We are a semi retired couple living on the forest margin, growing vegetables and basket willow. We invite travellers to share our little slice of paradise in exchange for help maintaining our garden and basket willow plantation. We eat mostly organic food and while we eat some meat we can accommodate vegetarians. The famous Mussel Inn is just down the road and we are 5 mins drive from the beach.
Work includes weeding and maintenance of our willow plantation and domestic gardening and property maintenance. Our preference is usually short stays with the option of extending. In return we offer comfortable caravan accommodation, a hot shower and good food. As we are both away from the property sometimes we like our helpers to be capable of working unsupervised.
It is easier if our helpers have a vehicle or are willing to hitch hike as there is no public transport.
Our usual arrangement is 4 hours work for food and accommodation. We provide food for breakfast and lunch so you c... more inside

We live on a beautiful 2 hectare property close to Pohara Beach in Golden Bay. We have a gallery and grow our own food organically.

Hi Helpxers!
We would like to welcome people to come and share our place with us. We are in quite a unique location, in eco-friendly buildings, surrounding by bush next to the Beautiful Able Tasman National Park overlooking Golden Bay.

Work is helping out on the property with establishing trees, gardens and sometimes building projects and over the summer season the cafe-pizzeria on the property.

Please note that we can only take volunteers with valid working holidays visa & IRD number.


There is a preference of 2 weeks stay, but we are flexible and it can be more, or less, as long as we can know sufficiently in advance :)

Accommodation is in earth building on the property.
All electricity is generated by alternative systems on the property. We have composting toilets.
This is a very good experience for people keen to learn about alternative lifestyles and eco-friendly buildings!

Carole is a French girl of 31 and Crian is a Kiwi guy of 41. We also have a dog ... more inside

This is an intentional community started in 1974, with approx 20 adults and 10 children. It is set up as a village with families having their own homes and gardens, and a central community meeting house which includes 3 bedrooms for visitors. The common land is farmed with mostly beef cows, and some goats and horses.
Work includes gardening, general farm work, house maintenance, tree pruning and weed eradication. Because of the community set up we do not offer a full exchange service. Helpers stay in the community house and need to do 20 hours work each week to cover your accommodation and some food. The hours are usually done over 5 days so you can have 2 days off! The basic food-stuff is provided, such as rice, oats, lentils, flour, sugar, tea, coffee, salt n pepper and usually there is some garden produce. Organic eggs are available for $6 per dozen. You need to bring your own cheese, meat, bread if you don't want to bake your own etc

The minimum stay time is 2 weeks. ... more inside

We are by the sea in the Awaroa Inlet, on cleared private land in the middle of the Abel Tasman National Park, one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand. Think golden sand beaches, crystal blue sea and native bush. We've been hosting young people, mainly from France and Germany, as Wwoofers since 2014 and really enjoy the interaction. We will need helpers in September and October at different times. Also in December. Beautiful times of the year!! Our accommodation is basic but comfortable with hot showers and flush toilets.

Hi, I`m Rich, by name anyway! I live 12km South from Takaka, on the side of the valley, with beautiful mountain and valley views, and a walk to a swimming hole at the river below. I have a 14 yr old boy, a dog and a cat. Since 2016 I am now running the whole property on my own, which is quite daunting, and having my boy about half the time. This means I really need independently capable guests! Guests share daily household life, cooking cleaning etc. Accommodation is in your own beautiful 5m diameter yurt. I have a tipi and yurt making business on the land, check out the website www.yurts.co.nz, though this has it`s own workers so help is not needed there. I have to work at the business several days each week, so guests also have to be happy working alone sometimes ... I am not growing much veggies these days, but lots of fruit and timber trees. Outside physical work is varied land maintenance with creative building projects. I have need for someone experienced on a scrubcutting / ... more inside
