Spring will be soon here and we are planning new projects, would you like to help us? What you get to enjoy: time in a beautiful architecturally designed home with beautiful views, garden to table food, wifi, Netflix, a chance to work harmoniously with us and learn more about our approach to sustainable living, care of our animals and permaculture.

We built our home 20 months ago and have been enjoying developing the land for lifestyle and sustainable living. We have an orchard of 78 fruit trees and berries, productive vegetable beds, 13 Heritage chickens for eggs, 6 sheep for meat, we also produce our honey from our flowhive. We are establishing our shelter belt, a wood lot and a native grove along the Kaukapakapa river that flows past our property.

Our home has been featured in the news if you would like to read more: https://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/homed/houses/100447372/future-proofing-two-couples-new-build-designed-for-multigenerational-living

Projects planned for this spring include building 2 more garden beds, developing a subtropical area that will include bananas, paw paw and other plants, preparing a bank to plant pumpkins, zucchini and cucumbers and home maintenance tasks.

We are open to having a couple work and learn with us to complete our projects. Carpentry skills would be an asset.

Meals for vegetarians, GF or other
dietary needs can be provided.

We are a multigenerational, non smoking, no children no cats or dog household.

For a HelpX guests we have a queen room with separate bathroom. We love sharing our home and glorious environment with guests.

Owners: Bets and Bob, Karen and Nick
