  • Description


    My name is Kevin, age 70, my children are grown up and I have a lovely, private garden of a half an acre in the countryside, which is open to the public. The garden focuses on its water garden, alpines and exotic plants.

    A double room is available for one or two people, who love gardening and would help out in the garden with various jobs, including construction, labelling plants, weeding, maintenance, buying plants, planting plants, painting.

    Also I would be very interested in anyone who has very strong marketing/social media skills.

    Full board provided. We are in rural Ireland, 9 miles south of Limerick city. Please note that there is NO public transport in the immediate area.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'll help people with seeing cultural places of interest in the area e.g. nearby Lough Gur, Ballyhoura hills region, Limerick city with St. John's Castle and other city attractions, Adare village, Bunratty Castle, Cliffs of Moher, Kerry, etc. I'm involved in Irish tourism, i.e. Ballyhoura Tourism, The Gardens of Ireland Trust, etc.
    People, who stay, will benefit greatly from a completely total gardening experience and from meeting Irish and international visitors in an unique boutique garden They will have the opportunity to immerse themselves into the rural Irish atmosphere and lifestyle.

I'd like people to get totally involved with all aspects of gardening, including labelling plants, weeding, maintenance, selecting plants, planting plants, construction, guiding visitors around, etc. I would also love someone who has strong social media skills.
