We are a family with 2 children (11 & 13 years old) who grow food organically. I am a resident of New Zealand, originally from Holland. My husband is Indian and grew up in the UK. Our daughters are both kiwis. We are looking for help with gardening and property maintenance. We live close to Takaka town ship and just down the road from Rototai beach. Golden Bay is truly paradise and has lots of beautiful places to explore!

I am a theatre director and drama teacher and have many connections in our creative and self sustainable Golden Bay Community. I am also part of the management team of Luminate Festival. We are all big into sports and the outdoors.

I love cooking for my family and others, especially Indian, Asian cuisine using organic and wholesome ingredients. We are a vegan family and will not provide any animal products for you.

We are looking for energetic people with an outstanding work ethic and who enjoy being outdoors and like hard physical work. We will work with ... more inside

Enthusiasm abounds in sunny Takaka, where the micro-climate is friendly to the growing garden!
We find a deepening sense of community and mutually beneficial support in beloved Golden Bay. Most of our helpers find this a special place and enjoy a longer time here with our practical life-styling and ever-evolving model for harmoniously shared living for a beneficial future.

Sunshine, the main host, is a near-retirement nurse who has plenty of co-operative projects underway and needs your help to bring them to fruition! This includes the ongoing project at the community gardens as well as her own garden and adventures in cooperative living.

In terms of the helpers that thrive in this environment: We favour the enthusiastically competent and people who take the initiative with our collaborative projects.

This household often times also has a sprinkling of creative young children visiting.

We offer a shampoo bar and ask you to consider suspending your plastic bottle use w... more inside

Hi, I`m Rich, by name anyway! I live 12km South from Takaka, on the side of the valley, with beautiful mountain and valley views, and a walk to a swimming hole at the river below. I have a 14 yr old boy, a dog and a cat. Since 2016 I am now running the whole property on my own, which is quite daunting, and having my boy about half the time. This means I really need independently capable guests! Guests share daily household life, cooking cleaning etc. Accommodation is in your own beautiful 5m diameter yurt. I have a tipi and yurt making business on the land, check out the website www.yurts.co.nz, though this has it`s own workers so help is not needed there. I have to work at the business several days each week, so guests also have to be happy working alone sometimes ... I am not growing much veggies these days, but lots of fruit and timber trees. Outside physical work is varied land maintenance with creative building projects. I have need for someone experienced on a scrubcutting / ... more inside

We are a semi retired couple living on the forest margin, growing vegetables and basket willow. We invite travellers to share our little slice of paradise in exchange for help maintaining our garden and basket willow plantation. We eat mostly organic food and while we eat some meat we can accommodate vegetarians. The famous Mussel Inn is just down the road and we are 5 mins drive from the beach.
Work includes weeding and maintenance of our willow plantation and domestic gardening and property maintenance. Our preference is usually short stays with the option of extending. In return we offer comfortable caravan accommodation, a hot shower and good food. As we are both away from the property sometimes we like our helpers to be capable of working unsupervised.
It is easier if our helpers have a vehicle or are willing to hitch hike as there is no public transport.
Our usual arrangement is 4 hours work for food and accommodation. We provide food for breakfast and lunch so you c... more inside

Hello traveller

We are a family, Ansgar (German) and Nina (Kiwi) with four kids aged 9,8,7 and 1

We are looking for one person or a couple from February 20 to come stay with us at our property. We live in 2 tiny houses that we built ourselves. We welcome all kinds of people from around the world and look forward to sharing cultures

Help will be with jobs such as cleaning, general gardening, digging and gorse removal. We are a big family and between us speak English, German and Spanish. As we have a few kids we prefer people who enjoy keeping to themselves a bit and like being independent, but of course we love making new friends.

You will also need to be self-motivated because we both work throughout the week so won't be able to work with you or supervise (unless it's the weekend - maybe!) If you have any trades or services to offer that's a bonus!

Situated in Tukurua, 15km from Takaka and 7km from Collingwood, the private caravan for accommodation is located next ... more inside

Hi There!

Our place is located in a unique location next to the Abel Tasman National park in Golden Bay, surrounded by total genuine wilderness with beautiful views over Golden Bay and beyond.

We can offer an experience in our little earth building cafe pizzeria over summer starting mid-december ( Work visa & IRD number ESSENTIAL for this).
We prefer a period of 10 days-2 weeks stay, but we can be flexible.

Out of summer, other jobs than the café are mostly helping us with gardening projects, establishing trees, gardens, sometimes building projects or earth building maintenance with some other odd jobs around.

We are a multi cultural couple (Carole is a French girl of 33 and Crian is a Kiwi guy of 43) passionate about alternative lifestyles and who try to be as self sufficient as possible while staying in close contact with the wilderness surrounding us. We live with a dog, a cat, and have chooks & gentle geese running free on the property.
We live in an earth house bu... more inside

Let's give you an upfront and straightforward description of what we are looking for to ensure it works both ways.

When the sun is out activities on the farm are adding up. We need a helping hand with tasks like: clearing paddocks/sheds, cutting barbery bushes, weeding, chopping firewood, vege garden care etc. You assist 4.5 hours a day in exchange for good conversation, breakfast, lunch, dinner and accommodation.

Two dogs as well as all sorts of livestock roam our property: Alpaca's, Cattle, Chicken, Turkeys, Pig(let)s, Ducks, Sheep and Bees.

We are not a holiday park. If you are put off by some form of physical activity we might not be the right place for you.

NO need to contact if you do not have your own way of transport (car). We are not in the position to accompany you visiting the world outside our gates The closest town is Takaka, a ten minute drive by car. We are environmental conscious and appreciate you to be the same. There is a non-smoking policy for ho... more inside
