We have a smallholding in County Kildare with an acre of completely untamed garden and several acres of peatland. So far we have done some filling and some drainage and put in a shelter belt of trees. We have a commitment to sustainable living. We are using recycled materials for wall building, paving etc and our plan is to turn the main plot into an organic garden with an adjoining area for specific acid soil plants. The remainder will be preserved as perpetual raised bogland with its natural flora. We need very able-bodied help to assist with clearing vegetation, and other general work and building.

Our Dublin site also requires help with cleaning and maintenance of buildings, grounds, vehicles and equipment, gardening, yard work, dealing with callers, housework and help with catering. We provide transport between the accommodation and the smallholding. We welcome applications from individual volunteers or two friends or brothers who wish to travel together.
Handyman or mechanical skills would be a definite advantage, as would a driving-licence. However, you are still welcome without these abilities.

We need a commitment for work on the smallholding or at the accommodation as needed for 4 hours per day except Sunday. In return we offer accommodation close to transport for the city centre.

For the attention of volunteers who need to do a fulltime stage abroad to fulfill the requirements of their vocational or academic course:
we are willing to let you combine your homestay with a fulltime stage so long as your school agrees to the stage content as specified by us, which is essentially a houshold post with the emphasis on practical duties, cultural experience and learning English.There are additional benefits for stagaires.
