    Hi, I have sold my small Quinta in the Algarve and am now in Southwest Ireland, Kerry to be exact. I am looking for a person who is experienced in organic gardening and has building skills as I would like to build a small shed/studio in my garden out of pallets. I need help in making raised beds (two ) for my organic veggie garden . I also would like to have some old gardens cleared to make way for shrubs and plants and fruit trees I plan to plant soon. There are a few things left to help with in the house , mainly painting some closets . Thank you

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am American / English and an artist working in a few different mediums. I love to cook and also like to learn from the workawayers what their favourite dishes are so they can cook as well if they like. I can teach a few skills if they would like to learn how to mosaic and paint .

    i Have a lovely two bedroom cottage with two bathrooms. I just renovated the old kitchen and it now looks beautiful and filled with light. There is a small livingroom with a wood burning stove which makes the room really inviting and cosy .

    What else ...

    Since I have just moved here I don’t have a lot of knowledge of the area yet , but I am only a few miles from the nearest village which is very colourful and friendly , lots of pubs and shops and the nicest friendliest people you could ask for. I am not sure if there is a Resource Centre which offer various classes and yoga , keep fit ,a hairdresser even ! There are busses to the nearest town of Kenmare and further away, Killarney . Wonderful for walking in my area and fabulous beaches for swimming and Nature trails . I live on the Wild Atlantic Way and also right down the road is a place where there is no light pollution so you see the night sky very clearly.
