We live on a 26 acre peaceful lifestyle property with native stands of bush, hills, meadows and lots of birds including: wood pigeons, tuis, fantails, moreporks, pukekos, pheasants, etc. We have two flocks of sheep and a few calves which graze on the hills.
Next year we’re going to begin a large native revegetation project. We’ll be planting approximately 11,000 native trees that will add to old native stands in order to create a total of 6 ha. of native bush. We need some help with weed eradication in order to prepare for planting as well as various other jobs that need to be done: splitting firewood, weeding, mowing, keeping the vegetable garden going, etc.
We’re looking for a pleasant, enthusiastic couple (preferably vegetarian but not required) who enjoy being in contact with nature, gardening and being involved in a worthwhile project. For accommodation there’s a small cottage with its own bathroom. Ideally stay for one or two weeks, 5 hours a day. We provide the main (vegetarian meal) at lunch time. Other meals are up to you. There’s a kitchen near the cottage for your use where breakfast and evening snacks can be prepared.
Starting date from January 6th onwards until April 2020.
