    (Paid nanny role available)

    *Not in NZ yet? New Zealand's borders are currently CLOSED to tourists due to COVID. They may open sometime in 2022, so check before you make plans to come here.

    *Paid role available: We are looking for someone who is great at household help and child care, and we are willing to negotiate a paid position for the right person, who is willing to stay at least a month with us.

    We are a family of 5 who have recently moved from Australia to New Zealand. We are currently staying on a scenic rural property near the village of Wakefield, 20 minutes from Nelson. We have hosted many volunteers over many years at our small intentional community and permaculture farm in Australia, and this is where most of our feedback is from. So we are experienced hosts :) At this time in our lives, we are mostly looking for household help and child care. Household help includes cleaning, tidying, folding laundry, and so on.

    Our kids are 6, 4 and 2, and we plan to homeschool them. We love to go bushwalking, do messy play, crafts, reading, laughing, constructing, inventing and exploring. If you are looking after them, you might play with them in the house or on the property, or take them to activities, playgrounds or play centres. Sometimes you would look after them by yourself, and sometimes we team up to do something fun together. We prefer people who are experienced with caring for children of that age, babysitting, nannying or au pair, and if you have skills like craft, music, gym, or understanding of early childhood learning and development, that's a big bonus for us.

  • Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    You will learn about life in a Kiwi-Aussie-Tyrolean bilingual family ;)

    My interests include aware parenting, learning about early childhood development and how to support children to thrive, bush regeneration, native ecosystems, plants and animals in Australia and New Zealand, 'homesteading', healthy diet eg fermenting and reduced carbs, social justice, waste reduction and climate action. Gregor's interests include intermittent fasting, playing guitar and singing German songs with the kids, self responsibility, and 'meta politics' (ask him more!)

    Our community project: We have taken a break from our ' project, but we hope to return to it in the future. We aim to create an extended family or tribe to support each other in the journey of raising children, and give the kids (and adults) a different experience. If you are interested in how intentional communities form and work, and what the benefits might be, we are happy to talk about that.

    When new helpers arrive, we spend the first few days getting to know each other and make sure it is a good fit for everyone. After this, we prefer helpers to stay with us for two weeks or longer, as we find this leads to a better experience.

    We ask for your help 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. But we're happy to work out different arrangements if you prefer. We try to match the work with your skills and interests if possible. We value helpers who are proactive, enjoy contributing, and know how to get things done.

    We provide all your food, except treats and alcohol (we are happy to pick them up for you though). We usually have dinner together, while breakfast and lunch are usually self serve. We have a mixed diet, and can cater to most diets including vegetarian, vegan, paleo, low carb, gluten free, dairy free.

    We prefer non smokers, but if you do smoke, please let us know. Butts should be disposed of thoughtfully and please smoke away from the house.

    We want you to feel at home when you stay with us! You always welcome to talk to us about any questions or concerns. If you have particular needs or circumstances, please let us know before you arrive so that we can be sure we can accommodate you.

    The property is about 10 peaceful acres of lawn and trees, with a small river at the back. There's a trampoline, zipline, treehouse and swings for the kids, and a small vegie garden and some fruit trees. The house is tidy, comfortable and modern. We fell in love with the place straight away when we visited! The small village of Wakefield is a couple of minutes away. We are 30 minutes from Nelson and the beach, 35 minutes from Motueka, and one hour to Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks. Days off can be spent visiting these places, or relaxing at home and on the property.

    There are some local bus routes, and we could lend you a car sometimes if needed.
