We are currently taking a break from Helpx for a while but we may have paid work available for the right people either hourly, or potting on contract in our nursery where you are paid per plant, mostly 25litre & 45litre bags. It is preferred that you can drive a manual vehicle around the nursery (off road). You will need to be able to work neatly & quickly. You should easily be able to make $19-$21 per hour, up to $30 is possible, & has been achieved often before if you are good. Longer term stays only considered. As you will be the only Helpxers, we suggest 2 hrs, & you look after yourself. (RATHER THAN THE STANDARD HELPX DEAL)-for this you would need your own transport too) We provide unlimited free wifi that's pretty reliable too. We have a 6ha block, of which 4ha is in nursery and garden centre, remainder orchard, veges, ornamental planting. A small stream goes through the middle which we have planted, its great in summer to lie in the shade under a tree. A variety of jobs may be found, usually nursery related jobs working with our permanent staff including potting, weeding etc. We are a kiwi/Thai couple with 3 kids at home, a ragdoll cat, & alpacas. Oh & Muffin the little shizhtu x that "works" for us too everyday- a two for one deal that comes with a staff member LOL.
We have several rooms (all have heaters over winter) close by, but detached to the kitchen & bathroom.

We did Helpx for 3 years but have had hundreds of backpackers of many nationalities over the last 15 years, especially till 2010 when we were market gardening so relate well to most people. It is predominantly outside work, sometimes its wet, sometimes its dirty. If you need the city life on your doorstep everyday, this isn't the place, were not too far from town, but Kerikeri has no public transport,
We lead a busy life & come & go. Work times would usually be Mon-fri, poss Saturday but always Sunday off,
You'll need to be happy working outdoors, & have some sturdy footwear & warm clothes if its cold.
We have unlimited free wifi available, Skype etc is ok.
When emailing please let us know what date you would like to arrive, how long initially you want to stay, whether you have your own transport, & if you are friends or a couple. If you don't have a photo up, letting us know whether you are guys or girls is also helpful, as we cannot always tell from foreign names LOL.
We also prefer helpers over about 22 years old, or younger if you have several good feedbacks.
