  • Description

    Description

    This is a 3.5 acre property with a beautiful stream on the boundary. I am completely off grid and developing the property on permaculture principles. I’ve recently moved a three bedroom cottage onto the property and am in the process of renovating so that will make up the bulk of the work at the moment.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a high school science teacher with some training in organic horticulture and permaculture. I'm always happy to share what I know. None of the jobs that need doing need experience as I will be working alongside you and you can learn anything from gardening, to building structures and landscaping.

    I am 6 km from the Stratford Plateau on Mt Taranaki with access to lots of walks in the park. In just a 30 minute drive there is also swimming, surfing, and other outdoor pursuits. Art galleries includes Len Lye Centre and Puke Ariki. There is also Paritutu and back beach.
    I can cater for both meat eaters and vegetarians.
