HELP! We need a helper to sort out our garden for us and make it winter ready. No heavy work, just weeding, cutting back bushes, get rid of leaves, clean the veggie patch and general light garden stuff. The garden is not even that big, but our lives are so busy these days that we just canít find the time to do it ourselves, so we would love a helper for about a week Some time after the 5th of June. It should be a pretty easy stay, with light work, good food and company. We are a Kiwi-German-Italian family of 4 and two original Kiwi cats at the very edge of Palmerston North overlooking the Manawatu River. Palmerston North is halfway between Wellington and the Central Plateau Volcanos (Tongariro), and can be easily reached by Intercity Bus or Naked/Mana Bus. We have a pretty luxurious downstairs bedroom with a comfortable double bed and its very own modern en-suite bathroom. The area is great for running, walking and cycling along the river just behind our garden fence, or to enjoy t... more inside

UPDATE 6 June: Looking for helpers from around 11th June for 5-7 days

Kia ora, we have a large 100 year old villa with a big garden and an orchard. We would love you to help out with maintenance of the grounds! You don't need any special skills, as your tasks will include weeding, trimming and pruning and possibly mowing lawns. There may sometimes also be small DIY jobs. In exchange for approx 4-5 hours work per day, we will offer you full board.

You'll be sure to enjoy your stay, it is a peaceful area surrounded by nature and birds and only 5kms to the beach. There is plenty of space in the house and a outdoor spa pool which is fantastic for relaxing in and stargazing! You will have your own room, and a friendly local family to share your time with. I have two young boys, and help with child care could be an option. There are cows and sheep in our paddocks and we have kunekune pigs and free range chickens. We would welcome a single person, a couple or even a small gro... more inside

We offer short term farm woofing experience at Wairangi Station from time to time.

This extended (Queen's Birthday) weekend (1-4 June) we have a project that could keep from 1 to 4 people interested.

The main project for the weekend will be cutting, stacking firewood, and gathering and tying brushwood into bundles to go into riverbank protection bunds. 4 hours per day will leave time for the other experiences at the farm. Or we could work longer some days to leave a day free.
If at least one good cook takes on food preparing responsibility as their work time that could make all of us happier.

Where? - Our farm is 2000 ha of steep hills, streams, gullies, trees, grazing cattle and sheep. You'll meet the dogs of the two young farm Managers, and see many beehives, high views to the ocean 15km away, bright starry nights, cliffs and waterfalls. You could feel gusty winds, unexpected rain and chilling cold outside, with warm wood fires inside. You can explore more than 50 km ... more inside

We would love to welcome helpers to our villa style character house just outside of Palmerston North. The house is located on a small lifestyle block with a few chickens, some pet cows, cats and a dog. We are hoping to get more animals at some stage, but we need help preparing the paddocks. This will involve some minor fencing work, taking out weeds (mainly gorse) and some general tidying up. We may also need a some help with the garden and feeding the animals.

The work can be a bit boring so we prefer only to have helpers for 1 week.

One of our priorities right now is to get the fences sorted, so anyone with fencing experience would be especially welcome.

In return for ~5 hours of helping out a day we offer accommodation and meals. We like to take turns cooking, so you would be required to cook a couple of meals - but nothing fancy is expected! The property is located 10 minutes from Palmerston North, with a nice view of the city and is in a friendly and peaceful ... more inside

We are hoping to find our next Helpx from end of June or early July.

We have both traveled and lived with other families so we know what it's like being in someone else's home far away. We also know what it's like when you just need a break from hostels and all the other travelers and a place to collect your thoughts and make your next travel plans. I used to find hostels felt so dirty and public and hard to keep your belongings safe and make your next travel plans. We hope our home can be a nice experience for you for you to see some of the area and experience our lifestyle and plan your next travel destination.

We have a 22 month old boy who's a really easy cheerful toddler and my partner works long hours contracting on farms and I started a new business this year so we could just do with some extra hands to help with household chores, cooking, looking after our toddler and cleaning. We start work around 6 and he needs walking to his daycare at 8am so we would leave him wit... more inside
