  • Description


    We have two very nice rural life-style properties, one 35mins from Wellington where we live mostly, and one in the Gladstone area, Wairarapa. We love welcoming and working alongside our new visitors. We are a married couple, our daughter still lives with us and my elderly mother.
    We have quite large gardens, and would like help with maintaining these, and general small farm jobs.
