    Hi... I'm a busy dairy farming mother of two. We are living in beautifull southland close to invercargill. I'm seeking help For gardening projects, general housework and sometimes with looking after the kids. Im always happy to host superprofessional cooks so i can skip cooking for a while. We speak English and German. The kids also Spanish. I'm vegetarian. I make sourdough bread. I have got a young dog who loves a bit of company and a couple of chickens. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me.

    I mainly look for someone who can run the household by themselves while i am at work. That includes cooking and general cleaning. From time to time i need someone to look after the two kids. They are both school aged. Help in the garden would be also highly appreciated. There is a tunnel house and a vege and a flower garden. So always lots to do...

    We are 20 minutes away from invercargill and 15 from riverton. THE catlins are an hour away. queenstown only 2 and I half. 2 hours to te anau. SO we are in the centre of all those nice tourist attractions what you have to see when you come down here.
    I'd expect a volunteer to fit in with our family. Respect kids and animals and be a non smoker. Also an own transport would be benificial as we live far away from public transport options.
