Hi there, my name is Maggie, I live in Kilcornan County Limerick . I grow wheatgrass and sell it at the weekly market in Limerick city every Saturday. I live in an old country farm house with acres of land. I live with my sister Carol and my two children, Ellie who is sixteen and Oliver who is thirteen. Both at our local school where I help out and have set up a garden and teach kids how to grow. We have a friendly sheepdog called Jessie who lives inside the house with us. I also have a 4 hens and a rooster called ringo.
I take on gardening jobs and maintain the garden at the a hotel in Limerick.
I love gardening and growing fruit and vegetables and eating fresh daily.
We love cycling and there's a forest park near us. Also there is also an animal farm near us. There is a leisure centre for swim or sauna. My brother runs the family farm with dry stock cattle and a couple of donkeys. We also have apple trees. We are a 4 km cycle from the Shannon estuary. I would love some help and company in our house and garden. I'm the wheatgrass fairy.
Looking forward to meeting new friends and learning more
