We would love some help with the many jobs there are to do around the house and garden. The house is on 1 acre of land and now there is a new 4 hectare block of land we are developing adjacent to it. It is not a farm stay although we do have chickens and bees and plenty of birds! This is a steep property on a beautiful site, with a large house in the sun (mostly). It is 20 minutes walking distance from Akaroa. There are many great walks in the area and we are in the heart of many great hiking tracks.

We appreciate the help with the many jobs there are to do. There is always help needed especially when it comes to weed eating (grass cutting) work and gardening. At the moment we are doing some indoor painting as well.

Hollie works full time and Ad works mostly on the land. We prefer 2 helpers (a couple or 2 handy friends) at once who can work together or people who don't mind working on their own. Also people who are happy to cook for themselves too, as we have irregular eati... more inside

We live in an awesome part of the country on the Banks Peninsula close to Christchurch and Akaroa.

We have a 1 acre spray free garden with fruit trees, vegetable gardens, glass house and tunnel house and need help with tidying up the garden and maintaining the house on the outside and inside .... Work will be gardening, painting, clearing areas and/or cleaning.

We are a family of 4, with 2 boys, 8 and 11 years old. It is great if you like children. We are vegetarians so vegetarians are very welcome.

Your accommodation is very comfortable and separate from our house so private and quiet for you.

We prefer helpers over 25 years, couples and singles are welcome. We look forward to hosting and meeting you soon.

See my facebook page, which has excellent photos and gives a feel for what goes on here. I am a retired journalist and farmer and have 4 huts for romantic retreats, 2 off-grid.

Much of the work for the helpXer is based around the maintenance and cleanliness of the huts. It can also include a trip to the beach to collect seaweed and driftwood or up to the forest for pine cones. Or taking Tye, a border collie, for a walk on one of the many fantastic walking tracks in the area starting right from the door from your hut. We work hard when the weather is good and we stay warm by the fire when the weather is horrid.

There is a double bedroom in the main house with electricity, it's own sun deck and entrance, and close to bathroom and wifi but not close to your host. Wifi access is for checking emails only. Free Wifi is available at the library, a short walk to the village. There is a film room for wet days and the food can be outstanding, can be average and occasionally you are sent... more inside

We are looking for knowledgeable gardeners and enthusiastic weeders - and anyone who has good DIY skills. Our aim this year is to resurrect our veggie patch and start keeping a few chickens, by converting the shed into a hen house. We are a British "City" family (mostly ignorant all things gardening.... but getting much better thanks to our wwoofing friends), with a small friendly B&B in the historic & slightly quirky port town of Lyttelton, so if you fancy a little time "away" from the farm give us a call.... or email!

We have been long term Wwof hosts and really enjoy the company of international travelers we promise to feed you well in return for 4 hours hard work daily

Looking for some help in my garden and a little indoor painting, between 5-13 May...

My home is in Governors Bay which is a small town of 800 people located in a very scenic part of the Banks Peninsula only 20 minutes drive from Christchurch. I have a rather large property on tree-clad section with a small amount of lawn, a vegetable garden garden and great views of the Lyttelton Harbour. I also share my home with my 7 year old dog Chica.

Staying and working here would suit a couple who are independent (i.e. have had some life experience outside of home and school), self-motivated and having a happy, can-do attitude would be most welcomed. Working hours and expectations are fair - about 4 hours a day, or you can also work a full day and take the next off... whatever is mutually convenient. Main tasks are weeding the garden, and also cooking. Although right now after the winter months the house is in need of a good spring clean inside. Having any building, or landscaping skill... more inside

Couple in our 60's, just ourselves now our two sons are making their way in the world. We are flower farmers with a strong conservation interest who have a garden, fruit trees and make our own wine from a small vineyard. Work mainly involves farm tasks like flower picking, firewood gathering and vineyard maintenance. We are specially looking for help in our busy flower picking season from October to December .

Good accommodation and as much good food as you can eat. Amateur cooks welcomed. No experience needed, just people who can get stuck in, do a good day's work and enjoy a few laughs. Some days are longer and can be a bit harder but we try to compensate with some extra time off. Lots of friends made over fourteen years as hosts. Google Akaroa for local info.
