We live on a small organic farm in North Leitrim about 16kms from Sligo Town, Dromahair and Manorhamilton villages are about 7 kms away. We share our home with 2 dogs, a donkey and a pony so you will need to be comfortable with animals if you want to come here.
We live in a naturally restored cottage and generate all our energy on site. We grow most of our own food and love good food. We are very involved in our local community and are currently working on a project to open an old railway line as a greenway, we are also involved in a local environmental group working to oppose fracking in this area.
We live on the side of Benbo Mountain in a really scenic area, there is really nice walking all round and we have bikes that volunteers can use if they wish.

We live in a friendly rural community and are involved in lots of community based projects so taking part in these projects will give visitors an exposure to local Irish rural life
We have a large outdoor vegetable garden and large polytunnel that require a lot of maintenance like weeding, seed sowing, planting out, harvesting and watering.
We both work full time outside our home so we like people to be able to use their own initiative in relation to doing jobs, working on their own and seeing what needs attention.
We enjoy cooking and also being cooked for!
We have lots of vegetables to eat and love finding out new ways of making meals from them.
We are renovating the loft in our shed as living space and someone with good carpentery skills would be most welcome!
Volunteers will have their own room in our house, bathroom and living accommodation is shared.
This is a very rural with no local transport. There are some bus services from the nearby villages which are about 7Kms away. The area is very beautiful and there are lakes, rivers and mountains nearby which are accessible by bike.
