  • Description

    Description

    After a few years of dairy farming we now live on a lifestyle block with two beefy’s, a little feijoa orchard, garden, a couple of chucks & ducks, Mertle & Murray the turtles, Gypsy the black cat & Sweet Georgia Brown the Maine coon.

    We have just come back from a long trip around Europe which we loved! We often host people through other well known platform and one of them suggested we sign up to work away too, so here we are. We live right near Whakatane and Rotorua, so there is tonnes of things to do, but mostly we love meeting new people.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live between Whakatane and Rotorua so there is plenty of tourist attractions nearby. Matamata (Hobbiton) is not too far either! There are plenty of tramps nearby including Tarawera falls which is surrounded by native bush which we can take you to.

  • Help

    Help

    Various bits and bobs around the house. A bit of weeding would be great, some tiling and the house could do with a coat of paint! I would also like to do some mosaic projects and just general help around the house, meet new people, maybe even learn a new language.
