    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located 50 mins from Rotorua which has an abundance of cultural experiences available. Whakatane is home to the spectacular White Island & closer to shore Whale Island, both of which offer unique experiences with nature & the environment.

  • Help


    We would love some help on our 2 hectare property which is surrounded with native Manuka & Kanuka trees. We have extensive gardens including a number of different fruit trees & a productive vegetable garden. Im always in need of people who are keen to be outdoors & dont mind getting their hands dirty.

    Anyone who has experience in the trades - handymen/women would be greatly valued as I'm always trying to encourage innovative & sustainable methods of irrigation utilising rainwater around the property. I require 4-5 hours a day for 2 week periods.
