My name is Laura and I run a busy home with four children in the middle of beautiful rural Ireland. I live in a 3 acre orchard which is currently home to a few outdoor pigs and sheep, and I am also about to embark on a project to get a market garden up and running in a beautiful, ancient walled garden. This is where YOU come in...I am looking for volunteers to help with the transformation of this amazing space and to help expand it into a commercial vegetable/flower business. The person must be fit and enjoy physical work and be prepared to throw his/her hand at many jobs. These will include digging/weeding/strimming/pruning fruit trees, mowing, learning about plants and growing vegetables. Basically I would like somebody who likes being busy and is happy to do whatever task. It is an opportunity to learn as well as offer your own creative ideas to the process. I am looking for a minimum of 4 weeks but would prefer longer stays. My brother and sister in Law run a country house hotel on the same property (different house) which has many helpers staying so there is an opportunity also to meet other helpers. The nearest village is a mile away. It has a good village pub but not much else. Nearest town with bars and restaurants is 20 mins away. Volunteers have the choice of their own chalet/bedroom in the garden or staying within the home. It is a very children friendly house which can mean noisy and you may be required to babysit from time to time. Five hours a day with a meal. Help yourself at other times.
