  • Description

    Description

    We like a minimum stay of about 1 month
    We have three children living in a restored cottage in rural Donegal. We are currently working on building an eco retreat and restoring five old buildings with original stone work and roofs . We have a large vegetable garden and plan to work on a forest garden and fruit picking orchards. This Autumn 2019 we are building our chicken house , finishing work on the outbuildings and working on our programme for 2020 . We would love anyone with skills in this and also online / marketing experience :)

    Gardening skills is not essential as we can help with training in this. We are also happy to have someone to help with housework. We would be happy to show volunteers around our area and introduce them to Donegal. We live in a very quiet part of the world. Cookery skills would be a bonus as we like to introduce the children to new foods form around the world.
