We are a family of four living on stunning Great Barrier Island New-Zealand. I am starting a new adventure in permaculture gardening. I am studying and taking over the management of the local community garden, as well as trying to expand our own gardens and working on a plan for the garden to kitchen project for the school. Shane runs the local tyreshop and is a passionate fisherman. The island is a natural paradise, rustic and challenging at times. Covered in native Forrest and surrounded by ocean suitable for every ocean lover. Fishing, diving, surfing, swimming etc. Beautiful inspiring local community and a lot of space for exploring and adventure.

We mainly need help with household tasks such as food preparation, cooking, washing up, vacuum,sweeping, laundry. Our 4 year old will be at home too and will hover between being inside with you while doing some chores or with me in the gardens. This way I can have time trying to get some plans in place and work done in the gardens we are creating. Also some gardening, firewood,etc.! We have a huge area of jasmin scrub that needs clearing. This is more fun together.
We have a cute little cottage available where you can have your own space. There is a flush toilet but shower is not in working order, also no electricity. You can use our electricity, kitchen and bathroom etc in the main house. We provide food as we would eat in our family. We would LOVE it if you are keen in the kitchen! If you have any special diet needs you might have to source your own special foods but we mainly eat what the island provides. You can have brekkie, lunch, dinner and whatever is needed to keep you healthy and energetic. But help yourself and clean up after yourself.
We have telephone and internet access but this place is for the person capable of entertaining him/herself not the digital kind of place. Our home runs on solar power so care needs to be taken when using energy. Our only water comes from the rain so extreme care needs to be taken to use water in a smart way (winter is a bit easier on the water supply).
It is easy to hitchhike around the island and walk if you are fit. Great island for exploring, adventure, walking, swimming, yoga, fishing, spearfishing, diving, snorkeling, art, reading etc. Be able to entertain yourself or play with kids, our home is not designed for lounging( yet) we live an outdoor lifestyle. On wet days we do however always have the cozy fire burning and make breads and cakes! If time allows.
