    Hi Workawayers,
    We are Stephen and Eva.
    We would love somebody to come and help us who has a passion for outdoor life and gardening particularly.
    From May onwards it is very busy both on the farm and in the garden.
    We have an old farm house,a farm and large country garden.Very quiet rural area up a long avenue with lots of trees and fields to explore.
    I grow some plants for sale and also teach floral art and basic gardening.
    I am working on new areas in the garden but need weeding,grass cutting,planting and dividing herbaceous plants emoting leaves and composting.
    Creating a new Fern area.
    Seed sowing and potting of plants.
    We have two Border Collie dogs and five friendly farm cats, bees and 2 Geese who eat the grass in the orchard.We are fully vaccinated for Covid.We would prefer if people already in Ireland could come to help but not essential.
