My husband, myself and our 2 girls (21 and 13) live on a lifestyle block in North Auckland not far from Orewa in the North Island. We have sheep, chickens and two cats and are looking for a couple or two singles who would like to help us with our large garden and set it on the path back to its’ former glory. Accommodation will be in our self contained, stand alone - two bedroomed cottage which has its’ own kitchen, bathroom and laundry.

Tasks that need doing include:

Reclaiming walkways in the garden.
Laying mulch
We propose an exchange based on one of the following scenarios - Lodging only – (no meals included) for three hours work per day, x 5 days. Alternatively full Board (3 meals per day) and lodging for six hours work per day, x 5 Days. We will supply gloves and tools but you will need to bring suitable footwear (ie trainers, boots etc)

We are looking for a commitment of at least two weeks and we are quite happy to have more mature help – as long as you are physically able to do the work required. Our Helpx would be best for those with a vehicle as the nearest bus route to where we are is 6 kms away. Orewa Beach and the Whangaparaoa Peninsula are both with 20 minutes drive of our home, which offer fabulous swimming beaches.

Please write to us and let us know what you are looking for and let’s see if we can make this happen! We will open our home to you and look forward to welcoming you to New Zealand.
