LONG TERM STAY ON ORGANIC PERMACULTURE FARM (Raglan)

Liz and Rick have a vacancy for 1-2 people to stay, work, and learn for 12 months from early May 2012.  They offer stays for a whole year to experience a full round of seasons on their organic farm. Shorter stays considered but ideally not less than 6 months.

The arrangement is based on Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (“woofing”) guidelines ie 20 hours’ work per week in return for full board including wireless internet.

Liz and Rick are a family of four, plus dog and cats, living on a small block 5km from Raglan and about 8km from surf.  They grow a variety of crops as well as food forests and small animals. This produced is mostly sold locally including at the monthly Raglan market and soon Cambridge/Hamilton farmers markets. Their basil pesto made with local ingredients is well-known locally.

Accommodation is a large open plan loft space with electricity. Kitchen and bathroom facilities are shared with the family. They like to share meals together. Much of the available food is from the land or purchased from an organic food co-op. They are omnivores but can accommodate other diets.

If interested in this opportunity please email: lizrick@slingshot.co.nz
