  • Description

    Description

    Our property is in the beautiful Otaki gorge, surrounded by bush and overlooking the river. The property is organic and we live a chemical free, natural life. I am a herbalist and am currently setting up a herbal healing garden and retreat cottage. I would love to have some help finishing some building and other creative projects around the property.
