Looking for a SINGLE person at the moment to come and help and stay. Someone who likes outside work!

Our family lives on a lifestyle property in beautiful Pleasant Valley (just 10kms mountain side of Geraldine). We homeschool our children, with just the younger two boys still at home - aged 15 and 16

Our property sits in the view of the Four Peaks Mountains, and has trees, creeks, and a spring-fed, home-made swimming pool. We graze sheep on our 12 acre property. We have two home orchards, raspberries as well as a large veggie garden.

We eat largely non- processed wholefoods homecooked meals, fresh veges and fruit. We make our own yoghurt from raw milk and make our own bread.

We also have our own natural swimming pool and camping ground. So you would be welcome to swim or if you like tenting - we have tents or a bus in the camping ground.

HELP in the garden needed!! Weeding, picking and stewing fruit, or if you prefer inside jobs I have spring ( summer!) cleanin... more inside

Hi, Our property is located just out of the small town of Geraldine. We have been here a couple of years. With a collection of animals to attend to - sheep, lambs, chickens, bees, a cow and fallow deer - there is always something to be done around here. We have about 3 acres of woodlot, a small stream and pond and a small orchard.

Our property is totally off grid with only solar power and rain water. This means if you like to shower a lot then our place might not be for you :-) We will eventually build our own strawbale house on site - our architect is currently working on the plans and we will look to start building later this year. In the meantime we are living in a very small shed/garage with our kids. We have a sleepout on site which has a queen size bed to offer. We don't have wifi here but the local library does have free wifi to use (about 10 min drive away). The sleepout has limited solar power to run some LED lights and if its sunny enough to charge phones/tablets etc. ... more inside

We are a Christian homeschooling family, who run a shop in the small town of Twizel in the beautiful Mackenzie Country.

Life is very full with running the household, land and business, plus we are quite involved in our community.

We have quite a few visitors coming and going, but we only have two children left at home during term-time now - 12yo & 19yo.

We have room for one or two Helpxers. You will have your own room in the house. We have broadband internet & WiFi.

We have an adorable labrador dog, a guinea pig & a budgie. We have a small vege garden and enjoy many herbs and flowers in pots and baskets :-)

We need someone who loves cooking and would enjoy making the evening meal for us (and definitely not a vegetarian please!) and can do light household duties to help us run the home and keep it tidy (something we really struggle with currently - we need more time!) and clean. Plenty of opportunities to practise English! And we love European boardgames.

I need a hand - ideally a girl or couple to stay at a rural cottage and help with meals and cleaning. This is ideally for 3 wks or more. And ideally you will have a car? I hope you can help us. It is in a remote but very beautiful location.
