Email us direct if you get no response through helpx email as we can sometimes take a few days when we are busy outside to be on the computer.

Space this season from May 10th- June 10th- unless you are coming to take our permaculture design certificate course- see website- in which case you can come nearer the course times and stay after as a helpxer

Are you interested in Permaculture and Organic vegetables, herbs and fruit, chickens, dogs and cats? Like community connections and courses. We may be the place for you. Please read on....

Established in 2007 Carraig Dúlra is an organic, permaculture designed small-holding focused on research, demonstration and education. In 2009 we also set up the OOOOBY Community Food Group to promote local food.

We have developed a smallholding on a Wicklow hillside as a place people come to visit for communal learning and sharing on courses, open days, events, camps. We have a great of support from local people and are delighted to welcome international volunteers.

WE DO NOT LIVE ON SITE! But someone is there every day.

We grow annual vegetables, herbs and fruit. Work is in the garden areas, lots of weeding, moving compost, mulch, but also help on other on farm projects (water systems, simple natural building cob and wood construction projects etc) a great new wood & cob barn. We also need help on days when we are running courses or events in the camp kitchen.

Volunteers live close to nature (camping) or caravaning - there is no running hot water: boil water on the stove in the sauna or cob bath to wash yourself, do dishes or laundry. There is a nice field kitchen for communal cooking and the barn and greenhouse to hang out in.

Volunteers need to be able to work independently and with local volunteers.

Bring warm clothes, rain gear, strong boots, music, stories, and a sense of humour!

We prefer Help Exchangers who are staying with us to come for at least 2 weeks; as with anything new there is always a learning curve.
