    If you’ve seen our profile before, some of the good news is that volunteers no longer need a driving licence!

    But you do need to be a tree-lover, because most of the work we now need doing relates to trees. They need planting and pruning and carefully strimming around them. And if a storm blows some of them down, skill with a chainsaw would be useful. There will be gardening too, from time to time, with excellent advice available.

    So what else? We like people to be happy here, and this can become a problem on wr winter days UNLESS you enjoy reading. In that case, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about as we have a warm Reading Room and thousands of books, fiction and non-fiction, on every subject and for every age.

    There could be comfortable space for a couple of volunteers, but only - and here we have learnt from our mistakes! - if they are happy to do twice the amount of work.

    The host is called Christopher, a retired teacher and lover of trees and he has the wonderful help of Stella, carer, fellow-thinker, gardener and cook par excellence. And of course we are both great readers!
    If you want to know more about Christopher you can look him up at CDFettes

    If you would like to stay for a month or more, that too is possible, and we would be especially interested in a talented young family considering an experimental year of HOME SCHOOLING. But in that case we would like to get to know you first, and for you to get to know us. We would therefore be happy to invite you here for a couple of days, and to subsidise your travels, to see how we would get on. But don’t forget: no meat, no fish, no smokers!

  • Was noch ...

    Was noch ...

    All our gardening is organic, and we compost everything we can. Where that is not possible we carefully recycle wherever possible. A new farmer’s market nearby encourages this.

    We are not just vegetarians but also do our best to respect other forms of life.

    Forests, organic apple orchard, Slieve Bloom Mountains, traditional villages, 2 bicycles available.

    All of these facilities are available for visitors who are seriously interested in all the possibilities for the help available. Nobody is asked to do work they wouldn't enjoy!

    Many friends visit when Mr Covid allows!
