Welcome to our House.
Our business is a family run country garden cafe, judged New Zealand's best cafe 2013. We have built all the eco buildings on site ourselves over the last 28 years and our business has a strong ecological foundation. We also have accommodation in a Giant Boot.
We require help in our organic gardens and other projects, including art and natural building.
We are a hard working and fun loving couple and are looking for the same ethic in our volunteers.
We have separate sleepout accommodation for volunteers with shared camp style facilities i.e you have to go to a seperate building for shower and toilet. You will be expected to share cooking of evening meals together.
Close to beaches and on route to the Abel Tasman National Park.
Own transport a definite advantage as there is no bus service.
We will reply to all emails within 2 days and expect the same so we can efficiently manage volunteers, thanks.
