I live alone, in the heart of the Boyne Valley. I Love to meet new folk. I Have a fairly wild garden, with grand plans on how to make it a little paradise! to do that I will need help. So I am hoping there are some folk out there who love to garden, create , are not afraid of hard work. in exchange for board and lodging. in a friendly, creative home. with plenty of interesting places nearby to explore. Looking forward to meeting you!.. .mile buichois.
Please see calender for availibility, and note ,1 to 2 week visit is my preference, thanks.

I live in a small, very quiet, estate of houses, with a large back garden. in the heart of the boyne valley. near Tara, seat of the high kings. the wealth of ancient history nearby is immense, Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth. Lough Crew, Trim Castle etc etc. traditional music once a week up the road. Dublin an hour bus ride away. I have a working knowledge of the Irish language. I have studied homeopathy and reflexology.
I have a very wild garden. I am growing some fruit and vegetables. Polytunnel is in place. I would like to set up a beehive, to give the bees somewhere safe. Set up more water harvesting for garden. I have fruit bushes on front lawn. I have a problem with arthritis, so not strong enough to do it all myself. so need help with digging, pruning trees, weeding, clearing, maybe some painting. The main jobs are now... Laying small patio. Erecting a cover over the bbq and hot tub... Building a raised bed, like the one in the photos.
I don't have a lot of knowledge, but learning as I go. would love help for five hours a day, five days.
there is a double bedroom, along with two singles. own toilet. shared shower/bath room. separate sitting room if wanted. hot spot wifi, (so only available , when I am home), netflix. I will provide food and cook, but will ask you to cook for yourselves also..and clean up after meals.
bus stop 2 kms away, to Dublin, 1 hour, and airport. will collect from bus. Push bike available. pub/shop up road, very cozy Irish pub 2kms. will bring you to see sights, maybe a music gig . river/woodland walks short drive away, I live a quiet enough life. love nature, foraging, live gigs, small festivals, visits from friends.
