I live on Waiheke Island on a seaside block with boat only access. My place is 10 acres of regenerating bush siting right on the waters edge. I have a small orchard and some vegetable gardens that I am developing to produce a lot of the food I eat and I catch fish and collect shellfish from in front of my place. I am mostly vegetarian, whole food dairy free. I have power by solar pannels and harvest rain water. I have limited internet access via a hotspot from my cellphone. I am a non smoker.
Accommodation and food is provided in return for 3-4 hours work per day, 5 days a week.

To practice English, gardening, and meet someone living a mostly self sufficient lifestyle on a block with only access being by a 3.6 metre dingy ride ,1. 25 km across the bay from the road end where my car is parked.
The work is mainly gardening and compost making with some building work and track making. The compostIng involves collecting seaweed when available and lots of leaf litter. Also I have a motorised chipper to produce composting chips from a lot of encroaching bush.
Sleeping is all at one level with a curtain separating the host from the workawayers.
When here, time off can be spent going for walks along the beach, I have a fibreglass dingy that can be rowed and a board that can be paddled. There is also swimming!
