Our property is a 2 hectare lifestyle block with an extensive garden and a menagerie of animals - see our website for more details - breedenbroek.com
I am an at-home Mum/Gardener and my partner, Rudi, is an air traffic controller. We have 2 children - Josie (18 years old), whose main passion is horse riding, regularly competing in dressage competitions and showing. Our 21 year old son, Nic, is studying a Financial Engineering degree at Singapore University.
We occasionally have garden groups coming to visit and so the garden has become my place of work. As the garden is rather large, I'm needing some help with weeding, mulching, pruning and general upkeep of the property.
We are happy to provide meals and accommodation - we have a newish bedroom, with a Queen sized bed (plus can add a single) and bathroom in exchange for gardening, cooking, painting and the odd household chore (in the event of wet weather). You would help yourself to lunch and breakfast most of the time and dinner is provided. The expectation of working hours is 4 to 5 hours per day.
Stays of up to 5/6 days work well for us, but it can often be an option to stay longer.
We are not on a bus route so it's an advantage if you have your own transport. However, we are only 5 minutes drive from the township of Rangiora and go there every day. So we're happy to pick up/drop off at the bus stop. We are 35 minutes from the centre of Christchurch.
In winter months, if you're keen on skiing we are 1 & 1/2 hours away from Mt Hutt and Porter Heights ski fields.
In summer, feel free to spend time relaxing in our swimming and spa pool.
Free, unlimited internet.
We are a smoke free household.

WE ARE NEEDING SOMEONE FOR A WEEK MID-SEPTEMBER. THE WORK REQUIRES SOME STRENGTH AS WE NEED TO SHIFT SOME PLANTS AND DIG SOME DECENT SIZED HOLES FOR NEW ONES. OTHERWISE JUST GENERAL GARDEN AND MAINTENANCE WORK.
WE HAVE A COUPLE OF WEDDINGS AND BIG EVENTS COMING UP, SO WANTING TO GET THE GARDEN LOOKING IT'S BEST :)
