    I am thinking of the possibility hosting again.
    Stay safe wherever you are.

    Please send me a personal message and i prefer to spend my time with people i click with. Meaning someone who has at least some similar interests.
    Some of the things i am interested in are the following list. These things just popped into my head so you don't need to be interested in everything here but if you're not interested in anything on the list then maybe look elsewhere:-)
    The environment
    Growing food
    Self sufficiency
    Soil building
    Zero waste
    Extinction rebellion
    Green woodworking
    Spoon carving
    Head Massage
    Arts and crafts

    I prefer people who are spending some time in Ireland and want to see some of the country over someone that fly,s in. spends 2 weeks with me then fly,s home.
    If you are in the country already even better.

    now that that is out of the way i hope this finds you happy and well,
    i don't plan that far ahead so last minute works well for me and an immediate start would be ideal.
    i live in a small cottage in the heart of Ireland and try to grow as much of my own food as possible and live a low-impact simple kind of life on 1.5 acres. no tv ,no fridge and i have a compost loo :)
    The nearest village is about 1 km away, it has 1 shop and 3 pubs.
    i eat mainly vegetarian and i can eat close to vegan, if the helper chooses and it makes cooking easier.
    but i am more interested in eating what comes from my site as opposed to from the shop.
    i studied Permaculture on a two years course in kinsale ireland a few years back and got my hands on this old cottage and have implemented some aspects around the place, have done lots of renovation changes to the place giving it a bit of a rustic feel.
    my ex partner "Claudia" and i have a little 4 year old girl and my daughter "Alma" stays with me a few nights a week but i see her nearly every day and she is around a lot ,
    Main tasks here at the moment include getting the garden ready,for spring
    as well as help out with whatever is going on at the time.I looking for helpers that are interested in the way i live have a open mind It's important for me that you are
    "Enthusiastic"and Motivated !
    and a pleasure to be around. i want to give helpers a hug when we say goodbye and say to myself "that was a lovely experience" not "glad their gone"
    I have had both over the years and enjoy first type a lot more, unsurprisingly!

    If you are interested feel free to ask any questions :) everything is flexible,
    may you be well and may you be happy :)

    ps: i am new enough to this site but have hosted probably 20 plus volunteers through another platform.
    i copy and pasted the reviews here but they were taken down :(

    You would learn what it is like to live a more self sufficient way of life. Gardening , diy ,maybe something craft related and lots of practical skills

    I have lots of different things to do and will try to make it as interesting as possible for helpers, doing what you are good at. Mostly just fixing up the place, nothing repetitive. If you are creative or artistic, we would love for you to do something interesting around the place. i have some nice paintings, mosaics helpers have done.

    If you have a skill or you want to experiment with something, ie gardening,cob,small building stuff, green woodwooking I have something here that you could practice on in your spare time. I carve spoons, make walking sticks and do a little wood turning on a pole lathe using green wood(unseasoned), if you are interested I could show you that as well.
