Hello, my name is Josette and I keep a home in Claregalway, outside Galway city (10km or 7 miles), with a large garden including a vegetable patch, polytunnel and raised beds.
I am also a trained yoga instructor and keen gardener.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
I worked in garden centres for several years and would love to exchange skills and ideas around gardening.
I would also be very interested in exchanging thoughts on yoga, mindfulness and spirituality.
I am very involved in the local community and can facilitate links with any groups you would be interested in learning more about, including tidy towns, biodiversity, drama and much more.
I am looking for general help around the house and garden.
The house would include tasks like cleaning and tidying, and the garden would include sowing and tending to vegetables, minor landscaping and general maintenance.
I have a small dog Benji so occasional help with caring for and walking him would be appreciated.
There are blank walls in the garden that would be great for an artist to paint a mural or other piece.
I would ask for a 3-4 hours a day, 4-5 days a week. Depending on your preference this could be adjusted to work more/less hours over fewer/more days.
You will have a double en-suite room with your own living room and kitchen to prepare meals. I can provide groceries and food from the garden.
I have a yoga room that you are very welcome to use.
There are lots of musical instruments in the house including piano, guitar, ukulele and drum kit and you are very welcome to play them.
This is a lovely location to explore the west of Ireland, with Connemara and the Burren both within 90 minutes drive. Galway City is also nearby with public transport available.
I love meeting new people and taking on new projects in the garden and in life, if that sounds like something you would like to be part of please get in touch!
