Help with Eco project
Our place is suited to people who are interested in all that's involved in off grid living, growing organic food and green building, we have lots of knowledge to share and love hearing about how other people do things.
We have all kinds of activities going on here depending on what suits you. We are a busy small farm, growing organic veggies for sale at our local market and some going to local shops and restaurants. We are maintaining an acre of blueberries, vegetable beds and two poly-tunnels, improving off-grid power and water, building stone walls/flower beds and working on our post and beam wood cabin.
We are looking for people who are interested in the lifestyle and willing to pitch in with whatever is going on. You should be independent and willing to help prepare shared meals when needed.
*️️️️*️️️️we are especially interested in people who have some green building or carpentry skills, and those interested in organic vegetable production.
English, and just a few words of French and Spanish
Accommodation is a cosy little caravan with running water, 12v power, wood stove. Or in summer we can make you a very cosy nest in a large tent with lots of bedding - mattress, duvet/blankets, pillows etc. Shared hot shower, compost toilet and campfire... facilities are basic but the craic is mighty! ;)
We're not far from the coast here about 8km to beaches and Rosscarbery, we've a small village nearby and we're about halfway between Clonakilty and Skibbereen towns.
