I live in West Cork, Ireland 3 km from the sea,overlooking a river in a very scenic area. I have 5 in family all of whom have left home and may visit occasionally at weekends. I need help with gardening in my 2 polytunnels and outdoors (0.5 hect) also I wish to develop my vegetable and herb growing and garden more using the principles of permaculture.I welcome your ideas and imagination from previous experience in gardening. I am relaxed and observant and I allow some crops to self seed. Seed saving is also important to me. Woodworking and maintenance skills appreciated as i have decided to build a composting toilet. Also there are always more seeds to be planted for flowers and vegetables.As you may know weeding is always on the list.You will be working along with me mostly.Once a week I take part in a "meitheal" or working group, where 5 or 6 gardeners visit each others garden in turn one morning a week to work together on a project. Also I am involved with a local Community Orchard and Grow It Yourself (GIY) Ireland, whose aim is to help people to grow some of their own food.You will have the use of a bicycle and maybe I can borrow another one. We will visit some local beaches and other worthwhile places like fairy forts and stone circles. Accommodation is in my home,where you will have your own room and a shared shower.We love to share both food and its preparation.I welcome help for a 2 week stay from mid September 2015. I look forward to hearing from you.Marian
