I am taking on helpers all year.
The helpers are asked to help four hours for every night they are staying here. Some of the helpers will have the opportunity to come with me on Saturdays to the markets and help me sell local produce and for this they will get a day off during the week.

I live on a 4ha orchard on which I am growing plums, strawberries, garlic, feijoas and also vegetables for the local market. So The helpers are assisting mainly with weeding, picking and pruning.

The work is mainly outside, sometimes it`s wet and it is important that you can bring wet weather gear. I will provide gumboots and gloves if needed. The work is in general quiet easy but can also be physical, so I need people that don`t mind getting their hands dirty. I am quiet happy to put your washing through the whashing machine with no charge.

Vegetarians are welcome here but sorry no vegans. I will supply you with all basic things you need for your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also l... more inside

We are ceramic artists who live on our 1 hectare property about 20km inland from the beautiful Doubtless Bay area. We run our pottery business from home and look after our organic gardens, small orchard and numerous chickens.

We have traveled widely ourselves and hosted travelers for over 10 years with another organisation, so are interested in HelpX for both the cultural exchanges and to be able to share our lifestyle with others while getting some help around the property.

We are looking for enthusiastic helpers for help with things around the property such as gardening, wood collecting, cleaning, painting, general maintenance and other tasks depending on the season.Maybe even pottery sometimes.
In exchange for 4 hours work a day, 5 days a week we will provide you with all meals, but ask that you join in with the preparation, and accommodation in the funky little cabin with it's own veranda.

Every Guest so far has been nothing short of lovely. It is a lot of fun.....
We are situated on the edge of the most historic area of NZ (cradle of the nation). Minutes away from a beautiful walk to Rainbow water falls and a few more minutes to town. Beaches etc. are within half an hours drive.
If you enjoy yoga then we go to weekly classes. We are also involved in an organic community gardens so we eat a lot of vegies. It is best you have your own transport and contribute to the cooking of meals. So you need to be able to whip up a tasty dish.

There are lots of birds and rabbits(all accepted and welcome) two beautiful white swans and a goose called Eric.
