We are a beautiful sculptural garden, with winding paths, ponds, and 20 natural sculptures. We also have a protea plant nursery. We require help sporadically for 5 days to 2 weeks to maintain the garden, help with all garden maintenance, help with nursery tree maintenance, collecting wood, removing debris, burning the debris. Most of the work requires some physical fitness. Help around the house could also be available such as ironing or cleaning. We expect to share in the general household duties of cooking and light cleaning. The house is set back from the main road beside a stream and is very private. The bedroom for helpers has a bathroom next door. We are 5 minutes from Warkworth and 5 minutes from Matakana, 15 minutes to Omaha Beach or Snells Beach, and 55 minutes north of the AUCKLAND Harbour bridge. There are buses around the area and buses to the city. We know that when you come to work in our 5 acre property, 2 acres of which are the 'Secret Garden' you will enjoy the experience.
