  • Description


    We are a busy household of three - myself (Sebrina), my Husband Stu and my Mum, Karen, situated in Milton, Clutha. Stu and my Mum both work full time and I am studying human nutrition, naturopathy and horticulture full time and part time.

    We are looking for someone to come and stay with us for a week or more to tackle our slightly overgrown gardens - weeding, cutting back, sorting out the veggie garden and tidying up the area. Also we would be looking for help with DIY projects and little bits that need tending to around the home.

    We can offer a room with a double bed with an electric blanket, heater, TV and wardrobe/drawers and unlimited internet. All food can be provided, as well as some beers/wine if you like. I am vegan but I do cook meat for everybody else, so all diets can be catered for.

    We have 2 friendly dogs, 3 rabbits (1 indoor and 2 outdoor), a cat, 4 chickens and 2 roosters.

    If you would like to come and join us for a little while please do get in touch with me :)
