We (Hazel&Lucie) have a smallholding of approx 26 acres in Glen of the Downs, Co. Wicklow.

**We are currently looking someone with electrician skills. We need a few outdoor sockets and lights done. Nothing too heavy at all.

Life here is made up of 3 parts; Livery Yard; House Bookings &; Goats Goats Goats!

Yard: Ours is a small DIY livery yard which houses up to 12 horses. The horses are looked after day-to-day by their owners, while we work at bring the yard and fields up to scratch. The land here - fencing, hedging, drainage etc - has been neglected for the last 15 yrs. We're currently building shelters in the fields for the animals for the coming winter.

House Bookings: The main house is our home but is also holiday rental accommodation. We rent it on occasional weekends to cover the cost of works on the property. HelpEx volunteers who come to stay with us will always be provided with comfortable accommodation when the house is rented out. (We usually stay with my (Hazel's) mother, who is lovely).

GOATS, GOATS GOATS: We have recently begun producing organic, goat-friendly goats' milk. We believe in localised food production, not only for obvious environmental reasons but also v. importantly - for animal welfare reasons. We hope to build a local network of organic and animal-friendly produce bartering.
