    Description

    In return for your help you will be welcome in my home I live on a rural property with the owners house close by. I have no cell phone coverage. I have Wi-Fi and a home phone local calls only.
    I am a retired Maori artist, writer and flax weaving tutor. I am a practitioner in Medicinal Cannabis and sell my products at the markets. I look forward to hearing of weaving stories from other countries. I enjoy learning Tai Chi

    Self help breakfast and lunch, dinner and dishes we share. I am keen to sample other ethnic and vegetarian cooking. My preference is vegetarian type meals but do cook the occasional meat meal, very little knowledge of cooking meat.
