Our farm is certified organic. We (John and Michele) have since retired from commercial market gardening but are now developing the property with the idea of setting up a CSA. Michele is an Interfaith minister and a Community is growing around the Inter-spiritual gatherings that are offered weekly and monthly. We need help with this ongoing development. The work involves landscaping, gardening, carpentry, cleaning and a range of other activities. If you are interested in helping us, we would be very grateful. Amberley village, close to the wine growing area, is 6km from farm and offers great facilities. We are vegetarian/vegan and are happy to cater for strict vegans. The farm is 15 acres set in a pretty part of the countryside - on the edge of Waipara. You can walk to the river in 30 minutes and to the sea in 45 minutes. If you have your own vehicle there is much to explore here. We are 50 minutes from the edge of Christchurch, 25 minutes from Maukatere (Mt Grey), 1 hour 15 minutes from Hanmer Springs, 2 hours from Kaikoura. Minimum stay of 1 week. Accommodation will be in a caravan.
