    Hi there weare a family of 6 and this mumma and papa need extra hands .....we are so behind in our garden we need garden fairies we have our normal list of many jobs ...We are an off grid family in the forest in the hills of far north New Zealand.We need help in many areas building.gardens.weed and scrub clearing.housework.children.We have visions of a sustainable family block that we can preserve and reserve for our future generations.We have an 80acre block of forest with a few small clearings .We have horses chickens ducks birds bunnies cats dogs and 4freerange children.We live up in the hills so the views are spectacular.

    If your wanting to get away and immerse your selves in a alternative life come stay with us.There's always plenty to do.
    We are remote some people say so remote we live on the moon.We like helpers that are interested in an alternative sustainable life that can work well with us or be left to complete tasks on their own in a forward thinking self motivated manner.Building living and with many projects happening at once as well as freerange kids and animals can be messy please come to us with open unjudgementle minds remembering 'out of caos rises beauty.'

    Your accommodation is an original housetruck she is self contained and very cute.Back to basics but comfortable.Composting toilet and solar heated shower unless the sunshine is shining it's cold (fresh lol).

    Hope this all sounds good.
    Arohanui Tania Jeremy and the freerange4.
