After three weeks spent tramping the south of the south island over Christmas, Mizuki and I are back in Nelson. We put out some feelers for a place to stay and heard back from Isobel. In exchange for helping her to build and maintain her large permaculture garden we will live rent-free on her property. Looking forward to having very low fixed expenses and, even more so, to learning a great deal about gardening.
