We are Ngarie, Sam and our delightful daughter Sofia who is 2 years old. We live 2.5kms out of Takaka and know lots of lovely things to do in this area. We are looking for help with cooking, cleaning, gardening, painting and childcare. We have a small BnB on the property that we may ask you to help with too.
Approximately 3- 4 hours a day in exchange for food and lodging.
We have had some helpers stay in their van, which is fine too.

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

Stephen and I need help this summer at our holiday home 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. Our five star reviews were on the Wwoofing website but we had to move to HelpX because we are not an organic farm.
This summer our daughter is getting married at Awaroa in March. So I'd love a special couple of people to come to help with gardening, cleaning, decorating and wedding stuff any time from March 10th to March 22. Exciting, hard work but lots of fun.
Our accommodation is basic but comfortable and we have hot showers and flush toilets.

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 would like help in the garden and some spring cleaning, housekeeping, laundry, cleaning, some food preparation, gardening etc is all needed during these coming weeks, but we want to culturally exchange and to understand more about China and current Chinese thinking from young people.

There is good wifi in your bunkroom as we prefer you dont use screens in the house. Shared family bathroom inside. We have coeliac children but offer you gluten breakfast / toast/ oats. All cooking is done my me. Please bring your own and any other snacks, chocolate or sweets. We offer three good meals per day and expect 4.5 hours of work.

(Please note I am booked up through till March 20th)

A beautiful large lush bush property nestled in the foothills of Kahurangi National Park. Situated next to a 4 day hiking/bike trail just 15 min out of town. I live off the grid, close to the land using sustainable practices. Looking to create a beautiful peaceful place where people can connect more deeply with nature, a place where people can drop out from the fast paced life and be more present with themselves and each other. Have many projects on the go depending on peoples skills and passions which involve bush craft and simple building skills. And there is always plenty to do in my permaculture garden :)

I live a simple alternative lifestyle..growing food, meditating and doing yoga.

If you would like to stay in a peaceful place and experience life in the bush and if you enjoy helping out and creating then please contact me...

Cheers
Djura :)

Enthusiasm abounds in sunny Takaka, where the microclimate is friendly to the growing garden!
We find a deepening sense of community and mutually beneficial support in beloved Golden Bay. Most of our helpers find this a special place and enjoy a longer time here with our practical life-styling and ever-evolving model for harmonious shared living for a beneficial future.

Sunshine, the main host, is a near-retirement nurse who has plenty of co-operative projects under way and needs your help to bring them to fruition! This includes the huge project at the community gardens as well as her own garden and housekeeping.

In terms of the helpers that thrive in this environment: We favour the enthusiastically competent and people who take the initiative with our collaborative projects.

This household often times also has a sprinkling of creative young children
visiting.
