Hello there - you are welcome to email me if you require a helpx place.
I am a secondary school art teacher, with grown up kids and 2 lovely grandaughters. I also have responsibility in my school for placing and caring for International students from many parts of the world. My partner Teumu, who is a musician, and is currently working in the horticultural field, is also living with me. My mum was living with us but has just moved into a residential place. We have a busy and interesting lifestyle.
My home is 15km from Napier and Hastings cities. It is a very tranquil sunny rural lifestyle, with a mandarin grove, vegetable and ornamental gardens, fruit and large trees.
My home is on the boundary of small village, tidal estuary, 600m to beach and rivermouth.
I love travelling having recently been to India, but home is my special place.

I Have a dingy and kayak for your use. 6km from start of Cape Kidnappers gannet colony trek. When time permits I try to complete some of my own art work. I have 2 cats, chooks, cockatiels. Bikes for use - there are amazing bike trails around that wind through orchards, past lagoons, beaches and on to the cities of Hastings & Napier.

I ask Helpxers to mow, rake,weed, prune, pick, cut and stack firewood, as well as waterblast, clean gutters, and daily house maintenance.

It is fabulous to belong to Helpx and host travellers. I really enjoy it and all who have come here have given a lot.
However, if you do not belong to Helpx and use a friend's (who does) site to contact hosts, then you compromise the integrity of the organisation. You read my details and feedback and I would like to read yours. So, join up!!!! Thankyou.
