Im looking for a hand or two with devloping my small off grid project, Im a 31yr old male based in very scenic West Cork in Ireland ,on a half acre of land.. 16km from the town of Bantry, 8km to ancient wooded Glengarrif, and just 2 hours from Cork City, its the most scenic stunning part of Ireland , remote but central. My land is 6km from the nearest bus route..
My project is turning waterloged bog land into fertile rich woodland and gardens , by planting trees and vegetable patches and making ponds,drains etc.. spring and summer is coming and i find extra help makes me work better, the location is 16km from the nearest town, the nearest shop is 6km away, my location is in the mountains a few miles from the coast, its a very special ancient place and i can only accept people who are enthusiastic and want to learn and have a love for the land and nature..i am off grid , and use the power of the sun and collect water that falls from the sky, i have a compost toilet, clothes washing is done by hand with chemical free soap or a trip to the 24hr washing machines 6km away, i dont drive so cycling walking and hitching is the way to find me, i grow my own vegetables and herbs etc every year and im always expanding the garden.
This is a good place for people who like it rustic and close to nature
I am still learning as i go ,so i want to learn from others too
Helping hours would be a few hours a day for 4 or 5 days , and that will be for no pay , but will include 3 meals a day and snacks, alcohol and accomadation.. no stays longer than 1 weeek
Im a dj and part time artist so music and art are very important to me so applicants who have love for art an funky music like dub,reggae,balkan etc would like it here.. This is an amazing place and help is always appreciated towards making it a sustainable fertile haven :)
