  • Description


    I have a 10 acre property that is being transformed slowly but surely. I love food, both growing and cooking it, I have planted a subtropical food forest. Also stand of trees for firewood and planting the wet out with natives. The dam which I build last year is now ready for those summer swims. I have worked in many areas over my life from actor to cook, truck driver to gardener, all these things culminate in my current life.

    New Zealand is a country constantly in development, with a rich history that goes back a long way. I can offer nothing more than the experience of being on my land in this environment, and looking through my eyes.

  • Help


    I have a 10 acre property which I am turning into a permaculture haven. I need work with the gardens, maintenance of trees and some structural work, such as garden beds and other pieces around the property.
