    Description

    We live in sunny Nelson, New Zealand only a quick walk from the city. The house is shared by a couple and one other flatmates, and 2 very friendly cats.

    Due to work commitments the garden has become overgrown and needs a general tidy, trimming of bushes, etc. We have an area needing to be rotary hoed and would someone who could build some raised vegetable beds. We also have touch up interior painting that needs doing.

    We are seeking friendly and respectful guests that can help with these jobs! Our expectation regarding amount of work is approximately 10-15 hours a week in exchange for a private room. It's up to you when you work, as long as the jobs get done. Physical strength is required for some of this work, particularly for the rotary hoeing. There are also lighter jobs that need doing (e.g. window cleaning, spring cleaning) so we are happy to take on couples.

    Minimum stay 1 week, after that negotiable.
