The 9 baby Paradise ducklings and mum and Dad are all doing fine. They're enjoying themselves on the pond. And the lambs are all playing along the fence. Jumping, dancing and playing chasing. I love Spring!

Hi, we are a couple who enjoy meeting people from other walks of life. We live on a lifestyle block about 38 kms north of Christchurch and need some carpentry work and help with some work around the garden and other maintenance on our 10 acre lifestyle block. If you are okay or good with a chainsaw there are some trees that need to be cut down. We enjoy hearing about people's cultures and their life experiences. We are non-smokers and this is definitely a non-smoking home and environment.

We have several cats, all rescued, and all who understand English, Truly!!! A rascal of a dog, and 4 sweet alpacas which are pets. We share some of our land with our daughter, who lives next door, as she has several cattle to run. We do eat some of these cattle beasts.

We are a fai... more inside

There is plenty to do in the area including fishing on many of the nearby high country lakes (1.6km spectacular walk to Lake Sarah) day walks/ tramping in Arthurs Pass National Park and Craigieburn forest Park, skiing on one of the 5 local ski fields, four wheel driving, Scree jumping (down Sugar Loaf). A short drive to Cave stream scenic reserve (one of the south Islands best free activities) and Castle Hill natural rock climbing park (where scenes from Lord of the Rings and Narnia were filmed). Other nearby facilities are The Bealey Hotel (10mins) and Arthurs Pass 20mins. In exchange I would like four hours work per day. Cass can be reached by ... more inside

We are a newly married couple and have moved to the family farm in Clarence, which we will start managing/stocking in Jan 2021. I am both English and NZer, my wife is from the UK, and we recently spent a year living in Madrid, Spain, where Jane taught at a primary school and I taught English. We tried to get from the UK to NZ with little flying as possible and managed to get to Japan via the Trans-Siberian Railway, before taking the final leg of the journey by air to Auckland.

We are looking to start a sustainable lifestyle where we can produce everything from our farm. We currently have orchards full of different fruit and nut trees as well as land to expand and try new ventures. One of our first volunteers experimented with the walnuts and created walnut milk, which is something we hope to sell to local cafes next year to make use of our 60 walnut trees. Previous volunteers have built a beautiful vegetable garden in which we are trialing our horticulture skills, as neither of u... more inside
