We are renovating our house and developing gardens and a native walkway. So along with the daily chores and animal care there is always something that needs doing.
We like helpers that are easy going, friendly and with some common sense. Some days you will be left to work independently other times you will work with us, usually about 4 -5 hours a day depending on the job. There may be times you can do a full day then have a full day to go off and explore.

I love doing all sorts of crafts, mosaics, sewing, woodwork and wearable art to name a few! Happy to do a project with you if your interested and time allows.
There is no public transport near where we live but I am happy to pick you up from Waikari or nearby. I am also in Christchurch at least once a week.
