  • Description


    I am a semi retired Naturopath and Osteopath and well traveled myself. I volunteered in 2 projects in Africa last year. It was amazing...
    My partner Joe is American, on his way to becoming a Kiwi. He has recently retired after 25yrs as a State Trooper... He is a regular genius. Not your regular Bloke. Loves hiking, wine making, bee keeping, flying and guitar.

    I Love windsurfing. We both love beaches & diving, gardening, outdoors, art, refurbishing, music, dancing, healthy sustainable living. Creating beautiful environments . Relationships & things. This project is to turn an exquisite farmlet, that is 4km from gorgeous Keri Keri to its former glory or better...
    It will be fun and creative.
    I retain my beach house in Manly Beach in Ak and will go back there sometimes to see family.
    Humbley you might like to check out my 100% rating for my Manly Beach hosting over the last 6 years.
    Tasks here range from cleaning, mending, gardening, orchard work, building, art project etc
    We have chickens, Dotti the tame cow and miss Kat.
