  • Description


    I am a young 26 year old lad from the south of Ireland.
    I have recently returned home from travelling all over Asian and Australia to my father's farm in Millstreet County Cork.
    I welcome help in getting a few projects off the ground and a little help around the farm.
    Projects include making a Campsite and outdoor gym in the forest using natural building techniques, general cleaning and maintenance of our 160 year old home.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The house, my father and I , our 4 legged happy family members are as Irish as Guinness.
    We love to chat and exchange our cultures. Both of us have travelled the globe over many decades, our passion is the strange and exotic that this world has to offer.

    For the volunteers that do join us, they will be apart of our little family, we will go on adventures on our days off. We will do these projects but we will also chill out with a hot whiskey around a fire in the evenings and cooking happy hippie veggie dinners.

    I am a very outdoorsy active young fellow so if ye are too that would be ideal.
