Hi there. We are a small family running an organic plant nursery from home. We also have a large orchard, extensive vege garden and berries to keep us busy and well fed. We have milking goats, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbit, cats and a puppy, and we live opposite a stunning clean river, a few minutes to the beach and at the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park!
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our property is run organically, so its a great place for hands on learning on how to grow food well.
Plus heaps of opportunities to learn many small scale farming skills.
What we would love right now is a pair of hands to help harvest our garlic. This involves weeding, lifting, grading, hanging.
Other tasks around the place include weeding in the vege garden, building a chicken tractor, and a real bonus would playing and sharing your creative talents with our 6 year old daughter!
