    Description

    Hi we are a busy wee family! We moved onto 3 acres of land tucked into the bush on the Tutukaka coast Dec 2013 and most of the focus has been transforming a shed/barn into a home, which apart from some gib stopping & paint needed, is almost complete. Alot of work now to be done on the land.

    Our family consists of a Naturopath / medical herbalist and trained yoga teacher , 2 beautiful children 5 and 12, a snuggly but timid cat & a goofy Japanese spitz. Aiming soon to have chickens aswell as alpacas :-D who knows what else???

    An 8 metre diameter Tipi is also yet to be erected on the land, from which Yoga will eventually be taught!

    We are pretty relaxed, like to laugh so workawayers with sense of humors is a must!!!

    Work is required rain or shine, 2.5 hours a days 7 days a week. Then jump in the pool for a quick splash!!

    There is much to be done here from helping with the house work, building a chicken coop, putting up gib to clearing gorse and the fences and maybe minding the children or planting a tree or two.
