****ARE YOU COMING TO CHRISTCHURCH?*****
Hi there. I need a motivated, fun and easy-going couple. We'll be gardening, doing housework and getting ready for spring in the garden: composting, mulching, weeding and planting etc.
A beautiful, beautiful organic garden, fresh veges, world renowned salads and a beautiful place as a base to explore ChCh as part of the exchange!!! Please read through my listing and email me if you're interested. Thanks
I am a 60 year old woman and I have a little farmyard paradise in the middle of the city of Christchurch, with large organic vegetable gardens, and fruit and a large walnut tree. Most people say it's like being in the country.
I'm 10 minutes drive/scooter or 30 minutes walk from the inner city of Christchurch, 10-15 minutes drive from the beach and 10 minutes from The Tannery- a great place for live music with good beer and pizza. My two adult kids are in ChCh and are regular visitors, so you'll probably meet them while you're here. I have a 10 year old dog called Pete who I rehomed in March 2022; he's a lovely boy, a bit wary and shy sometimes, but then very friendly. My daughter's 2 dogs Albi and Remus are also regular visitors.
I like to feed our helpers well. I'm mostly vegetarian (occasionally I eat fish), and I don't like to cook meat in the house, so you'll need to be OK with vegetarian food too. I encourage you to cook and to share your specialty (vegetarian) dishes with us. You'll share food preparation and clean up as part of living together, outside of your tasks. You have your own lovely room with a comfy bed.
I usually ask my volunteers to work 5 hours a day for 5 days with 2 days off.
I enjoy life and like movies, music, theater, spinning and knitting, walking and reading. You are welcome to join me/us in social activities- there's lots going on in ChCh.
Please no users. I have you here because I need the help with the work- be prepared to pitch in and to help out. Our family have hosted people since 2004 and I've been a helper overseas, so know what makes a good helper experience! See the feedback.
Non smokers and no drug use please. Good conversational English is required.
PLEASE EMAIL ME re a possible stay rather than phone-call or texting. I will answer all emails, even if I can't have you. I don't take on people who call or text, as they usually haven't read this far!
If you need a lift to our house, I will pick you up from the Central Bus Exchange, between Lichfield/Tuam sts, Central city.
PLEASE MAKE CONTACT ONCE YOUR PLANS TO BE IN CHRISTCHURCH ARE CERTAIN, AND BE WILLING TO COMMIT TO HAVING TIME HERE.
We offer hosting because we have work to complete and we need the help. When people let us down at the last minute it is hugely inconvenient for us.
I will commit to having you here, buy extra food and will turn away others who request time with us so that you can be here. Please respect this by turning up, and on the day we arranged.

We have traveled a lot; both within NZ and around the world. We know places to go in ChCh and in NZ with which we can help you.
We have a big garden here and live close to the earth and sea, but within the city.
Duties vary according to the time of the year and may include gardening, weeding, cleaning out the chicken house, stacking wood, trimming and pruning shrubs and trees, picking and preserving fruit and vegetables, painting and maintenance/repairs for the house, renovation projects and housework.
We have a lovely room very close to the house, snuggled within the garden. Your own bathroom (not an ensuite).
we're happy to help you with travel suggestions. Our family have all traveled extensively- both within NZ and overseas
