Our property is 20 minutes from the centre of Christchurch. We are a busy working family and run a wholesale rose business from our property. Helpers stay in a warm and private cottage with one double bed, own bathroom and kitchen.

Food for breakfast/lunch is provided which you make in your own cottage, and dinner is shared with the family. We always appreciate a traditional meal (or anything else!) if you like to cook/bake.

Help needed is varied depending on the time of year. You will either be helping us in our rose nursery or general help around the property/house, just wherever we need an extra pair of hands! Our helpers typically help for about 4.5 hours a day, with one day off.
