    I live in Whangarei, 2 hours north of Auckland, and a short drive from endless beaches, rivers, waterfalls just 20 minutes away from Whangarei CBD and about an hour from the Bay of Islands.
    I have a 3-acre lifestyle block with a small herd of Alpacas and some friendly pet sheep. I have a number of fruit trees and landscaping shrubs.
    The place is very peaceful with native trees around, two streams running through the property and two large ponds with waterfalls, ducks, eels, frogs, fish and other water birds.
    The house is new and helpers will have their own private bedroom and bathroom.

    There is no bus service to the area so you will need your own transport to get here and to explore the area in your free time.

    Help needed mainly with landscaping around the ponds and waterfalls, care of the fruit trees and other plants, spreading organic fertilizer, some work with the alpacas and cleaning and tidying jobs in the house and on the property.

    There are several options of work exchange that depend on how busy we get and how much work around. If things are quiet here you may be able to get away with 2 -3 hours of work a day which will give you plenty of time to explore the area.
