  • Description

    Description

    Couple or 2 friends together, energetic, needed for garden work, firewood, work in our native trees reserve,housecleaning,feed chickens and dogs, possibly help with painting a cottage, some housecleaning and general tidying up around the property. If you have real carpentry skills and experience, we would love to have you, there are many projects going here! Good English speakers preferred. Stay 2-3 weeks.
    You will stay one of our beautiful guest cottages and eat great food with us. Free unlimited internet, tv etc in your cottage. We have great views of Mt Hutt and Alps. We are 45 mins from Christchurch. No smokers and no special diets (no vegetarians, GF or any food fads) please. We need people who will really engage and tune in with what we are doing here, rather than be here on a 'casual holiday' or using us as cheap way of living while working on your own business online giving priority to that instead of what we do here! If you are squeamish or 'delicate' this is not the place for you, we are in the country and we work hard.
    Please emails us!
