We will have a vacancy from 25th August for maximum of 2 weeks

We are near Geraldine. 1.5hrs from Christchurch or Lake Tekapo. Very much central South Island

There is also a very good chance of paid work after the 4 hours in exchange for All meals and your own room in the house.

We think you will really enjoy being here as well as working with a group of nice people.

We grow New Zealand Native Trees, shrubs, tussocks and flaxes in our nursery. We always need a hand for all sorts of jobs from nursery through to assistance in the garden.

Lynda and I (Graham) enjoy meeting people with an interest in New Zealand and have explored almost all New Zealand. We hope you will become part of the Family while you are here and good friends by the time you leave.

We are keen on recreational 4WDing and there is always a chance to head out into the hills for a night in a mountain hut.

We are close to Geraldine and not too far from Timaru. Ski Fields are within an hour or so`s drive.

Meals (nothing fancy) accommodation in exchange for 4 hours work per day. We often travel to the West Coast of the South Island and Helpers always enjoy this trip. Anyone staying for more than 2 weeks can just about be guaranteed an overnight 4WD Trip or a West Coast Trip maybe both.
Wireless Broadband. Non Smokers only

We can also be contacted via Whatsapp by entering our mobile number into your contacts.
