This is an intentional community started in 1974, with approx 20 adults and 10 children. It is set up as a village with families having their own homes and gardens, and a central community meeting house which includes 3 bedrooms for visitors. The common land is farmed with mostly beef cows, a milking cow and some goats and horses.
Work includes gardening, general farm work, house maintenance, tree pruning and weed eradication. Because of the community set up we do not offer a full exchange service. Helpers stay in the community house and need to do 21 hours work each week to cover your accommodation and some food. The hours are usually done over 5 or 6 days so you can have 1 or 2 days off! Some basic food-stuff is provided, such as rice, oats, lentils, flour, sugar, tea, coffee, salt n pepper and usually there is some fresh milk and garden produce. Organic eggs are available for $5 per dozen. You need to... more inside

We are a couple living on a lifestyle block in beautiful Golden Bay. We make solid timber furniture and other art works which we sell in our Gallery (Weka Arts). We offer good food and private(separate) accommodation. We have a good orchard and veggie garden and our chooks keep us in fresh eggs.
At this stage we are looking for helpers with building skills and people who don't mind digging and working in our gardens. A couple would be ideal especially if one can cook to help Karen in the kitchen sometimes. We do not accept tobacco smokers.

Retired teacher aiming towards sustainable lifestyle and willing to share the journey.
Straw bale house, solar water and electricity, hybrid vehicle, organic gardens and chooks.
Happy to teach new skills whilst mainly looking for muscle where mine are failing.
From about 25th Sept I am looking for 1 person or a couple to help remodel my vegetable garden. This will involve a lot of heavy digging as well as learning organic gardening techniques. Other lighter tasks will give some variety and there will be opportunities to explore the paradise of Golden Bay.
Expect 4-5 hours help with meals supplied/preparation shared.
Possibility of also learning from Host #20859 in a different type of sustainable environment.

I have 2 energetic teenage boys, dog, cat, cow, goats. We are 12km from Takaka, on the side of the valley, with beautifull mountain and valley views, a walk to a swimming hole at the river below. My circumstances have recently changed and I am now running the property on my own, having my boys about half the time. This means I really need independently capable guests! Guests share daily household life, cooking cleaning, child interaction etc. Accomodation is in a yurt. I have a tipi & yurt making business on the land, though this has it's own workers so help is not needed there. I have to work at the Tipi and Yurt business too, so guests also have to be happy working alone.. I am not growing much veggies these days, lots of fruit and timber trees, and a few animals. Outside physical work is varied land maintenance with creative building projects. I have need for someone experienced on a scrubcutting/brushcutting machine ... If it works well, I may also have some paid work to offer... more inside

I am seeking energetic happy helpers who enjoy outdoor labour. A couple with their own transport would be ideal, so they can take advantage of all the wonderful sights and activities Golden Bay has to offer. The work can be physically hard, as I will ask you to do those projects that my aging body can no longer do.

I am offering a more eco friendly & sustainable lifestyle experience. Reuse recyle and renew are my philosophies. Tread lightly. Permaculture principals. Eat seasonal produce. Vegetarian or omnivores welcome. (home raised meat) composting toilet. No T.V. terrible internet connection. acceptable cell phone coverage.

Are you handy with a hammer or enjoy yard landscaping?I have several Building projects, including repairing a roof, building a mother hen run,creating saw horses... I also need help with organic fruit & vegetable gardening and yard maintenance: digging, transplanting, brush and gorse removal, cutting trees & firewood.

I'm looking for either a single person or couple that may like to experience living in a tiny house and bus in beautiful Golden Bay. From mid October to mid December, and then again from February through till late March I am going to be coming and going quite regularly as I work as a walking guide and have several trips on. The person/s I am looking for must enjoy children and have a drivers licence as I have a 4 year old daughter who will be needing some hours of care while I am away (her Granny and father will be around but we're looking for some back up). There is a tiny house to stay in and while I'm away the bus will also be available. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, I look forward to hearing from you :-)
