Hi there

Thank you for stopping by ;)

We live in a beautiful farmhouse in Goughs Bay, 15-minute drive from Akaroa. We are looking for someone to help us with some gardening work. If you love organic produce, and want to learn and experience a sustainable lifestyle during your stay in New Zealand than this is the right place for you. Ideally, we would prefer someone with some experience in gardening and landscape design. If you don't have any prior experience as such but willing to learn, get your hands dirty and share your creative ideas, then you are welcome as well.  

You will get to enjoy New Zealand farm life and meet our sheep, pet lamp Kulwani and little guy, Brian - the giant, our pet dogs Bella and Ruby and farm dog BOB ;) Of-course, you will also meet our chickens - Margaret, Brown girl, Marry, Princess, Rocky and so on. The last but not the least you will get a chance to feed our ducks - lucky and the flock ;)

We offer free accommodation (your own private room), free dinner (you must provide your own breakfasts and lunches) along with other facilities such as wi-fi, laundry and hot-tub/bath, against 3 hours of work/day six days a week.  (flexible hours). You might need to work a bit longer over the weekends and you can adjust your hours accordingly. And there will be some housekeeping jobs at times, if the weather is not good.

Up to a week at a time.

Our current projects: farmwork, fencing, gardening

Sorry no vegetarians as we raise our own meat. Gluten free is ok.

If you are interested send us an email or your resume and we will get back to you ASAP.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you got any further question(s).

Thank you for your time.

Marie and Asif
