Young couple from the UK, living in NZ for 4 years. We've recently moved out of the city to a lifestyle block, and slowly getting the swing of things.

Looking for help with general land maintenance; clearing leaves, moving mulch, chopping down trees etc. In exchange for bed and breakfast. Dinner is not provided due to irregular hours of work.

Adam and I both work in the city and are usually up early to beat the traffic.

We have 2 loving dogs named Trigger and Maverick, who are happy to ponder around the garden and watch you work. 2 Kunekune pigs Sloth and Chunk, who just laze around, and Merino Sheep grazing in the back padocks.

No public transport available, so will need your own car to get around. 30 minutes from central christchurch, 20 minutes from the air port and 10 minutes from the beach for a great surf.

We have a small block just up off the end of the Canterbury plains, surrounded by rolling hills. We have a cosy 3 bedroom house that faces the sun and has 2 wood burners, set well back from the road with lots of established trees. Bill is currently working from home, although travels in to Christchurch once a week or so. Marion works for the Department of Conservation, with her field season running from October to February involving trips into the back-country of 10 days at a time - But currently working from home 4 or 5 hours a day. We also have bees, chooks, and cattle. We are heavily into re-vegetating our property with native plants that Marion raises from seed. We are quite a laid back couple, keen trampers, and into cooking good food.
Jobs include weeding, planting, potting-up natives, and other jobs as they come up. Please note that most of our jobs are out of doors and can be quite physical, so if you don't like getting dirty hands this may not be the place for you. We ... 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, 6 horses, 2 dogs and 2 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 3 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.
I prefer peo... more inside
