    looking for people with natural building experience

    Hello workawayers (or is it work a day ers?).

    We are three humans, (32, 70, 1) who have been on this journey together for the past 10 years.
    We have created a place for us and sometimes others, who are looking for the experience of living simply in nature and maybe finding meaning, connection and growing from the challenges of this way of life.

    We try to live one day at a time - we try not to plan ahead! Guess you could call it existentialistic.

    Tasks are dependent on the weather and our priorities.
    At the moment we are intending to upgrade our stone cottage more. We want to use natural building materials as much as possible and affordable . We are looking for people experienced in natural building, hemp, lime, stone. We can also pay if you have a lot of experience.
    Otherwise I am working on a forest garden at the moment, and we have a small vegetable area, that needs attention.
    We also like to have help with cleaning, cooking and maintenance.

    This is an attempt to create an alternative way of living that is based on authenticity, is closer to nature and people's needs, also with the help of technology.
    We are more interested in growing healthy people and healthy human connections than healthy vegetable , but obviously it is also all connected.

    We enjoy the silence here. If you feel you're a refugee of the spirit perhaps this is the place for you for a while... .
    You would also need to be happy to be independent and spend time on your own. This is a place where people can connect in a deep way, can be challenged by the isolation, nature, the weather and each other, create together in a physical and artistic way, share, talk, drink tea, rest, think, feel, be. Because we think it's important for people to communicate and share in a real way, considering the fragmentation of lives and disconnection in this society, we are open to people coming here. The time people stay here is sometimes a year or two, a month or two, a week or two or a day or two, this depends on us , me and you and it depends on the irish weather.

    On a practical note:
    please bring sleeping bags! (In the winter you will need a warm sleeping bag)

    Compost toilet, washing in cabin with basin- simple living in nature with open fire , tea, sharing and time for contemplation
