Hi I am Julie and I live in the beautiful area of Tasman which is famous for its apples,wine, forestry and fishing. I live 30 minutes from the nearest city of Nelson and only ten minutes from the township of Motueka from where you can get everything you need. Within 20 minutes from my place you can be lying on the beautiful white sands of Kaiteretere beach, or be tramping through one of the local National Parks. It feels an amazing priviledge to be able to live here. I work 4 days a week as a nurse in Nelson Hospital and spend my time off running my lifestyle block.

Type of help

General Maintenance,
Help in the house,
Animal care


My lifestyle block is 2 acres where I run 3 anglo-nubian milking goats from which I make cheese as a hobby. There is a large vegetable garden that needs tending also general house and property maintenance. There are 2 kunekune pet pigs, a dog, cat and chickens for eggs. I am also establishing an orchard. There is an area of honeysuckle to clear, fence fixing, mowing and gardening. Scrub to clear on the bank, small building jobs (new milking stand, plinth for an outdoor bath, replacing wood on raised gardens) and possibly some painting.

I live in a 2 bedroom cottage. You will be staying in a self contained caravan with power and gas. You will need your own transport as the public transport is very sporadic from here, but there are some good bikes you are welcome to borrow to check out the neighborhood. There is a lovely quiet beach at the end of the road.

What else ...

Non smokers and no drugs, not cool! Work is work and play is play. Experienced workawayers would be preferable.
