Help needed, I need help with my garden and in return will offer bed and board. Work could include helping me thin out trees, chopping wood, cutting grass, clearing undergrowth and various tasks 5 hrs a day, the work is quite manual. The accommodation is in our home and you would have a double bedroom with your own bathroom, wifi internet, and good food. You could also borrow bikes and come fishing with me in the summer months.
The closest shop and pub is about 1.5 miles away and the Aran ferry about 3 miles.
Our property is in a wonderful location with mountain views close to the coast about 45 mins from Galway city.
I am asking for helpers due to my garden being too big for me to manage on my own. Last winter had lots of trees knocked over in storms and I have cleared most of them. Am making rustic garden furniture and chainsaw carvings out of some of the logs and the rest is being chopped for firewood.
Any helpers must love dogs as we have three and they are part of the family.
I like art, fishing, computers and meeting new people, have traveled extensively over the years and lived in Australia for 20 years. My wife and I are originally Scottish we are in our 50,s and both Angie and I are Aussie citizens also. This position would suit mature, self-starting, outdoor type people preferably who have some knowledge of gardening.
The helpers I have had so far have been staying at the house during the week and going touring at the weekends which has worked out well as it gives both the host and helper a break all I ask is that if you are staying at the house that night is that we do 5 hrs work around the place.
My wife and I are early to bed early to rise, if you think this might suit you please feel free to contact me.
