Derek and I live in our harbour-Side home, in a semi rural location, on the outskirts of Whangarei, Northland, Derek commutes to work in Whangarei and I work from home. I run an Airbnb in some of our spare rooms.
However, it is our residential home, with large grounds including gardens and native trees, we need help with. We are new to this property and I have a lot of plans to develop an urban farm with poultry, orchards and vegetable gardens. We are also planning some renovations/ decorating we may need help with in the future.
We have two elderly small dogs and a cranky cat. The dogs enjoy getting out from time to time.

We could use help with a number of projects inside and out. Including renovations, landscaping, gardening, processing garden produce and decorating. We also offer house hold chores, inside and out to anybody who is interested. Window cleaning is a particular need.
We have some work in the garden and some painting available at the moment.
I also would like people who are handy with a camera and can help document our wee farm on social media.
