WE WOULD LIKE A STRONG HELPER, FOR 4 TO 7 DAYS, ANYTIME IN THE FOLLOWING MONTHS TO MOW LAWNS & PLANT TREES.
Oct _ _ _ _? Nov, Aaron Fauteau. Dec _ _ _ _?

We can offer about one week of work and adventure every month. Work for 20 hours or so and spend the rest of your time going off exploring Middle Earth.

Our home is close to the Ohakune Mountain Road that goes up Mount Ruapehu to hiking tracks, mountain bike tracks, LOTR filming sites, and to Turoa ski field. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is about one hour from here. You can have fun dressing up in my LOTR costumes here.

My wife is a nurse, and I am retired. My job is now gardening. As I have got older I appreciate help with digging, weeding, planting and trimming shrubs, lawn-mowing, etc. I'm also making LOTR costumes: you can also help with those if you like.

I enjoy hiking around the slopes of Mt Ruapehu. I'm 78 now and can't walk as far as I used to but I can guide you to some fascinating places.

I have... more inside

I am looking for someone to help with Arab horses It will involve working with young ones to riding green horses to helping exercising the competition horses. You donít need to muck out as the horses arenít stabled. You may also be asked to house sit if we are away . When possible we would take you to the competition. You may also be asked to help clean our Airbnb and cook a meal but most the work involves horses. You will have your own room in the family home and eat meals with us our family consist of myself and my husband and an international German student. We would love to have someone that would like to stay for at least a couple of weeks as it takes time to show you how everything works. But would consider shorter time person

Hi,
We are a family of 5 with 3 young children of 1,3 and 5.
I am from France and Nick is a kiwi working on a farm, where we also live.
We need help starting now with looking after kids, cleaning, cooking, gardening, feeding pigs, running dogs, training and riding 2 horses and soon milking 2 cows and make butter/cheese..
There is no cellphone coverage, and we are 30 min from Ohakune and 25 min from Raetihi, so anyone that doesn't like isolation and children will not be happy here!
Accomodation is a room in the house and food isn't vegetarian but is as much as possible from our garden or local.
Looking forward to meet anyone with lots of stories and humour and who is a happy worker!
