Kia ora! Nau mai Haere mai!
We, that is my Kiwi partner Jordan, our 2 year old daughter Aylah and myself, Anna. Together we live with our gorgeous cats Nero and Nala, our rabbit Hiphop, our 4 fish and 6 chickens (Alice, tweedeldum, tweedeldee, white rabbit, hatmaker and grinsekatze) on an 800m section in Huntsbury. Our home is surrounded by walking tracks, the port hills, the adventure park and the river, around 4km from the city Centre.
We are in the process of transforming our home into a self (community) reliant and sustainable home following permaculture principles.
We are really passionate about permaculture, herbal medicine, sustainable living and everything that comes with this.
I’m currently setting up a little community business selling affordable medicinal plants and herbs for the wider community.
We are always looking for people who would like to be part of this journey and would love to hear from you.
Our current projects include:
•prepping annual garden beds for spring planting
-setting up an aquaponics set up
•growing seeds and transplanting seedlings
•setting up a shade tent
•building outdoor furniture
•building garden frames for the raspberry beds
•building a pizza oven
•harvesting herbs and drying them
But are also super keen to hear your ideas about different projects.
We are happy to share our knowledge and learn together with you/from you.

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 are looking at people who would like to stay at least 3 days and a max of a week. This can possibly be extended
