Small Farm Animal Sanctuary, 50 KM South of Dunedin. There are pigs, horses, sheep, chickens, dogs.
Large original farm house and grounds. Beautiful in summer, cold in winter!
We both work full time and need people to be here for animals through the day. Also we look for the skills we need for current projects. Please mention specific skills you have in request email.
At the moment focus is finishing painting the house and lots of dog walking.
There is something here to suit most people's abilities.
We prefer positive people who appreciate spending time with animals, quiet time in the country but can work well with other volunteers. Plenty of food, time off and entertainment!
Help in the house
Need help with animals, gardens and household chores. Sometimes outdoors projects on the property or renovation inside. Please say if you have some specific practical skills.
Nothing too difficult but need people with initiative, maturity and like being outdoors.
Learn a lot about animal care, basic garden maintenance including vege gardening. Wholesome cooking and baking if interested. I work in Science and Brent works in a Government Dept.
Upstairs double bedroom with shared bathroom. Electric blankets on beds and plenty of bedding and extras in room. Unlimited wifi and Netflix.
I cook all the meals unless you want to help. Plenty of food for big appetites! Plant based meals as this is a Animal Sanctuary, not a farm
Good stop between Dunedin and the Catlins, Te Anau or Queenstown.
Prefer own transport but sometimes possible to collect you off bus at Milton.
Time off here spent enjoying the grounds, walking in surrounding farms and entertainment room.
