We are a young family of three renovating out 1890's railway workers' cottage. Our daughter Ada is 2 years old and Caroline is working part-time, while Simon works full time. We share our home with four chooks, a hive of bees and Horangi the cat. Our little home is very central to local cafes and restaurants. We are a 10min walk to Hagley park and 25mins into the central city through the park.

The inside and outside of our renovation is complete! With BIG thanks to two amazing HelpXer's Peter and Long! and we are now onto the Sleepout rebuild - we will need your help now!!

To help dis-assemble the old Sleepout, repair our glasshouse (in the photo), relocate our vegetable garden, and other small domestic jobs (e.g. mowing the lawn, cleaning the kitchen). It's a small house, so the Helpx guests will be staying in our newly renovated and warm 2 person caravan in the driveway, so they will have to be comfortable with the possibility of sharing a room with another HelpXer's.

We live about ten minutes from the small town of Cheviot and enjoy a lovely setting in the country, surrounded by farmland. There`s a big garden, and the house is very comfortable, with good wifi too.

There is a general mix of work available but our main focus is to have someone here to look after the place as we are away quite a bit of the time in March. We would love it if you could do some gardening and keep the place clean! Taking the dogs for a short walk most days would be cool.

We live about ten minutes drive from the coast (Gore Bay, a great surfing spot). We`ve got 2 lovely house dogs, 1 retired sheep dog, 2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 kunekune pigs and 3 cats.

Harris Meats is located next door but far enough away to not cause you any grief, unless you have an issue with living in the vicinity of an abattoir.

There`s lots of sporting activities around here, from walking cycling and if you are keen on surfing or fishing, the river and sea are nearby. There are also... more inside

***WE ARE LOOKING FOR HELPERS FOR THE SPECIFIC DATES OF 4TH - 10TH MARCH***
We live in a nearly new 5 bedroom semi-eco house on a 1500m2 property 30mins drive from central Christchurch.

We have more than 20 fruit and nut trees, a greenhouse, several hugel beds, many vegetable growing areas, a bee hive, 8 chickens and 1 cat. We aim to make most of the property productive other than a small lawn and the drive. Check out our Instagram page to see what we do @LighthouseUrbanFoodForest.
We are looking for a couple over 25 years of age to come for for the week (7 nights accommodation) 4th - 10th March to assist with various garden jobs including harvesting, planting, pruning, digging and a bit of weeding.
We offer a comfortable double room, with a private bathroom and free unlimited WiFi. Ou... more inside

**The cottage is available from 1 March 2019**

We have really enjoyed the many HelpX experiences we have had getting to know people from other parts of the world. We are a friendly and relaxed family who love having visitors so please read the reviews below from some who have stayed with us.

We can offer accommodation for 2 hours work per day. So you would cook your own meals. We are happy to be flexible such as combining the hours of work in a day to have days off. Given the distance to Rangiora/Christchurh it would suit someone with a car but happy to discuss as we have had a number of helpers stay without a vehicle.

We are looking for general help around the property such as gardening, maintenance, painting, firewood, cleaning, etc and occasionally looking after the boys. It will suit single or couple or a family, non-smokers.

Our property was previously an orchard but is now a small lifestyle block with main house and a separate 1 bedroom self contained cottage... more inside
