I'm Elizabeth and recently I have had some helpX-ers working with me in restoring the gardens, back and front. Current work-in-progress is a carpentry job - constructing a 'laundry shelter' so I can dry my clothes outdoors. Gardening work is now mostly maintenance - deadheading and weeding, watering and feeding.Fuchsia collection has to be 'bedded down' for winter. Autumn leaves are still being collected. There is now an on-going task of keeping the deck-surface treated.
Other carpentry tasks are still outstanding.
Finally, I need small walls built and plastered around the fuchsia beds. This work is weather-dependent and will have to be done mid-winter before the fuchsia's start to grow again in late February

The accommodation I offer is a room, with TV and internet, and I would like you to work an average of 4 hours a day (28 hours over the week) Since some work is outdoors I need a person who is flexible depending on the weather. My helper will have taken English lessons and will have experience in understanding and speaking simple English. Please let me know how long you attended classes.
I will provide your food, but since I am a notoriously poor cook, I will ask you to cook for yourselves. I do not expect you to cook for me but if you wish to share what you cook for yourself, that would be very nice for me.
I would welcome a helper for a stay of one or two weeks
I live outside Dublin, a 45 minute bus journey from Dublin city centre, and yet within walking distance of the countryside at Bohernabreena.
Looking forward to meeting you.
