I'm Mike and I run my farm using organic and permaculture principles . I keep sheep , grow fruit and veg and maintain forestry . I would like some help with these activities. The farm is within walking distance of the heritage town of Kenmare . There are polytunnels , gardens , woods and fields .
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Travelers will learn all about farming , gardening and forestry in this part of the world . I have many years of experience but still like to experiment with different techniques and types of plants .I like to help people improve their English aswell . People will get the opportunity to see lots of beautiful countryside as we are in a very scenic area .I have bikes for the volunteers use .
Volunteers help in the garden and polytunnels doing weeding , planting , harvesting , transplanting and whatever needs doing . They help me in the forest harvesting firewood ( using hand tools only ) and assist whenever the sheep need attention .
I have spare rooms in the house and people share two bathrooms . We take turns doing the cooking / wash up. I provide all the food . We use as much as we can from the farm and I shop for whatever else people like to eat .
I play the Banjo and I have an electric piano and spare guitars here . Musicians are especially welcome.
