  • Description

    Description

    I am a life loving woman, a mother & grandmother. Recently I moved to Rakino Island, in the Hauraki Gulf. I am off grid, there are no shops here, but there is plenty of garden work, fishing swimming, rare birds, beautiful scenery & fabulous people.

    You will get the fantastic experience of living off grid, on an island with no shops. Many rare species of birds live here, as the island is pest free, no rats, mice, ferrets etc. The community is very small, 25 people, they are fun & worth meeting. Fishing is great here & the swimming too. Come on, visit here & see for yourself. It is beautiful.

    The garden at my new house is very overgrown. I want you to help me find the garden & reform it. There are lost fruit trees & pathways, hidden under vines & long grass. There is also planting to do later.
