    Description

    Family with a bit of land seeking to grow gardens, care for animals and live more sustainably. We are friendly, enjoy cultural exchanges and love to encourage others to enjoy the region and NZ.
    It is an absolutely beautiful spot here in North Nelson. Only 15min or 12km from the city CBD but yet out amongst plenty of nature. We have chickens, geese, goats a few sheep and dogs.
    We are mainly a vegetarian family and make food from scratch. People who stay with us will need to be conscious of reducing waste and water use.
    Currently we are working to install a large garden.
