Kia ora from the Gateway to the East Coast of New Zealand! We are the Thompson Family, of Māori descent meaning we are the indigenous people of Aotearoa New Zealand. We are a family of 6. Live in a majestic village of Matatā! We also have a half acre of vegetable gardens in which we utilise for our cafes. We live in between the forests and the sea. We love living off the land and sea. Do heaps of fishing and gathering and hunting.

They will get to experience the real New Zealand through our Māori traditions and values. They will get to live with the land and also learn about our traditional Māori Marae and way of living.
We are looking for volunteers that can help with my children as we have a busy lifestyle. Also able to help us in the vegetable gardens.
Room in our 4 bedroom home. Food. Vehicle if need be. We live in a beautiful setting in the hills overlooking the land.
We would love to invite volunteers to experience our Māori way of living. We live a very active lifestyle as well as with the growing of our vegetables. We would love volunteers that would love to be in this environment. There's plenty of sights to see around our area with a bus stop in our local village...
