My name is Gareth, I live with my partner Karen and our beautiful daughter Lily who is 2. We live in Carrickmacross Monaghan. We are building a permaculture / regenerative agriculture space and a space for people to regenerate. We are very interested in building a community. We would love to welcome people to come and stay for a minimum of 6 weeks, but we are open to others also.
We have both worked all over the world and love meeting people from different cultures. If you have any other question just ask.
Help with Eco Projects
The area is very rural so you have the beneifit of peace and quiet. But we just one and a half hours north of Dublin. Regular bus service I commute 3 days a week if you want to visit Dublin. There is a famous Irish poet from very near called Patrick Kavanagh if you are interested in poetry.
You will learn about permaculture and natural design. Karen is a yoga teacher and am sure you could get a lesson or two.
We are building a food forest and a vegetable garden so this would be the main focus of the help. The area is 1.5 acres. We have chickens and alpacas.
We live in an old farm house that we have done up. The property is 3 acres altogether. You will stay in the house with us. You will have a spacious room with an ensuite and shower.
