We are a family that have a 10 acre lifestyle block 35 minutes north of Christchurch. We endeavor to have a self sufficient lifestyle with lots of organic vege gardens, orchards, chooks, goats, 3 horses and working dogs etc.

Our property is located in peaceful private surroundings, only a 5 minute drive to the nearest township.

We have a small N.Z Native Tree Nursery, our plants are grown from locally sourced seed and are in various stages of growth that we are needing help with potting on.
We're also in need of help with some carpentry work in a wee rustic cottage we are restoring.

We are flexible with when you work and stop for breaks. If you wanted to do more hours one day and less the next that is o.k. We expect about 4-5 hours help a day depending on the work you are asked to do (less for more physical work, more for easier work etc) and in return we enjoy creating an enjoyable experience for our helpers.

Our 4 children ages 13, 12, 10 and 1 are keen horse riders a... more inside

We have helpers from September but would love to have more from October onwards :-)
We are so lucky to live on a 10 acre life style block situated in North Canterbury . We have horses which are used primarily for dressage, show jumping and eventing. We also have a lovely property with a large easy care garden!
It would be great to have some help in the garden, general weeding and spraying, but mainly we need help exercising and caring for the horses. So we would love to hear from helpers that are experienced horse people! Especially those that have riding experience in dressage,show jumping and or eventing!! We would love it if you are able to ride without supervision! Our horses are competition horses!!,this means that we cannot have helpers that are beginner riders or inexperienced riders!!
We are looking for help from September onwards!!
We have 4 children, all are school age.
We are non smokers!!
during the winter we love to ski!!
We have lovely Warm and clean Acoma... more inside

We run an "Alternative Lifestyle" Bed & Breakfast and adult event venue, in rural North Canterbury. We have large gardens (fruit, berries, vegetables and leisure) and extensive tree hedges that take more time than we ourselves have for upkeep, so we're looking particularly for help with the outdoors. We use our gardens to feed guests the freshest possible food.

Our place is unusual, not for the prudish, but we do have a lot of fun!

We'd recommend you take a look at our website before you contact us, so you get a better idea of what we are about.

We'd recommend anyone who comes to help out has their own transport, as the nearest public transport is 13kms away, in Rangiora, or a weekday only twice daily commuter shuttle to Christchurch that runs early morning and late afternoons.

Nestled in the beautiful Southern Alps is the historic settlement of Cass (approx half way between Christchurch and Greymouth). I am offering private accommodation (separate from the house with own bathroom)in exchange for odd jobs - painting, gardening and lawn mowing.
I also have a horse drawn wagon seen in the photo's which is needing a keen horseperson to drive and keep working.
There is plenty to do in the area including fishing on many of the nearby high country lakes (1.6 km to Lake Sarah) day walks/ tramping in Arthurs Pass National Park and Craigieburn forest Park, skiing on one of the 5 local ski fields, four wheel driving, Scree jumping (down Sugar Loaf). A short drive to Cave stream scenic reserve (one of the south Islands best free activities) and Castle Hill natural rock climbing park (where scenes from Lord of the Rings and Narnia were filmed). Other nearby facilities are The Bealy Hotel (10mins) and Arthurs Pass 20mins. In exchange I would like four hours work... more inside

4ha lifestyle block with 8yr old planting of natives and organic vege garden. You would need to be a non-smoker.
Vegetarian, bilingual household (german and english) comprising of 1 female adult, 4 horses, 2 dogs and 3 cats. 7km from Oxford township, 62 km from Christchurch. Close to scenic walking tracks (Mt. Oxford). Wonderful views and great riding country. In the past most helpers arrived and did not want to go anywhere for weeks.
Own transport needed if you want to get around - however regular lift into Christchurch and Rangiora possible.
I live a busy lifestyle and would like someone who would fit as part of our family of humans and animals. Due to currently working long hours on 2 days of the week you will need to be able to cope with lots of time on your own - doing your own cooking on those days.
You would need to be female and possess maturity - don't contact if you haven't been long away from mum's caretaking. Can only cater for 1 person at a time.

We live on a small block just north of Christchurch with our son Noah, daughter Louisa, Beagle and Labrador dogs, cats, and sheep.

Clarkville is less than 20 minutes from Christchurch airport and we can pick up and drop back there if required.

We are in our late 30's and would enjoy having people of a similar age to stay. We like to interact with our helpers and learn about you and your culture/country. You must have initiative and be able to work unsupervised, but we are happy to write lists of things to do. Cleaning up after yourselves and helping with meals is part of the deal. Helpers must have host references.

We are looking for some help with various odd jobs around the place like:
gardening
weeding
lawn mowing
fencing
gathering/cutting firewood
Irrigation and ditch digging
Dog walking
Pruning
Babysitting

We have bikes and helmets available and there is a lovely reserve with a stream nearby which is great for a walk with the dogs. Wireless bro... more inside

Hi there. We are needing some help to crank up the garden this Spring, and to complete a number of landscaping and small building jobs. We would also be looking for a couple that could possibly housesit in Mid-late September.

We live in an historic house on a farm,largely cropping and deer. We are interested in people who know their way around plants and physical work, plus people who are prepared to share cooking and being part of the household.

We live near Gore Bay,a great surf beach. We have bikes you can borrow and there's fantastic walking in 40 hectares of trees. We live with our two teenagers and a dog!

We have been WWOOF hosts for over seven years and enjoy sharing our place with like minded people.

Hello, we have a 'boutique' dairy farm on the edge of Oxford, North Canterbury, where we sell fresh, real milk through our Village Milk vending machine. We milk around 20 cows year round and this has been a very popular addition to our farm. Our eldest daughter has enjoyed doing Help Exchanges overseas so we would love to give someone the same opportunity!

We have a few jobs on at the moment that we would like some help with including altering a shed, and clearing yard areas. We also have ongoing jobs such as feeding out, weed spraying, gardening, tidying and household chores so depending on the day there will be some variety.Also it will be hay making season soon so there will be bales to help cart and tractors to drive.

We would like one person aged 20 and over who has reasonable English and has had a little bit of experience on a farm already so they are ready to jump in to help with anything. Hours/days of work are flexible but we would expect around 4-5 hours a day, depen... more inside
