We have 3/4 acre in Kawakawa township, with a lovely old villa, some native bush, and a high maintenance property. The work is your choice of :
- "lawns" on a 30 degree slope or worse, cut with a weedeater, hover mower and flax knife.

- we have a small vegetable garden and there are other gardening jobs

- cutting and poisoning bamboo (snip and dab).

- cutting and poisoning tobacco plant (furry nightshade, grows to a large tree), privet, pampas grass, gorse, and a list of other big nasties.

- cleaning up (by hand) the native bush, which suffers from jasmine, honeysuckle, ivy, the privet and tobacco plant, and more small nasties.

- for rainy days there are indoor jobs, such as finishing the bed in the last picture.

- for a capable person, there is house painting and boat maintenance.

Town is 5 minutes walk one way, the coach stop (for bus to Bay of Islands) is closer, and the heated olympic size swimming pool is 2 minutes the other way.

Our usual diet is high on salads, pies and veges. Changes can be made for vegetarians, vegans and others.
