Hi we are a wee pro choice, freedom loving family of 3! Living on 3 acres of land tucked into the bush on the Tutukaka coast.
Our family consists of a Naturopath / medical herbalist and trained yoga teacher , 2 beautiful children 10 and 18, 2 snuggly cats & a snuggly mastiff cross, recently rescued called Sharlo, a cav king charles spaniel Saphie, and Rough collie fast growing puppy Fraizer, 2 pet sheep Nellie and Wokie :-D
We have a 3 bedroom home, still to have some painting, an interior compost loo, 2 story cabin and old caravan
And in summer a 7mtr above ground swimming pool, which gets alot of use.
An 8 metre diameter Tipi is yet to be erected on the land, from which Yoga and workshops will eventually be taught!
We are pretty relaxed, like to laugh so workawayers with sense of humors is a must!!!
We eat some vegetarian meals but eat meat and dairy, happy for vegetarians and vegans to create their own meals.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
You can learn sone good old kiwi humor :-) How to get rid of gorse the no spray way. How to cohabitate in a relaxed & friendly typical new zealand lifestyle block environment!!
There is much to be done here, at the moment, helping sort and tidy, clearing gorse with scrub cutter, some painting and building projects, but there is always house work, to be done and we have started to create a food forest and vegetable garden, so any landscaping or permaculture guidance also very welcome!!!
