SEEKING help from 18/3/19 to help in the garden with some landscaping & general maintenance and/or with experience with carpentry skills as I am looking to get a bed and cupboards made for my van.

Rural peaceful setting against limestone rock hillside. Organically grown gardens with fruit, nut trees & vegetables. I am a 90% organic, vegetarian, gluten & dairy free clean living woman in her 40's and I live here with my cat. It is a beautiful sanctuary and is at times hosting guests who come for a retreat, bed & breakfast or holiday rentals. Looking for capable, independent & spiritual/clean living individuals who are interested in learning about sustainability, eco living and how best to live in tune with nature to help me with general garden maintenance, landscaping projects, firewood chopping, basic carpentry, cleaning. Would prefer 2-3 hours per day for a bed in own room in my house and use of internet and basic facilities or 4-5 hours per day for food and accommodation. Ple... more inside

Hiya! Welcome to Golden Bay...great choice to come here, it's awesome! So there's me Toni, Black Cat Sawyer, the busy bees and the 17 Happy Hens plus Lucy the Rooster sharing this divine patch of paradise in Tukurua near the beach at the top of the South Island. AND we're just up the road from the famous Mussel Inn for craft beers and groovin tunes :) As idyllic as that is...and it is, there's always heaps of jobs around the garden: weeding, vege gardening, fruit & nut tree care, weeding, pruning, harvesting, preserving, clearing overgrowth, weeding, painting, more weeding, chopping wood, building, chainsaw, hole digging, cleaning etc. I ask for 4 hours of fair work a day in return for 3 delicious, healthful meals and very comfortable accommodation and inclusion into Golden Bay life. I can give you options for your stay and you can decide which task you prefer to work on. Join me and the critters for 3 days and if we get along brilliantly then your stay may be able to extend after t... more inside

we are both 63 and pretty boring, leading a quiet life.
the property was brought in the late 70s.
there are several sheds and a self contained house truck.
we are on the edge of a large estuary where we kayak and catch fish.
this is a remote location the nearest shop is half an hour away.
we have fast but limited internet, only 120GB a month.
we eat very simply, a lot of food comes from the property.
i hate cooking so you will be expected to help with the cooking and dishes
it would suit people with a car best as it is an interesting area to drive around.
we have kayaks and bikes
we have not had many people lately ,the weather has been terrible
the stuff to do is mostly manual peasent labour
but experience in web page scripting would be useful.
young people may find it very dull here

Kia ora, I am offering accommodation in exchange for light gardening eg lawn mowing and weeding. Because my house does not have a spare bedroom we would set up my large tent in the garden with mattresses to sleep on, and provide access to the in house kitchen and bathroom. I live in a lovely little house walking distance to Takaka township and Takaka river. It's also an ideal spot to hitch a ride north out to Collingwood and beyond. This would best suit someone or a couple wanting a place to base themselves in exchange for 2 hours work a day and then be able to head out and enjoy the day. At home it's myself and my 2 children and sometimes there isn't enough time to keep up with the garden, so your help would be greatly appreciated. I love eating healthy, tasty food and it would be lovely to share some meals and get to know each other if you like, though if you'd prefer to be out and about exploring that's fine by me. A relaxed, friendly exchange is what I'm looking for. I look forw... more inside

We are a couple living in the Pu Pu Valley which is 7kms from Takaka township. We are currently building our earth home, part of which is finished and we are currently living in. We have organic vegetable gardens and fruit trees and the rest of our property is regenerating native forest. If you enjoy peacefulness and tranquility our place is very quiet, with much bird song!

We are needing help with earth wall and floor tile building. This is Physical work. there will also be help in our gardens clearing prickles, weeding & general tidying up. We have guests on air bnb during the summer so cleaning is likely during summer.

This is a 25 acre block of regenerating native forest, within walking distance to the beach, in Golden Bay, 11km from Takaka. We enjoy an abundant bird life & sea views. We work hard to respect & protect the forest & wild life. We cultivate a small part of this land for vegetables & young fruit trees with the application of 'food forest' & permaculture principles. Our eco-home is self sufficient in energy & water & we explore healthy ways to live simply.

General Information
We prefer to welcome couples or two friends, for a minimum of one week, if we get on well. We believe that a longer working relationship is of most value for all, so, when appropriate, we may also welcome a longer term stay. We work hard & seek independent, committed and willing helpers with a healthy, respectful & positive outlook on work, life & relationships

We offer simple healthy food & basic accommodation in a small self contained hut, in exchange for daily land maintenance or handy person work. Gar... more inside
