About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We live in Blenheim NZ and have a holiday home an hour north in the Kenepuru sound. It is set in 1 ha of bush which needs some weed and scrub clearing.
We also have an avocado orchard in need of pruning, weed spraying and tidying up. It has over 100 trees and is 1 hour south of Blenheim on the East coast, between Kekerengu and Clarence Bridge. There is a good 2 bedroom cottage here.

We are partners who have both lost our other halves to cancer. We have 6 children and 22 grandchildren between us. We live on a vineyard which is managed by others and is on the edge of Blenheim. Both have retired from farming sheep and cattle for 50 or so years.
Looking after 4 properties, grandchildren and sailing / boating are our main activities.
