About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We are a couple who live on the edge of the city, a short drive to the beautiful Waitakere Ranges, and only a 20 min drive to amazing west coast surf beaches. We require assistance to convert a shipping container into a livable tiny home. Hopefully as budget allows this will be a self contained off grid shipping container.

We are a multicultural couple, I am NZ European, and George is NZ Maori. George works as a groundsman for the Inner city Auckland Parks and I am a nurse working with family doctors at a local Medical Practice.
we enjoy getting out in the outdoors, going the the snow, the beach and to our respective parents farms in Dargaville and Whakatane. We are both Christians.
