Our family lives on a lifestyle property in beautiful Pleasant Valley (just 10kms mountain side of Geraldine). Keith and I have homeschooled our 4 children, with just the younger two boys still at home - aged 17 and 18.

Our property sits in the view of the Four Peaks Mountains, and has trees, creeks, and a spring-fed, home-made swimming pool. We graze sheep on our 12 acre property. We have two home orchards, raspberries as well as a large veggie garden.

We eat largely non- processed wholefoods homecooked meals, fresh veges and fruit. We make our own yoghurt from raw milk and make our own bread.

We also have our own natural swimming pool and camping ground. So you would be welcome to swim or if you like tenting - we have tents or a bus in the camping ground.

Would love some SPRING help: Great time of yer to be outside if you would be happy to help me with work in the garden work, weedeating, chopping wood and odd jobs. Let me know if you have any particular skills. ... more inside

We are a Christian homeschooling family, who run a shop in the small town of Twizel in the beautiful Mackenzie Country.

Life is very full with running the household, land & business, plus we are quite involved in our community.
and going, as well as the family - we have more at home in weekends and holidays than during the termtime week.

We have room for one or two Helpxers. You will have your own room in the house. We have broadband internet & WiFi.

We have an adorable labrador dog, two chickens & a budgie. We have a small vege garden and enjoy many herbs and flowers in pots and baskets :-)

We need someone who loves cooking and would enjoy making the evening meal for us (and definitely not a vegetarian please!) and can do light household duties to help us run the home and keep it tidy (something we really struggle with currently - we need more time!) and clean. Plenty of opportunities to practise English! And we love European boardgames.

This is an amazing area of t... more inside

hey!

we would like two people to join us early December for a week or two. Mainly after some cleaning/painting as the family is coming for Xmas and we've been doing renovations!

my partner and I (31, 27) are two kiwis living in Timaru and we'd love you to join us in our quest for sustainability and fun.

Two helpxrs are the best set up for us and you'd have the double bed in our spare room and you'd help us with whatever project we're working on - at the moment we need a couple of helpers . Little odd jobs.

We expect around hours of work per day and for you to do the dishes at night when we cook. We will provide all your food, wifi and clothes washing if needed. On the weekend for at least one meal you can cook dinner from your country as work time and we'll do the dishes instead :)

You will get your own room with a queen sized bed.

we also have a wee bunny with lop ears ^.^

we live on state highway 1 and love learning about new people and places. send a messag... more inside
