We have a beautiful 7 acre lifestyle block in Hira, which has a large patch of native bush and wonderful birdlife. We're in the process of regenerating about two thirds of the land back to native forest and would love help to develop and maintain the project. The property overlooks the valley and also has a fruit orchard, bee hives, vegetable garden and some friendly Gotland sheep. It's about 15-20 minute drive from Nelson City, so it is highly recommended that you have your own vehicle.
For accommodation we have a beautiful purpose built cabin, built on the edge of the bush with stunning views down the valley. There is a compost toilet and outdoor shower room. If this does not appeal, or during the cooler winter months, you are welcome to stay in our home with us. If you are travelling with friends, the cabin can accommodate up to two couples.
John is a registered nurse and Fiona is a social worker, we have an avid interest in the natural environment and conservation, and love meeting interesting people!

Taking part in conservation and regenerating bush is a rewarding process, especially amongst the birdlife that is already flourishing from the existing work. We can teach how to identify the native plants and birds, how to control pests, and how to develop and maintain planting projects. We love to hear about travellers adventures and their cultures and have travelled extensively ourselves. We're also happy to help you practice English if you're learning.
Conservation work, weeding, trap maintenance, track building and maintenance, planting, fruit thinning and picking, general gardening.
The majority of the work is outdoors so a reasonable level of fitness is preferable, and we're happy to teach skills if required.
Seperate cabin, or in house. We've got an awesome outdoor bathtub and shower as well as our indoor facilities.
We cook excellent healthy food, with lots of produce from the property, and wild game. Also happy to cook vegetarian meals if preferable.
There's so much to do in the Nelson and Marlborough region, especially if you like the outdoors - there's three stunning National Parks within less than 2 hours drive! We'd love to give you recommendations for tramping/hiking trips, and general sight-seeing, as well as the great food places to check out in the city.
