    Beschreibung

    — Looking for help 26 March - 9 April. Plan to take 2 weeks off work to focus on home — I will be living in a tent and showering in the sea/river during this time. So volunteers need to be comfortable with this lifestyle if they decide to come.

    I descend from tribes in the Bay of Plenty region from the ancestral canoes - Nukutere, Mataatua & Te Arawa. I work in Conservation and bought a property in late 2017 with 14ha of protected native bush (forest). Unfortunately my work schedule is very unpredictable and I am away most of the time working around Aotearoa/NZ ecology surveying. When I am home I try get as much done as possible.

    My vision is to live a simple, self-sufficient life connected to land and sea. Creating a safe space where people can be high on nature.

    We are looking for energetic, self motivated, environmentally conscious people who have skills and experience to help with these current projects:
    - earth wall building for garden edging
    - deck building
    - animal pest control (possums, rats, musterlids, cats, mice)
    - potting up native seedlings
    - roof prep/painting
    - fencing

    I can offer volunteers Māori culture, NZ flora & fauna info, NZ music, a peaceful place to be away from the stresses of travel & the city.

    I strive to live a waste free life, so if you bring any plastic products (or any other waste) with you, I kindly ask that you take it with you when you leave. You can leave biodegradable waste.

    Also prefer people who don't rely on substances like drugs or alcohol

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    I live in a small 2 room self-contained cabin. The cabin is pretty cold in winter and hot in summer. We live on rainwater so guests must be conscious of water consumption. The other dwelling on the property is occupied by a couple (sister & partner) with their 7-year-old son (who has autism).
    You will get a bed in a private room. Shared kitchen & bathroom. Compost toilet. Hot shower. Wifi. Breakfast & dinner provided. Share the cooking and clean up. I ask that volunteers organise their own lunch as its not always guaranteed I will be around in the middle of the day.
