I am a Professional Artist/Educator (Photographic Medium), also Gay. I am not vegetarian. I live in small scenic rural settlement and need property maintenance help (mostly: landscaping & gardening. etc.) from time to time. Current Help (Jan 2020): Create a new vegetable garden, landscaping, odd jobs, (IT website work - maybe an option). Please make sure your own profile is current and up-to-date, and be courteous (if you cannot be bothered to communicate or respond to messages, please try elsewhere). I can normally host for a week (please ask/confirm in advance) but it could be longer. My location is easy access to the Catlins District (see photos). Free WiFi. Quiet rural settlement on SHWY 1. Please Note: It is easiest if you have your own transport/vehicle, although not entirely necessary, as Intercity buses do drop-off & collect here. I also have outdoor power and drain, suitable for camper vans, with a dumpsite nearby. Great swimming and walking around the Catlins District, sea/river, fishing. Lots of Natural Wildlife in District, by sea and rivers. You DO need to be able and willing to communicate and understand in English. (NOTE: June to Oct each year is quiet, but ask anyway, I will respond to all enquiries & please acknowledge). If you are using this system and not prepared or able to do suitable helpful work, please go elsewhere. You need to be capable & willing, a suitable age (not in school/college, therefore no experience), as you are here to help/learn. We hosts are more than happy to help however we can. Please, also try new things, you will hopefully enjoy them. Thankyou for reading. **Unfortunately recently an English visitor seems not to either trust this site or we hosts! Thinks she is better than us and that we need re-colonising [her actions upset plans for at least 4 people (2 visitors & 2 hosts)]. This is not considerate and rather patronising behaviour. We in NZ do not need people who behave or treat us this way. Hosts beware.** (Jan 2020).
