Area: SardiniaI am a dutchman and I have been living in Sardinia for over 10 years on a small olive farm. The olive farm is situated in a beautiful cultivated valley surrounded by mountains, close to the centre eastcoast. And 6km out of town. I'm a tourist and hiking guide on Sardinia and in the tourist season (mai - october) I have little time for the farm, so help is welcome. Also in the olive - picking -season (november) and throughout the whole winter there are plenty of things to do around the house and terrain so help is welcome. Besides picking olives we try to cultivate a vegetable garden, we have a lot of different fruit trees like figs and peaches that we use for making jam. One of the projects i need some help with is the startup of growing aromatic herbs, like rosemary. November to april is a beautiful time of year here as days are crisp in the morning and can warm up to between 12 and 18 around lunchtime, the views in this time of year are crystal clear. In winter there is always enough to do outside, so no lack of fresh air.
Area: AucklandPlease note: we have helpers coming for almost all of March, April, and May, so I'm sorry we aren't looking for any more helpers over these months at the moment! We'll update this as it changes! Kia ora, We have a house in an Auckland suburb (about 15mins from the city) that backs onto a tributary of the Whau river, which is an important natural and historic resource in Auckland - it was a very important river for early Maori here. We are slowly restoring our small part of this, and we'd be very happy to host people who would like to help out with this work, primarily by removing invasive pest plants. You don't need any specialist knowledge, just a willingness to get stuck in. We're a couple who freelance in the arts and media, and have done a bit of travelling, so always enjoying hosting people from all over the place. We know the city well so happy to show you around when we can, or at least give you tips!
