We are a family of 5 who live on a 11 acre farm in Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, 25 mins from Mount Maunganui surf beach. We need some help with renovating our house and work on the garden.
The work involved would be basic Reno work inside the house, painting outside, clearing the garden and planting. The farm is surrounded by trees and has lots of birds and very peaceful. Lots of walks/hikes around and Tauranga township only 20 mins away.
We have travelled a lot and have been Workawayers ourselves so we know what it’s like to work in different places and meet people from different cultures.
As we have been Workawayers before we know how it feels to benefit from a Workaway. We have 3 kids who loved working on farms overseas and love to meet new people from around the world. We all met amazing people from different cultures and learnt a lot from others.
We live in a beautiful area where a lot of travellers from all over the world come. Amazing beaches are only 25 mins away, beautiful walks and rivers nearby. We also only 35 mins from Rotorua which is a highly popular place for tourists to do a huge range of activities. We have done them all so can offer help and advise in the local area. We have recently moved into the country so would love to share amazing green space and a peaceful environment.
The tasks will be a variety of things as we are renovating our house. Helping with painting in and outside of house. Removal of plants, lots of gardening including vege gardens and replanting both the vege garden and landscaping. Helping with any animals on the farm.
Building of chicken coop and helping with other buildings around the farm.
Options for double and single beds inside the house with own lounge area and heating, very cosy. Has a huge space seperate from family. Breakfast and dinner would be provided and most probably cooked for you! As we have 3 kids we are already cooking and you would just join in if you want that. Lunch can be a self service type when you need it.
The Bag of Plenty is one of the most popular areas for tourist to visit NZ. Lovely surf beaches, hikes, waterfalls and rivers. Mount Maunganui is 24 mins away and lots of cafes/restaurants and the Mount itself, climbing to the top and around. Papamoa also same distance offering beautiful surf beach.
Rotorua is only 35 mins away offering a huge amount of fun activities from Adrenalin outdoor adventures to cultural NZ shows. Mud pools, geysers, cafes and world class mountain biking and hiking, river rafting... the list goes on! Lots of gorgeous lakes surround Rotorua.
We are also close the TECT park which offers tree tops adventures, hiking and biking.
