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.

Help around the house
I live in a small 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 a 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 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.
there is a double bedroom, along with two singles. own toilet. shared shower/bath room. separate sitting room if wanted. hot spot wifi, netflix. would do most of cooking but may ask you to cook your own occassionally.
bus stop 2 kms away, to Dublin, 40 mins, 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, live gigs, small festivals, visits from friends.
