Handy with a hammer? interested in mad projects? Current project is relocating vege garden ... building retaining walls, relocating garden shed and compost stalls, building garden beds ... a labour of love to make way for the natural chemical free swimming pool (hopefully in by summer!!). I'm working a lot in May so more of a 'use this as your home base and look after yourself deal' in exchange for a couple of hours a day or day and a half per week ... if you are a landscaper or carpenter and that flexibility suits you ... love to hear from you.

Good folk are most welcome to come and share this beautiful land and my evolving home, garden, orchard, native restoration project 10 km from Nelson.

Works best for people who are self-motivated, preferably skilled/experienced/handy with tools, and who find a bit of hard work satisfying. Practical people rock. Awesome for people who enjoy a bit of time to themselves. 4ish hours a day flexi ... showing some love to the land and my little constellation of cabins and or playing with whatever practical & creative projects are currently happening ...

Things are beautiful but very simple here - off grid (enough solar to run laptops and power tools), water sourced from the stream, composting loos, and outdoor bathroom (photo below). You have your own super-sweet little sleep outs that have been crafted with love and a strong commitment to recycling. Bikes, free wifi, pool (in summer) and some crangadang kayaks are here for your mucking around pleasure.

Sweet-natured, stick & pinecone-obsessed dog and a gaggle of funny chooks come with the deal.

I'm normally working from home and love preparing good meals for or with you - when I'm away for work (a few days a month) you have access to a well-stocked kitchen and can magic up your own feasts - or if you prefer, simply be totally self-contained.

Own transport required ... Nelson region adventure is all within reach, Abel Tasman, Nelson Lakes National Park, Golden Bay etc - town is 10 km away, coast is 2km away. Non-smoking.

I've been blessed with some seriously cool, fun, talented, marvellous people through HelpX... super appreciative and grateful to all.

Enjoy your travels. Ka kite ano
