    Description

    Unfortunately we are booked out until mid February 2020

    It's a good idea to check out Great Barrier Island where we live and how to get here before you apply

    We (husband and wife) live in a large architecturally designed house on 4 hectares of land overlooking Tryphena Harbour
    We have a large garden - both ornamental and vegetables from which we eat. While not totally organic we try to use organic techniques to grow our food
    We have a small boat and always need encouragement to take time off and go fishing.
    We always have masses of projects going on, as we attempt to be as self sufficient as possible - without losing out on the luxuries of life. Our projects include gardening, building, websites and making papercrete building blocks etc etc
    Great Barrier Island has no reticulated power or water. So we have 8 solar panels, which provide most of our power. Our water is from a spring (imagine water that has been filtered for thousands of years) or rainwater.
    Our water is heated by the sun, and when this isn't hot enough we have a wetback to warm it. Heating is with a fire. But this been said we have all the modern appliances - to make life as easy as possible.
    We always have lots of projects But this year what we are concentrating on is:
    The garden - both vegetables and ornamental. While not 100% organic we use organic principals to grow the food we eat. So tasks include seed raising, planting, weeding, pruning, mulching and harvesting

    Look forward to hearing from you

    I also appreciate if you let us know if you have specific dietry requirements or allegies. Living on an island it can be really hard to cater for these.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live very close to nature in a very comfortable way and while living with us we will give you tips on doing the same
    Due to being off grid we necessarily live fairly sustainably and when you are with us you too will need to learn to live like this.

    Our projects projects also include building, painting, firewood and seaweed collection, websites and making papercrete building blocks etc etc

    We are negotiable on how we work the hours of work so you have time to explore our wonderful island. What we prefer is that you assist us for 6 hours a day 5 days a week, but as I said we are negotiable on that

    We are looking for people who can think for themselves and think they could assist with any of the above projects
    A reasonable level of maturity is needed
