Reference nr. 2817 : Wild Side Charitable Trust (Arapohue Rural Retreat)
Handyperson & Builder

Arapohue Rural Retreat is a faith-based community where the hurting, the lonely and the troubled find hope, healing and love. It is a very special respite, surrounded by native bush and healing horses.

You're invited to help us restore the accommodation, a community vegetable garden and orchard, plus build facilities for the equine mentoring programme in this new haven.

We would love help with various handy-person & building tasks around the property:
  • re-do the porches of the retreat huts and the houses to make sure they are stable (we have poles and tools)
  • stabilise a few parts of the houses

If you want to stay for a bit and enjoy the beautiful countryside, we can accommodate you in one of the buildings and provide your meals. If you want to come in for the day, we will provide lunch. We can also reimburse you for gas money.
You can come in and help as a one-off, for a few days or weeks or longer-term. The work can be done anytime to fit in with your schedule.
We will show you around and chat about which work you want to do and what support or supplies you will need for that. No additional training needed.
