We live on the Otago Peninsula, but are only 20 minutes away by car or bus to Dunedin. We are a busy family of four, slightly chaotic but easy going, friendly and welcoming. My husband is a very busy man and so I'm looking for somebody to help me in the garden. There is a macrocarpa hedge to prune (it's big), some hedging plants to dig up, general weeding and also wood to chop. For rainy days there is some internal sanding.

You will benefit from the experience of spending time on the Otago Peninsula. We know lots of places off the beaten track and just spending time here will give you a good insight into New Zealand culture here in the South.
We are looking for somebody who is practical and does a good job. Garden tasks - a macrocarpa hedge to prune, some hedging plants to dig up, general weeding and also some pallets to chop.
Our house is small, but you will have your own room in our home. You are welcome to eat with us as a family and food will be provided.
There is a lot to do in and around Dunedin which we can show/tell you about. We have unlimited wifi but would prefer it if device usage was limited when the kids are around. We are non-smokers nor party animals/night owls so our place would perhaps suit somebody who prefers a quieter life or is happy to head into town for a night out. We are looking for somebody who is considerate, honest and trustworthy; who can relate to kids and is not high maintenance! The practical skills are important. My benchmark is that you know how to cut a hedge in a straight line!
