  • Description

    Description

    We're a family of 4 with a daughter (11) and a son (8), who are trying to establish a healthy organic lifestyle property on 10 acres in North Canterbury. We need help year round with our vegetable garden.

    We enjoy meeting people and learning from other cultures, are open-minded, friendly, and non-smokers. We're educating our children at home so we welcome the chance to bring the world to us.

    We are located in North Canterbury, approximately 40 Km from Christchurch, 10 km from the village of Cust, 15 km from Oxford township, and 20 km from Rangiora.
