    Hi everyone !

    My name is Patrick. I live in a wonderful place surrounded by mountains in Northern Ireland.
    In the past few years, we have created a peaceful garden :

    - Polytunnels and outside beds to plant some delicious vegetables, fruits & herbs.
    - Different gardens where I sowed flowers to feed honeybees and other insects.
    - A total of 3000 native trees planted (probably even more, I lost the count).
    - Fields for my lovely goats.
    - A deluxe house for my 10 hens, to keep them warm and happy.
    I have also two adorable dogs : Tashi & Dolma.

    As you probably understood, I’m a nature lover, full of ideas and skills but I have only 2 hands ;) .
    There is plenty to do, no matter the seasons. I have a lot of projects in the garden, so I like someone who is really interested to learn and help me outside. The tasks are variable depending on the projects.

    I like sharing and teaching people what I learnt through the years: how to care about the garden & nature, carpenter skills, martial art, training, meditation & even more.

    So, if that interests you… don’t hesitate to contact me. I would be happy to welcome you here !
