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.

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 currently need help on weekends only for the following dates:
August 10th&11th, 17th&18th, 24th&25th, 31st
Sept 1st, 7th&8th, 14th&15th.
I will also need help for two weeks between Sept 28th - Oct 12th
Projects consist of:
House renovation - just interior painting now.
Garden work - the usual weeding, composting, pruning, mowing and mulching, but also help with the conversion of an
orchard into a food forest, and building stairs down to the river.
Own room - with a double bed and private bathroom.
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.
