    CARPENTERS AND GARDENERS WANTED!!
    We have a section on the outskirts of Lake Hawea township which is a 15 minute drive north of Wanaka. If you have transport that makes it much easier. We have one daughter, Minnie, who is 13 (2018). My husband Fin is a woodcraftsman. (He was a buddhist monk (Theravada tradition) for 17 years who still meditates). Skilled or unskilled help around and with the house is GREAT. Other jobs could be in the veggie garden, planting trees, general section maintenance, housework or cooking. I am a professional singer, marriage celebrant, support worker, puppeteer and Cook. We want people who like children obviously!! We look forward to meeting you and you enjoying the beautiful area we live in. We would like a trial period of one night to make sure everone gets on! We are easy-going but we like enthusiastic, friendly people who can work too! You will be expected to act as a guest in our home i.e. everyday chores (dishes) in addition to your time. Please give us some warning of your arrival via email. WE WOULD PREFER SOME GLOWING REFERENCES ABOUT YOU E.G. INITIATIVE, THOUGHTFULNESS AND HARD-WORKERS!! Kiaora! We are very keen on musicians, builders, gardeners, great cooks and spanish-speakers! We have dog and cat. No smokers please.
