  • Description

    Description

    We are living on a one acre patch just outside Dublin. Growing food, building shelters, listening to the land, observing our impact, learning what we can with the available resources. Many irons in the fire.. as always.

    Workshop under construction. Forge and sauna are next.. Ducks and bees are in the pipeline, new tunnel or geodome on the drawing board. Accommodation is basic, small room in the big house or mobile home needing to be converted from shed status.. or the pentagon..

    What's on the agenda? Maintaining a tenth acre intensive veggie patch, a quarter acre forest garden, finishing workshop, building sauna, solar/compost shower, compost toilet, lots of compost heaps...rocket stove, cob oven and most pressing.. the hoop-house.

    Between all that, there's plenty of time to wander around the garden, explore the local by-ways and beaches and ancient architecture.. there's a bus stop at the end of the road.. Swords is a ten minute cycle. Airport is a ten minute drive.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The best way to dig into a culture is to take a hold of something and go at it.. North County Dublin is a pretty average looking place, but when you dig in.. there are treasures buried.. castles, stone circles, bridges, burial grounds and country pubs. On a practical level the learning potential is as high as you handle.. biodynamic agriculture, soil health, building with wood and mud.. and iron and stone.. depends on your drawing
