    Description

    On the rural Sheep's Head Peninsular - on a scenic walking route and the 'Wild Atlantic Way'. i have a organic vegetable garden, fruit bushes and chickens. i particularly need help at harvest time - picking blackcurrants and raspberries. i have a separate cabin in a small field which needs some tlc. taming the brambles and creating a stone path. workaways can stay in the cabin and be a bit independant if they wish - or i have spare rooms in the house. approximately 4 miles from Bantry which is the main town and has a market every friday.
    This is only a private small garden - not a business!

    Being a coastal region being here would enhance knowledge of the Irish physical geography and unique rural situation. horticultural skills based on organic principles. experience the local flora and fauna. meet local people at the weekly market and hear Irish music.

    either in the house - own room; or in the cabin for more independence. we can cook together taking turns or separately if in the cabin. i'm flexible on this.
