    Description

    Grant and Dido
    We have an Avocado Orchard and a holiday cottage, both in magical positions looking out over the Pacific ocean near Opotiki in the spectacular Eastern Bay of Plenty. We often need help with a variety of projects mostly involving physical help on the orchard.

    Help

    We have an Avocado Orchard and several house projects that we are setting up as holiday homes. We often need help around the orchard a variety of physical jobs, weeding, mulching etc. Physical work in beautiful surroundings and usually with plenty of Avos to eat. We are also always keen to host anyone with any practical skills such as building, landscaping, painting decorating or carpentry. Both of us struggle with technology so we can always do with help with our gadgets.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are near the beach and enjoy getting out for a swim. Grant knows the bush here well and we get out tramping and camping in the beautiful local bush or down the river in our canoes. Grant enjoys any one who can give him a run for his money at chess. We usually have the badminton and the Slack line up. We enjoy a pretty healthy lifestyle getting out for a run, having a fire on the beach.
