Helpers needed start of July through Aug 2018... for later dates please write to us :-)

This will be winter time, and mostly devoted to wood projects, from firewood to wood flooring.

Kathy will be away and Bruce will be running things. Maybe more social than our norm, which is:

YOU are perfect for here if: you identify as an introvert, you are a hard worker, don't mind spending a large part of the day by yourself or with your fellow helpers, and are interested in reconnecting with nature and having a bit of a retreat.

We are an American (San Francisco) ex-pat couple, no kids, on a lifestyle block over Akaroa Harbour, Wainui Valley; our home is our sanctuary; lots of interests and projects and try to cater to wwoofer interests. All skill-sets welcome. Couples or self-guided individuals. Short or longs stays okay. We enjoy intellectual conversation, metaphysics, meditation, making and eating good food, & board games.

We ask for 4 hours work per day for room and board. Help in the kitchen and cleaning up after oneself is also expected.

We share evening meals together; other meals at your time. Vegetarian and Vegan OK. Vegans may have to do some cooking for themselves. Good cooks welcome as lots of emphasis on good eating here.

Most work is either gardening or tree related-- weeding, mulching, composting, planting, harvesting, felling, brush clearing, chipping, log splitting, chainsaw milling.

We are working towards a lot of ferrocement work- paths, outbuildings, sacred geometry structures.

Working with permaculture and forest gardening.

We used to help organize Kiwiburn, the New Zealand regional Burning Man event.

Happy to host French speaking helpers but be warned-- Akaroa is not very French, just some street signs, despite what the tourist advertisements may say ;-)
