    Hello there! I am a busy mum with a great son who is down syndrome aged 14 and a fab daughter aged 21. I need a buzzing gardener who can help sort my edible forest which I planted few years ago but due to care of my son have sadly neglected...also sorting my loganberry plot which is gone wild...... Help with some small decluttering. with the help of other wonderful workawayers my house is getting sorted..THANK YOU ALL!! it's a great feeling to finally feel I am getting there as it hadsnt been easy as my time was mostly taken up with the caring of my son. He loves to play football and board games

    I am also a practising artist who loves painting and all things made with my hands.
    We live in a beautiful location, close to some amazing beaches in west cork and and a buzzing town but thats about 20km away. Its a quite spot and a bit isolated so suitable for those who like the peace
    My son loves football, music and gets up to all kinds of mischief he loves the beach and all outdoor activities.I have my son for one week and then he goes to his father the following week. it gives me a chance to care for myself! ! and try do nice things and perhaps start a project together! Maybe a mosaic wall!!?
    During the free time I need help with gardening and weeding too. you need to know how to use the strimmer and lawnmower would be a bonus..I need someone who can help me with paintwork also etc...appreciate someone who knows what they are doing and have great inititive to get on with the work. This year I want to prepare some proper vegetable beds, , so some carpentry/building skills is very welcome.. or anything that is practical would be great. Also other projects are painting fences and organising the house sweeping around the house..

    In between all the work I enjoy being in nature, getting out for long walks on the beach and swimming. We also love cooking and eating from my garden. I usually cook most of the time but am a very flexible person by nature, so if this is something you also enjoy, I'm happy for you to help in that area.
    appreciate the help thanking you all. Blessings Jackie
    Looking forward to meeting you
