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.

I'll add to this later. But for now the key points are:

I am a single person hoping to work on a number of projects on my place over the next few years. I live off grid. There is no house phone or internet but cell phone coverage is good for one network at the the house so you can bring your own. I have 2 cats.

I am an unusual person, so may not be to everyones taste, please ask questions.

My place is remote, mostly regenerating native bush with some forest.

Projects that I want help with:

1) Housework. My house is a shambles, it needs organising.

2) Garden making. I hope to construct some organic vegetable gardens. So far I have only one small patch that has been dug, and a short stone wall. Digging new garden is hard work, the soil is volcanic and stones need to be removed and added to the stone walls.

3) Firewood. This takes much carrying to get it to the house.

4) Hydro power. I want to build a tiny hydro power generator to provide power in Winter. Water ... more inside

We live on a well established rural property, nestled among native bush, an orchard and walnut trees. Quail feed on the lawn each morning and native wood pigeon & bell birds live in the trees. A stream runs through the center of our property, that is home to the long fin eel and trout during spawning season. Our home is surrounded by farm country where sheep and cattle,donkeys,pigs, ducks, geese and alpacas are common sightings within 1 km.We have 4 chicken and 2 cats.
We grow our own vegetables organically. I make my own bread and love learning from others different recipes.Kim roast his own coffee and makes a cup better than most cafe's.
