Summer 2013 Announcement! JULY 1ST - 10TH WE ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WITH BUILDING EXPERIENCE FOR A BIG BARN PROJECT THAT WE HAVE ... WOULD LOVE SOME HELP WITH IT!!
We are busy creating a dream out here in the west of Ireland! We have a big rambling homemade house, 3 children, mum (Emily), dad (Shivam), 3 living with us full-time helping with building. There are cats, dogs, horses, turtles, ducks, and a pig! We are building a retreat centre in the back garden and are looking for helpers with that - building experience is preferred but you do not necessarily have to be skilled - just willing to learn! Shivam has had many people over the years that he has taught and inspired to build.
Emily is just starting the 'alternative magazine of the West of Ireland' and would like help in the house and with cooking and looking after the children in the afternoons.
If you are an individual and would like to help either with the building or more with the house then please do get in contact. Alternatively if you are a couple this could really suit you. We have had couples before staying with us and this has worked really well!
We are a busy household with many interesting people coming and going. We make fires to keep ourselves warm and believe in playing and working! Most people struggle to leave!
There are photos are of our kitchen and kids and our latest building project in the garden in Ireland. Our schedule during the summer includes a couple of trips to our other project (!) a village of tents in the mountains of Wales founded by Shivam 21 years ago. At both places we attempt to manifest a dream of building and living in community. The Welsh project is well established - the Irish one needs a lot of work. You'd be welcome to hop on the truck as we migrate between both projects. In the wild Welsh mountains reinventing sustainable culture -the other getting our Irish community farm/ meeting house/ seminar venue off the ground.
Either way there's a warm welcome for all willing hands!
