  • Description


    "Together we can co-create the world we want to live in"

    A beautiful large lush bush property nestled in the foothills of Kahurangi National Park. Situated next to a 4 day hiking/bike trail just 15 min out of town. I live off the grid, close to the land using sustainable practices. Looking to create a beautiful peaceful place where people can connect more deeply with nature, a place where people can drop out from the fast paced life and be more present with themselves and each other. Have various projects on the go depending on peoples skills and passions which involve bush craft and simple building skills. And there is always plenty to do in my permaculture garden :)

    I live a simple alternative lifestyle..growing food, meditating and doing yoga.

    If you would like to stay in a peaceful place and experience life in the bush and if you enjoy helping out and creating then please contact me...

    Djura :)
