Currently looking for helpers (prefer a couple or two strong lads) with experience in gardening and house painting. I've got several large garden areas that need weeding and mulching. Firewood chopping and stacking, plus moving a pile of topsoil into a vegetable garden. About a weeks work.

About us: we have a lovely rural property 10 minutes from Kerikeri township and five minutes from Waipapa near a kiwifruit orchard. Lots of beautiful bird life live in the area. We are bonsai artists and into pottery.

We often need help with gardening, tree maintenance (great if you can use a chainsaw), firewood collection, painting, house maintenance, etc, I think you get the picture.

The current projects are:
1. General weeding of the gardens
2. Firewood collecting, chopping and storage.
3. House spring cleaning if it rains

We offer basic meals, but would appreciate helpers preparing and cooking meals and making a small contributions at times. We usually ask our guest to cook a meal from their country once during their stay to share your culture.
There is a lovely sun filled double room with your own bathroom. Work is for 4 hours work each day. Leaving lots of time for you to explore the area. Happy to discuss other options if this doesn't suit. No smoking and we aren't vegetarians. Can pick up from Intercity bus or airport. Your own car would be better as this is a rural location. Have one dog (Sam) and a cat (Sandi) so must like animals, they are really friendly.
