Our land is 5 acres of regenerating bush and developing food forest in the Kauaeranga Valley, close to Thames. We are committed to developing our land to provide us with food, firewood and clean water. We have established large vegetable gardens and fruit and nut tree orchards. There are beehives and chickens on our property.

We have 2 young children whom we homeschool and we also work from home. (Software development and we also sell "Extractigators" which are tools for removing gorse). We seek help with our gardens, firewood, weed management and building projects, as well as seasonal tasks of harvesting, preserving and processing food.

We're happy to share our knowledge and always have something interesting on the go - Harvesting, planting, winemaking, fermenting, seed saving, grafting, cooking, developing our skills with appropriate technology. We love to meet enthusiastic helpers who have skills to share and a positive attitude. We offer accommodation in a small caravan with a double bed near our house, with 2 homemade meals a day. We will work alongside you and try to be outside as much as possible, working around our commitments with our online work and homeschool activities. Fantastic hiking up the valley and a great community nearby.

We have loads of projects on the go this Spring and we'd love your help. We need some help in our gardens, forest, some building projects, painting cleaning, wine making and playing Lego. If you would like to join our family for a while, we'd love to hear from you. Seeking enthusiastic people with practical skills, or a readiness to learn and get stuck in. Let us know a bit about yourself, and the skills you have if you're interested. Email is the best way to contact us please.
