    Descripción

    I recently quit my job in the city and moved to the remote and beautiful little village of Little Wanganui. I am now working as a contractor doing ecology and conservation work, hunting and gathering from the surrounds and developing a garden and orchard. Mishka the dog also attempts to help with the gardening, emphasis on the word 'attempts' :)

    Stays of 1 to 2 weeks would work best around my erratic work commitments though longer stays are possible

    ***** I'm welcoming someone for the following dates to house and dog sit while I am away working in the mountains- 28th October- 9th November
    15th-26th November
    I have around 6 days of work to do for each trip which is very weather dependant, for the days I'm away all you would need to do is look after Mishka- so if you want a place to yourself by the beach and an awesome dog to hangout with let me know! *****

    I have worked in conservation and ecology for the last decade and can share my knowledge of New Zealand's unique flora and fauna and the challenges it faces. There is a small nature reserve along one boundary of the property and Little Wanganui sits on the doorstep of the Kahurangi National Park. If you really want to experience nature in Aotearoa then there is an immense landscape here to explore.

    Ayuda

    Building raised vege beds, clearing bush/weeding, digging drains, painting, woodwork, dog sitting... lots of projects to work on and create. I follow organic practices and try make use of materials at hand.

  • Alojamiento

    Alojamiento

    Private double bedroom on the ground floor with own deck and toilet. Bedding is available.

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided. I enjoy cooking and am pretty flexible when it comes to any dietary requirements. Taking turns cooking would be great.

    If the work is dog and house sitting while I am away people will need to be largely self sufficient for food as I won't expect anything else to be done

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    Loads of things to do on your time off. The Heaphy track and Old Ghost Road are nearby, there is great fishing, a surf break at the river mouth (guest board available!) and an immense beach to wander.
