  • Description

    Description

    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 help just in the garden and a few jobs around the farm.
    The work involved is all outside, we have farm animals so help with sorting them would he helpful also. 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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.
