    Kia ora! Nau mai Haere mai!
    Let me introduce us first: We, that is my Kiwi partner Jordan, my 5 month old daughter Aylah, our two awesome cats Nero and Nala, our super tame chickens Dideldum, dideldei, Alice and white rabbit and myself, Anna.
    We have recently bought our first whare (home) and are currently trying to establish an edible garden with lots of fruit/nut trees and vegetable beds.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have previously travelled as helpers ourself and stayed and learned from locals. In exchange for 4 hours of work a day you can stay at our home and share our kai (food) with us.
    We live in a newly renovated house in a quiet suburb in Christchurch close to the adventure park, the river and awesome walking tracks. Our home is around 3km away from the city centre and we have StandUp Paddle boards you could use if you choose to:)

    We are looking at people who would like to stay at least 3 days and a max of a week.
    Let me know if you have any questions:)
