We are looking for one or max. three friendly people who are either skilled in carpentry/construction , finishing interiors, or are willing to learn. Minimum age 21 years old.

We need help in finishing the interior of a wooden building. (cladding, floors, plaster boards, plastering, painting, electrics, plumbing).

The new wooden frame building, when finished, will serve as a retreat centre (with four bedrooms) and meditation/seminar hall.

Daily work: approx. 7 hours, Sutarday 5 h (depending on the schedule), Sunday: free

Also occasional work in the gardens might be needed.

What we offer: accommodation, organic nutritious/delicious meals, friendship and weekend trips to local sites (weather permitting).

We seek volunteers for a period of a month or longer (occasionally we accept helpers for a short period of a week or two), who like to be part of new innovative projects and who are willing to face the challenge!

As a bonus helpers can join us for our bi-weekly Shaking Yoga sessions if they wish (very invigorating and healing).

Additional option: Those who do want to offer only 3 hours of work per day, can avail of that option, but it means that we will only provide accommodation with self-catering.

Location: We are located in the scenic countryside, surrounded by small forests and hills, just two miles from a lake Lough Gara. The closest airport is in Knock (40 min drive away) We can pick you up from there. Or we can be reached by bus or train, which stops in Boyle.

About ourselves: We are a friendly, passionate and happy couple/family, who tries to live of the land as much as possible. We run a small Holistic Health business as well and are open to create a small community of like-minded, open, caring, positive, and creative people. In the last 9 years we have been working here towards that goal. We created this oasis with great dedication and care, rich with native gardens, organic food production, self-building projects. We are in a process of setting sustainable energy production aka heat-pumps, solar, wind and our favourite one 'ZPE Radiant Energy'from rotating magnetic fields.

Additional Announcement: We seek a dedicated and caring person with some experience in gardening, who would like to take charge of duties involved in maintaining vegetable, fruit and flower gardens for a much longer period (to help with the formation of a sustainable and holistic community). We envisage a trial working period of three months and individual living space in a cute wooden hut.

Thank you for stopping by.
