Hello, we are a family of 3, this is Hamish and myself Beatrice and our son Matai (9yrs). We live in Takaka Rototai. 2 min. to Town & 10 min. to the next Beach (cruisy bicyle ride...). We live in a 3 bedroom house with an organic garden. We just moved and would love to have some help gardening, cooking, maybe some joinery work (kitchen) and especially help with my website/computer (Mac) etc. We expect 4 hrs. work, but we are relative flexible with schedules.
We can take you on family trips, to show you the Bay (at least some of it...) if you wish.

We love nature, good books & movies, music & a good laugh & yummy food!...
We also have a cat called Moana which is part of our family.

We like to have people between 3 - 7 days ( sometimes longer...).

Looking for one or two people now (Sep 2017) to help get the garden sorted. Our overgrown vege patch needs weeding, seedlings planted and mulched. Must be able to work with minimal instruction and would be great if you had gardening experience!

Hi, we are a young family living on a gorgeous property in Tukurua. Close to the Mussel Inn, Collingwood, and about 15 minutes from Takaka. We have 3 young kids so could really appreciate some help at this busy time!

We are looking for mature people, own transport is good, non smokers, and respectful and tidy is a must!

Jobs we need help with include gardening, mowing (ride on), feeding chickens, weeding, cleaning, odd jobs and possibly watching the kids for a bit. (I will usually still be here but will give me a chance to get out into the garden!)

We have a housebus for you to stay in, as well as a separate bathroom.

At this stage I think we would prefer for you to make your own meals, although this can be negotiated. We are ... more inside

We are a busy family of 4 living on a one hectare property in rural Takaka. There is Simon (38), Mirka (36), Zoe (11) and Paige (9). Simon manages a dairy farm about 50 minutes drive from here and Mirka works full time as an environmental consultant, while Zoe and Paige attend the local school.
We have only just recently moved away from the farm that Simon manages to this property, which was abandoned for about 4 years prior to us moving in. Whilst we have nearly finished renovating the house, we do really need help getting the one hectare of garden and trees under control.
As both of us work full time our helpers would be left unsupervised for parts of the day.
Ideally we are looking for a lovey couple that loves outdoor work such as scrub cutting, also likes children and general housework.
We have a spare bedroom with separet access from the house. It has a comfortable double bed and a bathroom vanity(that will yet have to be installed). You would share the toilet and bathro... more inside

We live in paradise right at the northern end of the Abel Tasman NP in Tui Community, founded in 1984. Our household includes Colin (originally from the UK), Inna (born in Germany) and Kiva (7yrs born in NZ) and we enjoy organic gardening, permaculture, yoga, natural building, play, clowning, vegetarian food, conscious communication and community life. Staying with us, you will be in good company, surrounded by gorgeous nature, 5min walk from the beach, and have an option of sampling living in intentional community, while also having plenty of time to enjoy your own company in a retreat-type, peaceful setting. As we have full lives we value sharing with you, but also require you to enjoy your own company.

There is always lots to do in and around the house, incl gardening, cleaning, child care and helping out around the wider community.
We welcome your help: An easy going, self-motivated attitude and practical, hands-on skills are essential, as you will often be asked to work in... more inside

Currently we are looking for folk who have building or laboring experience to help with the construction of our natural house. At the moment its mainly wood work and hand tools.

We are biking/walking distance to the beach and the Mussel Inn, where there is regular live music. Takaka is about 11 kms away, tho someone on the property is usually going fairly regularly. There is plenty of walking and access to the bigger national parks.

We live in a very small house with our young son, for helpers there's an older caravan. Food will be provided, tho meal times might be anywhere on the property! we are fairly busy at the moment with building and raising our young son so would suit a happily independent person/people/couple. We share the land with extended family and all sorts of things could be going on, gardening, black smithing, cider pressing, aikido, trips to the beach, trying to have fun and not get stressed out...We are all pretty laid back, easy going, and respectful.

We are located in Golden Bay on a large piece of organically farmed land in Takaka town ship. People have their private allotments here and the Community Organic Gardens also grow on their own plots to provide food for the vege/fruit stall at the gardens and to feed the wwoofers/helpers and the food bank at the community workers. The buildings on site are rented out to community groups for meetings/workshops/classes. Events are run here as well. In summer there is a cafe on site. Takaka is a colourful small town in beautiful Golden Bay with a diverse community and there is a lot happening (mostly in summer).

We are looking for helpers (minimum 1 week) but also looking for long term helper(s) who are keen to manage the other helpers.
