    I have spent my life growing things. First as a farmer, now as an organic orchardist. I would be very happy to talk with you to help you learn about these things, if you are interested.

    I have many things going on on my property, and staying here would give you plenty of ideas of ways you could work on your own land in the future.

    It is a beautiful location, very peaceful, and close to Hastings, Napier & Havelock North. You would have a very happy time here, with plenty to do nearby.

    Hi guys. There is plenty to do. I wouldn't have any paid work available. Just the normal workaway hours.

    I have an organic orchard, and a large garden. I need help with both. Things like
    - Mulching
    - Cleaning out sheds
    - General maintenance in the garden.
    - Helping in my tunnel house where I grow organic vegetables.
    - Etc

    The normal, simple tasks required with property maintenance. However I have many different things happening around the place, so you might find it quite interested.
