Hilary and I live in a 3 bedroom strawbale house which , with the help of family, friends and HelpX we built over 3 day week-ends for three years. The house is on just over 6 hectares and has sheep, goats, honey bees, native tree plantings, an orchard, soft fruits and nut trees.
We grow and make as much of our own food as possible; bread, cakes, pickles, yoghurt and jams are created in the kitchen, vegetables and fruit come out of the garden and meat comes from our animals.
We are looking for Helpx guests who are interested in and want to be involved in sustainable living, creating their own buildings, permaculture, etc. We are happy to help you with this journey. We would love you to have some skills in digging, weeding, building etc.

The house is 16 km west of Geraldine with views to the mountains [the Four Peaks] and the sea.
South Canterbury is great for walking and biking, with lovely nearby native forests and mountains [check out the DOC web site]. The coast is 40 mi... more inside
