  • Description


    We are a family of 4 that includes Philip and me and our two sons aged 23 and 25. Now, only Reuben 23 and I live in our house. Philip lives in a nursing care home and Jericho 25 lives in Wellington.
    We live in Sandringham, Auckland which is 15-20 minutes from city and beach by bike, which we mostly use for transport. We have some spare ones for workawayers to use. There is also bus and train.

    I need help with garden (permaculture) and inside house. Whatever skills you may have, I would try to match with a project.

    We have had many workaways in the past and enjoy having guests from other countries to stay.

    We have not used this website since early 2020. Our last two workawayers stayed on longer term(1-2 years) after Covid began. The last one left 3 weeks ago.

    We look forward to beginning again with new workawayers.
