We are friendly and welcoming (and grandparents)who live on 25 beautiful acres of land 5 km outside of Amberley and 50km outside of Christchurch (with a bus service if needed), SH 1 is 1Km from our property. Among other things, we have 1300 olive trees and 400 lavender plants to tend to. Our property is 18 years in the making, and we're proud to call it our home.Our home has been relocated to our property and we have a spare room for anyone who comes to stay. It has an en suite for ease and comfort for visitors. We have 2 cats, a dog and l5 chooks, all very friendly indeed.
This year we have produced over thirty litres of olive oil which we see as a huge success and the help of our HelpX people is very much appreciated. The area in which we live is changing from farming to wine growing,and we are in the middle of the Waipara Valley,very close to the Waipara vineyards which are producing some of New Zealands best wines.

In exchange for your hours of helping, you get a large room with big windows and two single beds, which could be pushed together for a couple and an electric blanket for the cold nights! In addition, helpers get delicious meals. We love to have you cook for us and exchange ethic recipes if you wish. Help needed can vary, depending on the needs of the moment, everything from chopping fire wood to attending olives or lavender, or helping around the home. We look forward to hearing from you!
