    Hi yes I am hosting workaways during this time. I generate some of my own power with solar electric and solar hot water, make muesli, laundry detergent, soap, jams, preserves, seed saving, grow beef and vegetables, cook on a wood burning stove in winter and keep bees for honey. While I do these things I don't do them every day as farms are seasonal. I have a variety of animals and general jobs that are ongoing and various.
    The current priority project is the conversion of an area into a tiny house for workaway's. Your separate accommodation in the tiny house has a private kitchen, bathroom, lounge and bedroom with an outside deck area. There is one big bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge which sleeps 2.
    I also teach beekeeping and permaculture courses.
    There is about an acre of pyo (u pick) blueberries though Workawayers will not be helping in any business activities, and that the produce they help with is not sold to the public. September and October is the time to prepare (weed) the house vegetable gardens for planting and I am also establishing a small permaculture food forest.
    This is a small farm but I generate some of my income from it so is an example of how to do that if you are interested. Fred and Wilma are the dogs and they love helpers and are super friendly.

    Vegetarians welcome and smoking is ok outside.

    If I am collecting you from Silverstream train station I will need to collect you from there at 6pm.

    This is an organic farm so principles of composting, eating seasonal food, reduce, reuse and recycle are things that are done on a daily basis.

    Cell phone reception is vodafone and spark not 2 degrees.
    I enjoy a good laugh but appreciate my privacy in the evenings. Look forward to hearing from you soon, cheers Carolann

    Because I have been living an environmentally friendly lifestyle for so long it is normal for me so I don't always think to point out why I do certain things so please feel free to ask a lot of questions. Look around you and observe. This is a busy little place with a lot going on behind the scenes.

    As there is no public transport to the farm I can collect you from Silverstream Railway Station. This is on the Upper Hutt Railway Line & about 40 min out of Wellington Central. I can meet you outside the Charltons pub across the road from the train station.
