We live 3 miles from a seaside resort, Tramore, in the south East. A great place for surfing, kayaking, sailing etc. We have three children 25, 22 and 18, the youngest still at home at the moment. Our problem is we have too much "garden" so we need some help outside with maintenance. I am a basketmaker and my husband is an engineer working from home. Workaways will be welcome to try basketmaking with me and working with willow generally. My husband teaches meditation and is always happy to share what he can.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
There is plenty of outdoor work (weeding the willows, grass cutting etc) but if it's raining there is interior painting to be done. There is always winter firewood to be gathered, sawn, split and stacked. Tree pruning from Autumn onwards.
Converted outhouse with kitchenette and bathroom, shower in main house.
There are the usual activities associated with living on the coast and lots of lovely beaches to explore along a stunning coastline. The Comeragh mountains are a short drive away and worth a visit. There is also plenty of good music to be had along the way. Also watch out for The Promenade Festival here in Tramore July 4th,5th and 6th , Spraoi street festival in Waterford city August Bank Holiday and Surf and Sea Festival in Tramore at the end of Setember.
