  • Description


    Well traveled, open minded single woman on 16 hectares of land mostly in native bush. I am a medical herbalist and owned a large organic health food store,passionate about the food we eat and our environment. This is a permaculture property close to Sandy Bay along the Tutukaka coast Northland New Zealand.
    My home is octagonal with magic coastal views over the Poor night Island and Sandy Bay, private nestled around bush. Delicious meals are included for a fair exchange. We are easy going open minded and prefer Organic fresh food... Safe travels... Cheers Shushila

    We have recently completed a eco-cottage, eating area and bamboo shower. We have created an earth floor for this area that needs a little mending.... A helping hand and any wisdom would be wonderful, We have created a beautiful bamboo Shower, paving now complete along with bamboo privacy screen and wind break...

    Otherwise there is always something to play with....gardening, transplanting natives, house care, fence tightening, cutting or chipping fire wood, maybe you can use a chain saw or a weed eater.... be a huge help, our fire wood is down, just need more cut and split.... gorse maintenance (not a lot) General handy persons for home projects, like chicken pen and goat house...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is plenty to do and see around this beautiful coast voted by Jacques Cousteau as one of the 3 most beautiful coastlines/ocean area in the world. If you do not have a vehicle we spend many afternoon walking, swimming, the bush is lush and beautiful. When the weather is wet there is alway movies and music and inside chores.
