  • Description


    We aI have a 56 hectare dry stock farm nestled in a valley one hour North of Auckland city. We have a conservation focus and there are stands of beautiful natives trees on the river flats and on the hills. We have garden areas that have outdoor crystals that help create a peaceful setting. The project we have is help with garden maintenance, weeding and wheel barrow mulch.

    In this part of New Zealand we are on the cusp of being Subtropical and we need help to tidy the rampant growth of our plantings and the perennial unwanted plants.

    The ideal volunteer is someone who is physically fit, enjoys being outside and who has their own initiative. Your host likes DIY (do it yourself) as well as being a Reiki Master and Teacher).

    The farm is 25 minutes away from the Eastern white sand beaches.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are always keen to share our passion for the natural flora and creating our place of paradise. If the helpers are keen on DIY, landscaping, tiling and solid plastering we will happily share our DIY knowledge. We are getting ready to have Retreats so there is plenty of opportunity to discuss esoteric topics!

  • Help


    Our garden maintenance would suit one or two helpers that enjoy the outdoors, physically strong and fit. No smokers please. All diets are catered for. We do not offer wifi so you will need your own mobile data but the local library (5 minutes away by car) does have wifi.

    We are currently needing to finish the plastering of our crystal landscape feature as well as planting, weeding and mulching.
