Im looking for a hand or two with devloping my small off grid project, Im a 31yr old male based in very scenic West Cork in Ireland ,on a half acre of land.. 16km from the town of Bantry,, and just 2 hours from Cork City, its the most scenic stunning part of Ireland , My land is 6km from the nearest bus route..
My project is turning waterloged bog land into fertile rich woodland and gardens , by planting trees and vegetable patches and making ponds,drains etc.., the nearest shop is 6km away, my location is in the mountains a few miles from the coast, its a very special ancient place and i can only accept people who are enthusiastic and want to learn and have a love for the land and nature..i am off grid , and use the power of the sun and collect water that falls from the sky, i dont drive so cycling walking and hitching is the way to find me
This is a good place for people who like it rustic and close to nature
I am still learning as i go ,so i want to learn from others too
Helping hours would be a few hours a day for 4 or 5 days , and that will be for no pay , but will include 3 meals a day and snacks, alcohol and accomadation.. no stays longer than 1 or 2 weeeks.
help is always appreciated towards making it a sustainable fertile haven :)
