We have a five bedroom farmhouse on 7 acres of land in the heart of the garden of Ireland. It's beautiful and surrounded by stunning views of the countryside (the sunsets are to die for). The land here is rich with sacred sites and wild walks.
The garden itself is about an acre with a further 6 acres as paddocks/meadow. We need folk for weeding, prunning, planting, mowing, leaf collecting (for mulch in autumn), chainsawing, chopping wood and various other jobs on the land (such as making a nettle compost pit, building a larger compost area, herb collecting and drying etc), general tidying around the land and stables.
Things to do in and around the house include painting, making herbal tinctures and balms, baking sourdough, kombucha brewing and other fruit and flower brews depending on the time of year..
This summer we would like to make an outdoor clay oven, creating an outdoor eating area (the roof timbers are rotten and need replacing and decking needs to be put down), putting the yurt back up after it came down in a bad storm last year, some general maintenance like clearing the gutters, and we really want to paint the external of the house! Longer term projects include planting an area for coppicing, planting some native trees for a small woodland area, creating a vegetable garden ...As you can see there is plenty to do all year round.
