We're looking for a helper(s) who would be available from 13 June or soon after.
We live on a 20 acre lifestyle block, with a few sheep and cattle, three cats, a guitar, piano and a large organic vege garden and fruit trees. Our children are grown up and only one (18)still lives at home, and travels to Chch to study. We like meeting new people and we are happy to help you practice your English :)

We have bicycles you can borrow to explore the neighbourhood or bike to the beach. The outside hot spa is marvelous on cold evenings. Accommodation is a comfortable sleepout, using the bathroom in the house and sharing meals with us.

At the moment I'd like help in the garden - the autumn always brings lots of garden tidying. Dishwashing is always appreciated, some house cleaning, and if you can cook that is even better. If you are technically savvy I have some audio cassettes I'd like transferred to digital sometime. And if you want to see animals - there is a small amount of fa... more inside

If you enjoy working with horses and an outdoor lifestyle we would like to hear from you.
My husband and I run a small horse and cattle farm, backing on to Forestry and walking tracks. 10klms from Rangiora.10 mins drive from beach.

We need helpers for general farm work- chainsaw and weed whacker experience is a bonus.

Our horses are experienced competitors in Endurance and other deciplines,so helpers must be very experienced in riding in open spaces at pace and on all terrain.

Does exploring the surrounding countryside on horse back and travelling with horses appeal?

The help we require involves day to day care of horses and riding out plus some gardening and farm work.

Accommodation is a private self contained sleepout suitable for couples, your own vehicle is essential as we are out of town.


This is our busiest time of year so if you are keen we have plenty to keep you occupied and would love to hear from you.

Our property was previously an orchard but is now a small lifestyle block with main house and a separate 1 bedroom self contained cottage for accommodation. The cottage has a kitchen, bathroom and laundry. The kitchen has cooking appliances, plates, cups etc. There is a double bed in the bedroom and a comfortable double sofa bed in lounge. The cottage is 55m2 in area.

It is in a rural area 10mins from Rangiora and 45mins from central Christchurch by car. We are a professional couple (engineer and nurse) with two boys aged 10 and 12 who are always full of fun and energy. We are from NZ but lived in Scotland and travelled around Europe while there for 5 years. We have 2 cats, 1 dog and 1 pet sheep.

We have really enjoyed the many HelpX experiences we have had getting to know people from other parts of the world which has been the best part of the experience for our family.

We are looking for general help around the property such as gardening, maintenance, painting, f... more inside

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.

If you like watching tv or playing on a pc all day this place is not for you, we have limited internet access and NO cell phone coverage.

Accommodation is a self contained two bedroom cottage, separate from the ... more inside

We are a large mixed cropping and sheep farm. Situated 45 minutes from Christchurch. Leeston is our closest township, 4km away which has lots of shops, a gym, library, art gallery, hotel etc. You will need your own transport.
Three hours help for the day would be great but flexible on this if you want a day off to explore.
My husband and I can offer a variety of jobs on farm and around house and garden depending on your skills eg fencing, firewood, sheep etc. At this time of year I would like some help with raking the autumn leaves.
Our children have left home so have their rooms as accommodation also a separate outside room with own TV, desk, piano.
