Payment: $20 per hour Location: Hanmer Springs
Region: Christchurch & Canterbury Experience: Experience Necessary

I am looking for a couple (or single mature person) to help out on a lifestyle property growing organic herbs for processing and sale and taking care of horses.    There is a nice self contained cottage that sleeps 4 (one queen 2 singles) and   Hanmer Springs tourist town is only a few kms away and there is lots of casual summr work available, (new hotel just opened plus bar, barista, cooking, electrician, farm work, bakery work on offer)   My arrangement is I offer the fully furnished and equipped cottage with free power and WIFI, and fresh garden veges and eggs through summer for around 15 to 20 hours a week assistance.  Depending on your skill set there may be some paid work at times but not steady hours on the farm.  My times required for assistance are flexible to fit around any paid work you wish to take on.    I can help you obtain full or part time paid work in the village, of which there is plenty.   

TO suit my situation Ideally you will be a bit of a handy person (s), not affraid of using tools, and like gardening and animals.   RIding skills would be helpful but not essential as long as you dont mind handling horses, feeding, rugs on or off etc.   Being friendly, honest & enthusiastic is important.   I have 7 horses, and an organic herbal garden where we grow and process herbs into medicines for people and animals.    You must like cats. If you are really into horses and would like to learn more about equine therapies this is also a great opportunity. I am a certified tutor for Equine Touch and other modalities.   Many of my past working pupils have gone on to be equine therapists in their home countries.      I prefer applicants who have a desire to either learn more about herbs and medicines, or equine therapies.   Start  is anytime, my lovely recent backpackers have now moved on to travel a little before heading overseas.    I can give you the details of local recruitment lady if you want to find out directly about paid full/part time work options.
