will endeavor to include you on fishing or sightseeing trips if you are interested. As a general guideline we will provide accommodation and food for 3 - 4 hours work per day but its OK to go off to explore the island for whole days if you wish.
We are close to local shops and services and the beach. We have a separate sleep out with a double bunk with basic cooking facilities for breakfasts but you would be welcome to dine with us evenings. Lunches tend to be casual affairs depending on the activities.

I am a potter, my studio has gas and wood fired kilns and a small gallery out the front. I live with my son Reuben (10) 15 chickens, 2 cats, 2 rabbits and 2 dogs.
We like hosting independent, practical, creative types who immerse into the lifestyle on the Barrier.
The type of work depends on what projects are going on at the time.... gardening, potting, building, cleaning, firewood etc I like to tap into peoples strengths and interests to determine what sort of thing suits them best.

I have a small house where I live near the sea with my young boxer dog. There is loads of jobs needing doing both inside and out. Gardening,firewood,window cleaning, spouting cleaning. To name a few. You can google Medlands beach if you want an idea of the situation. I have a spare bedroom but otherwise it is shared close quarter living. The dog too! The beach is a 5 min walk away. The area is rural and backs on to natural bush...

Our Community was born in 1975 when a group of young friends including my father and uncle got together and bought this land to start a community of like minded people, in that first period they built the communal house we call the A-frame, established big gardens and had dreams of more communal space such as yoga studios and library but as the people had different ideas and focus in there lives they mostly left the Island.

My partner and I are now living on the land, with renewed energy to revive the community, and we invite you to be a part of that.

The things we are working on at the moment are establishing organic permiculture gardens, track work, mud brick composting toilet and stuff like that.

At this time we don't have much income so unfortunately we cant supply your food, although we can share meals together some times.
This offer is for accommodation only.
So because of this we only ask for two 6 hour days per week of work and the rest of the time you are free t... more inside
