I have a beautiful property adjacent to Morere Hot Springs, east coast of the North Island. This summer (Jan-March 2016) I am looking for people to help me establish water gardens and a small nursery, as well as carpenters, landscapers, tile/brick layers etc. I will provide accommodation and food (have been a WWOOF host many years) and for skilled workers, small wages too.

Located in a beautiful valley surrounded by NZ Conservation scenic reserve, with water supplied by mineral springs and bordering stream. Stay for a week or two, enjoying nearby Mahia beaches and Lake Waikaremoana. There is also a long-term opportunity for developing a home / business with a long-term lease to right person / investor. Kia ora, Nancy

Greetings.

I am interested to know more about you all and what you do. I am on a different continent and have a passport, so let me know what that looks like for you all.

I wonder what a water garden is?

I am looking for something more long term with a trail option. I refrain from flying on planes, do you know a boat option?

Here is my advertisement of community I seek:

Please let me know what you think!

Good on you. Do you sail? There are crew options to get to NZ from Australia, or the Pacific Islands. But of course you need to get to them by boat too. Where are you coming from?

Greetings.

I appreciate the reply and need to figure out how to join sailing crews. I have some experience with sailing, knot typing and star navigation.

I am in North America, the united states. I am able to leave out of any coastal location.

Hey Nancy-

This seems like an amazing opportunity!

I'd love to help out and I'll be in New Zealand soon!

I sent you a PM, but my email is rkozloff@uvm.edu

I really hope to hear from you soon!

Rob
