Hello! We are Paola and Andrew and we live at a farm, in Beltra, about 20 minutes drive from Sligo town on the West Coast of Ireland and just beside the Atlantic Ocean. When we're not farming we are working in our coffee roastery but we mainly need help with growing vegetables. We have a two polytunnels and a walled garden and we grow vegetable in an organic way. We are looking for help with several task depending on the time of the year: weeding, preparing soil and beds for planting, sowing, harvesting, collecting seaweed and some minor work with animals, wood collection and maintenance of the flower garden.
We also look for help with minding our 18 months old child form time to time - not essential but if you like this kind of job is a good help!
We look forward to hearing from you!

The West of Ireland is rich in heritage (neolithic tombs) and music. We enjoy sharing what we know about the area we live. In addition we are close by the ocean, so you can go for a surf!
Depending on the time of the year: weeding, preparing soil and beds for planting, sowing, harvesting, collecting seaweed and some minor work with animals (mainly a donkey, chickens and dogs), wood collection and maintenance of the flower garden.
We provide accommodation in a fully equipped independent house close to ours.
Since COVID we ask volunteers to prepare their own meals (but we will provide food supplies) and then from time to time we organise some shared meals
There are many interesting and fun things to do around Sligo. Have a look at Strandhill for surfing, Carrowmore, Carrowkeel for neolithic tombs. There are also very nice walks/treks in the area (i.e. Knocknarea mountain).
