Would you like to spend time in rural North Canterbury? We are only 30 mins drive from Christchurch on a 20 acre farm with a few sheep and young cattle and a large organic vegetable garden which we eat from every day. Were about 7 minutes drive to the sea, an hour to Hanmer Springs, 20 minutes from the Waipara Valley vineyard area.
We have bicycles you can borrow to explore locally, and if you like hiking up hills there are a few nice tracks in close driving distance. Our outside hot spa is marvelous on cold evenings during winter, (but now is needing its summer clean out). Accommodation is in a comfortable sleepout and you would use the bathroom in the house and share meals with us. My husband is a builder so we have tools you can borrow if you need to convert your van for living in before touring NZ.

I would like some help in the garden and I'd like help to collect river stones to make a garden edging. I also appreciate help with housework and dishes. If you like to cook I... more inside

We live on a beautiful sheep and beef farm between Greta Valley and Cheviot. We live on the coast at Napenape beach a beautiful beach for photography, walking, surf casting and diving. We are only a few kilometres away from the popular surf/swimming beach called Gore Bay. We are also very close to the Hurunui River which is well known for its trout and salmon fishing as well as kayaking. There are plenty of walking tracks near our farm.

We have a small feijoa orchard and a large vegetable garden. We try hard to live off our land and love to entertain with friends.

We have had over 40 different sets of helpers and really enjoyed making new friends and sharing some of our kiwi culture with them.

We are looking for people to help mainly with gardening, housekeeping and general farm tasks. We love living on a farm and are keen to share our skills with those interested in trying some new things. We are flexible with the hours worked and the jobs done.

Hi,
We are looking for 1,2 or 3 people to come and help us for 7-10 days. It would be a bit of everything: helping around the house, sorting/categorizing, childcare, gardening. We are a couple in their mid 30s with two young children and a Labrador.
Work 4 hours for accommodation in your own bedroom/ensuite which is separate to the main house. Included in the bedroom is a tv with a huge selection of dvds. We are located near Culverden in North Canterbury.
Thanks,
Blaise & Dan

I am looking for one or two people to come and enjoy life with me. Just for one week.
While you are here you will be welcome to participate in our daily life, to learn about how Kiwis live, especially in a home-educating enviroment.
While you are here I may do some gardening, maybe some painting, cutting firewood, cleaning etc. You will be welcome to participate but there is no expectation, or requirement for you to do so - you will be here as our guest.
We have just got ourselves a large property with heaps of apple trees, almond and peach trees, apricot and plum trees, plus lots of gardens.
I love cooking so I can make some great meals for you.
We have a warm, comfortable place for you to stay. It is very private.
We've had people stay while they kit out a van with a bed and cupboards etc, so if this is your plan, we have numerous tools that you are welcome to use.
We offer unlimited Wi-Fi, and unlimited food. You are welcome to cook yourself some food anytime.

120 hectare deer farm in the North Canterbury foothills. Situated approx. 1 hour from Christchurch.

As the cottage is no longer available, accommodation is now offered in the main house -guest wing with double bed, own en suite and private outside sitting area. All meals provided in return for 4 to 5 hours work per day.

We have a working deer farm but at present, the main duties would be around the house - domestic cleaning, some tidying in the garden and whatever else needs doing at the time. We have three very friendly dogs who are happy to go for a walk too.

Mt Thomas is nearby if you are interested in tramping.

We can meet Helpers coming by bus to Rangiora or Woodend.

Length of stay - usually one to two weeks maximum.

We cut all our own firewood and have a large garden, pets and some livestock. The accommodation is very comfortable and clean, separate to the house, with own toilet and shower. We have a pool and fantastic view! We would love to host those keen to be involved in our family life, enjoy a laugh and good tucker. We are not vegetarians.
