Last Updated: October 6, 2018

I'm looking for helpxers to come for about one week and help with a tidy up in my garden. The work is available now.

The work will be mainly outdoors, clearing weeds, digging and other general maintenance tasks etc and it's best if you've done this sort of gardening work before.

You must have your own transport because I live in the country, about 15 mins drive from the nearest town (Cromwell) and 45 minutes drive from both Queenstown and Wanaka. The pix below give a sense of the special landscape in these parts.

I offer meals and comfortable private accommodation in my adjacent guest complex for people keen to help with a range of outdoor projects.

I ask people to work 4 hours each day.
