  • Descripción


    We have several hectares of forest including a large area of regenerating native forest. We started planting trees in 1988 and the increase in biodiversity as the years go by is beautiful to see. We are still planting trees (in winter) but most of the work these days is on dealing with the weeds. The biggest weed we have is old man's beard which is a very rapid climbing plant that smothers trees and kills them. We are desperate for more help to control this pest. We try to ensure that people experience different jobs. You may also help look after the pet pigs, ducks and chickens if you want.

    We live in a beautiful place. Good water and air. Swimming pool and river swims. Beautiful local walks. The property has a network of forest trails that pass through a wide variety of habitats and ecosystems laced with gentle streams. The trails vary in difficulty with the top one leading to an outcrop of white quartz on the ridgeline with expansive views over all of Tasman Bay from Abel Tasman National Park to D'Urville Island on the edge of the Marlborough Sounds. To the east is the expanse of the Richmond Range and to the west is the beautiful skyline of Kahurangi National Park.

    We are also a handy base for local explorations and we are happy to work in with you if you wish to have breaks of some days but to come back to a home base.

    We have space for up to 3 groups of people in three different bedrooms. We do not put different groups into one room. Each person or couple has their own private space.

    Seasonal fruit, nuts and vegetables are usually available. If you bring your own food you need to work an average of 3 hours per day. If you would like us to supply food we expect 4 hours of work per day.

    Please note that we don't take bookings any more than a month ahead
