Kia ora,

If you are coming through Nelson we are presently available to host you for between 4 to 6 days up until 18th December.
Come and be our Helpxer's and enjoy a wonderful sunny location with gorgeous sea views just 7km from central Nelson, it is a very popular region for travellers with access to the Abel Tasman just over an hour away.
You can ride the bicycle trail into town which takes about 20 minutes or else a bus stop not far away or even better if you have your own transport. We designed and built our home, constructed from Adobe Blocks which is a sustainable method of building using local materials such as clay and straw, it keeps everyone cool on the hot days and warm and dry on the coldest. Mostly, there is just the two of us and our cat, we both work so weekend starts are usually our preference for up to one week Helpxing or more if it suits. We ask 4 hours per day but are flexible for longer days and then take a day or two off to explore the region. We have a... more inside

Hello Helpers

11/12/2018
I'm in need of some help for about a week starting as soon as possible. We will be mainly mulching (putting straw around trees)plus a few other garden related things.

I have a lovely block of land between Nelson and the Able Tasman park. I always have projects on, usually landscaping in one form or another.
If you feel like having a break from your travels for a week or more, and it would be best if you have your own transport, and this sounds like your thing, get in touch.

Warm regards

Chris

We are a family of five, originally from the Netherlands, but who have managed to escape the rain and 'flat-ness' and are now living in the most magical spot on the waterfront (see the view from our veranda below) in Riwaka/Motueka, close to the Abel Tasman.

Suzanne works as a GP and Michiel as a beekeeper. Our 3 kids (1, 3 and 7 years old) and our very friendly (but overly fit) dog Hank do need care and attention which makes life busy at times.

As we travelled lots ourselves we love meeting travellers from different countries, hearing your stories and showing you what life in this area can be like. We love the outdoors and there are so many opportunities here for f.e. tramping, mountain biking and kayaking.

We are looking for a positive and energetic couple or traveller, who love kids and dogs. As we have a separate sleep out, you will be able to have your own space to have some rest and privacy.

In return we will ask you to help us out in the garden, with househol... more inside

We are a on larger section 10k up the Motueka Valley which we need to prepare for a wedding in March. We need to replant and clean up. I need help in clearing the gardens and untangling the wilderness so it's quite a bit of labor. We have dogs and cats and horses. The bonus is you are right by the Motueka river with its lovely swimming holes and the Waiwero forest if you love walking. We have 10 American Miniature horses and if there is no work around home then you can come and help me brush and paddock manage them. We only have 1 queen bed spare so can take up to 2 if you want to share a bed. We are looking for somebody January through to the end of Febuary.
