    Description

    Hi

    We have just moved and downsized and need help with a new garden.. We live on a 1 ha property in the far north, just off SH1 (the main north-south route) about 5 mins from Waipapa and 10 mins from Kerikeri. Your own transport would be ideal, but we can provide lifts to most places like Paihia beaches, Ngawha hot pools. Angela speaks fluent German and enough French to cope with basics.

    We have two dogs, a very small orchard and a neglected garden.
