  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple living on a small farm just south of Timaru on the east coast of the beautiful South Island, New Zealand. Timaru is a small city with a safe beach called Caroline Bay.
    On the farm we have a few cattle and lease some land out to some girls to use for their for horses.
    There is a large vegetable and fruit garden and we like to eat fresh from our garden as much as possible over the summer season. We grow our garden mostly by organic methods and try to preserve as much as we can of our produce for off season use.
    We feel like our home is a little piece of paradise.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We have travelled to and lived in several different countries and we have always preferred to live locally rather than as a tourist. If you stay with us you will live local and learn what it is like to be a kiwi!

  • Aide

    Aide

    Overseas we did voluntary work for others and since returning home we have been grateful to have some help to get our property back in shape.

    Specific helpers needed over the next few months include:

    Aquaponics expertise and experience - we have begun construction of a small aquaponics system inside a greenhouse but would value the input of people who have experience in hydroponics and aquaponics as we get the system going.

    Carpentry or building skills, concreting or tiling experience for several projects

    Help is always appreciated during the summer with tidying up gardens and may include control of larger weeds in the paddocks. We try not to use too many sprays but sometimes need to spray thistles etc in the paddocks and this may be something you could help with. If you can use equipment such as chainsaw, brushcutter and lawnmower we'd like to hear from you. Ideally we would like someone who can work independently to just get on with what needs to be done.

    We would also love to learn how to cook some of your local dishes. If you have practical skills and are willing to roll up your sleeves and work alongside us you will fit right in!

    Please refer to our calendar for availability.

    We have several nice tracks close to our home which can be explored on foot or bicycle (available for loan) and it is a just ten minute bike ride to the coastal tracks and/or scenic reserves, another 10 minutes will get you into city centre and to the lovely swimming beach at Caroline Bay. Dunedin, Christchurch, Mount Cook, Tekapo and the beautiful southern lakes are within 2-3 hours drive and are options for a good day trip from here if you have a vehicle.
