    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Learn to live sustainably fishing, gardening, farming etc. Get involved in eco projects and Maori cultural experiences when possible. Get to know our laid back kiwi lifestyle - come camping, collect shellfish and work with horses - whatever's happening day to day.

    Take the lead on some Eco projects, like complete the outdoor rainwater shower (add plumbing and gas heating) or make a pizza oven.

  • Help


    Really need a hand with horses at the moment, experienced riders would be ideal through to the end of summer. Could include some horse trekking (hand leading on beach).

    Builders, cabinet makers, plumbers also would be super fab - light building work (treehouse, bridge, zipline), general help around house gardening and landscaping, farm work with horses, sheep, farm visits.
