  • Description

    Description

    I am a teacher of permaculture, organic horticulture and biodynamics. I'm currently turning a one acre property from a rose garden into a permaculture food forest. I run courses from the property. I am also renovating the house, and becoming more self sufficient with food and firewood. Vegetarians and meat eaters welcome. I don't cater for any other diets such as vegan, dairy free, wheat free, fruitarians etc.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I teach organic horticulture, permaculture and biodynamics and travellers are welcome to attend classes for free when they stay. None of the jobs that need doing need experience as I will be working alongside you and you can learn anything from gardening, to building structures and plastering and landscaping. Preference is given to people who are genuinely interested in gardening/organics/permaculture/ biodynamics - no tyre kickers please.....

    I have a one acre permaculture property in New Plymouth and need help with gardening - mulching, composting, harvesting, pruning etc. Hard landscaping such as wall building, path making and various other structures around the garden. Also need help renovating inside the house - gibbing, painting, woodwork etc. Artwork - designing signs, murals, mosaics, structure painting. I teach in the evenings so you'll be expected to cook with seasonal ingredients at least 2 nights of the week.
