  • Description


    looking for someone NOW :)
    Please send me a personal message and i prefer to spend my time with people i click with. now that that is out of the way i hope this finds you happy and well,
    i don't plan that far ahead so last minute works well for me and an immediate start would be ideal from the start of June.
    i live in a small cottage in the heart of Ireland and try to grow as much of my own food as possible and live a low-impact simple kind of life on 1.5 acres. no tv ,no fridge and i have a compost loo :)
    The nearest village is about 1 km away, it has 1 shop and 3 pubs.
    i eat mainly vegetarian and i can eat close to vegan, if the helper chooses and it makes cooking easier.
    but i am more interested in eating what comes from my site as opposed to from the shop.
    i studied Permaculture on a two years in kinsale a few years back and got my hands on this old cottage and have implemented some aspects around the place, have done lots of renovation changes to the place giving it a bit of a rustic feel.
    my ex partner "Claudia" and i have a little 3 year old girl and my daughter "Alma" stays with me a few nights a week, Claudia will be around from time to time also as we still grow food together here ,
    Main tasks here at the moment include getting the garden ready,for winter, berry picking, as well as help out with whatever is going on at the time.I looking for helpers that are interested in nature and the way i live have a open mind It's important for me that you are enthusiastic and motivated and a pleasure to be around. i want to give helpers a hug when we say goodbye and say to myself "that was a lovely experience" not "glad their gone"

    If you are interested feel free to ask any questions :) everything is flexible,
    may you be well and may you be happy :)

    ps: i am new enough to this site but have hosted probably 20 plus volunteers.
    i copy and pasted the reviews here but they were taken down :(

    We have lots of different things to do and will try to make it as interesting as possible for helpers, doing what you are good at. Mostly just fixing up the place, nothing repetitive. If you are creative or artistic, we would love for you to do something interesting around the place. i have some nice paintings, mosaics helpers have done.

    If you have a skill or you want to experiment with something, ie gardening,cob,small building stuff, green woodwooking I have something here that you could practice on in your spare time. I carve spoons, make walking sticks and do a little wood turning on a pole lathe using green wood(unseasoned), if you are interested I could show you that as well.
