    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! ONLY looking for help from APRIL to JUNE, then in OCT. Thanks.

    I have a very wild garden. I am hoping to set it up to grow some fruit and vegetables. Set up a beehive, to give the bees somewhere safe. leave some space wild. hopefully build a small glass house from old windows. Set up more water harvesting for garden. have started on some fruit bushes on front lawn. I have a problem with arthritis, so not strong enough to do it all myself. so need help with diging, pruning trees, weeding, clearing, building glass house, maybe some painting. I dont have a lot of knowledge, but learning as I go. would love help for five hours a day, five days.
