    Description

    Padhraig and Catriona, our three dogs , seven cats and our lovely chickens run a small organic farm in Connemara. Oughterard Co. Galway Ireland.
    We grow lots of salad and general vegetables being very carefull to protect the environment.
    We need general help preparing the ground for the new years crops. The work varies quite a bit as the seasons change.
    We are hoping to get couples that could stay for a minimum of one month.
    We provide accommodation in a self contained mobile home near our house. Wood stove, electric shower and wifi. plus lots of fresh food right outside your door. I will do my best to teach as much as I know in relation to my work.
    Oughterard is located 20 miles from Galway with many amazing attractions within easy access, Connemara ...with so much to see. The Aran Islands, Galway Town - a bustling university town full of lots of music and cultural events. The famous Cliffs of Moher just 2 hours away..
    Oughterard itself is a beautiful place on the shores of lough Corrib famous for its fishing.
    While we are close to all these places,where we live is amazingly peaceful.
    We would be gracious to accept help as soon as possible.
    Padhraig and Catriona

    Early in the season we will be preparing beds for planting and sowing. We will be transplanting later and by may june I hope to start harvesting early crops of spinnach and salad. It is hard to put it all into a few sentences but the work will change by the week and weather.
