  • Description

    Description

    This is a community project to restore wetlands and rivers to help keep our oceans healthy and thriving.
    We live in a small rural community at the top of the Coromandel Peninsula. We grow lots of our own food, build our own homes and share our lives with the native wildlife.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Colville is a breathtakingly beautiful remote part of New Zealand that is off the beaten track. We have stunning beaches, bush walks and accomodation in a solar powered village. We have opportunities to learn about our native species, how restoration works, living with local families and if you are really lucky we might just take you fishing :)

    We are looking for people who are hard working, love the outdoors, being in a team and having fun!
