Kia ora tatou,

We are a family with two kids (8 and 3) looking for people to help out around the place. Work can include gardening, tree planting, pruning fruit trees, childcare, mowing lawns, chopping wood, building, repairs and maintenance, housework etc.

We are a tri-lingual family speaking Te Reo Maori, swiss-german and English. If you speak Te Reo or swiss-german, that would be extra awesome.

We are into permaculture and climate justice activism, and are involved in Parihaka and marae around here.

We have a spare bedroom in our house or you can stay in your van/tent. We are mostly vegetarian. We live on SH45 - also known as Surf Highway for all its amazing surf breaks - a couple of kilometres north of Pungarehu.

We are looking for people from now to 20 December 2018 and then again late January to mid March 2019.

Kia Ora and welcome to Ratanui

Dianne and Stefan would be pleased to host HelpX clients - Ratanui is a beautiful property consisting of 8.5 acres of 'park-like' grounds and large gardens plus a small accommodation environment comprising of 10 motel units. We are situated 6 minutes drive from the city centre (realistically you would require your own transport as too far to walk).

We would love to be able to offer some Taranaki enthusiasm in return for a mixture of hospitality, gardening, housework and handyperson skills.
Presently we are looking for help in a section of the garden that requires a huge 'spruce up'. We require help with pruning and clearing of a rogue ground cover.
We would require 4 hours per day or alternatively we are very flexible for full day's work and then days off. In the past helpers have worked 6 days/week.
We can provide you with your own private studio accommodation (queen bed), with kitchenette, bathroom etc.Free Wifi. We can provide $$$... more inside

We are a semi-retired couple who love our idyllic life in the peaceful country-side in north Taranaki with sea and mountain views. Our rural paradise is 20 minutes to the airport and the Valley Shopping Centre and Surf beaches and Mount Taranaki is a short drive away.

There is always plenty to do on our 1-acre lifestyle block from developing our boutique organic gardens, tending to the productive areas already established and the many varieties of vegetables, fruit and herbs planted into every available space. You will learn so much from Phill as he has years of experience and is enthuiastic about sharing his organic growing and gardening knowledge with anyone who is interested.

We're looking for help raising and planting out seedlings, developing garden beds, working with water reticulation (dam building anyone?) and meal preparation. We also need small signs and labels for garden plant names. We prune shelter trees and cultivate for compost and worm farms (you might be amazed). We also have some painting, tiling and carpentry work for anyone with skills in that area.
