Small eco friendly, year round retreat,situated on 3 acres. Close to the historical village of Mayo Abbey and 2km from Balla. The site consists of a 3 bed traditional cottage, dairy sheds, hay barn, cottage garden and mature woodland. We are developing the site further, and enhancing the current grounds, encouraging growth of the native flora and fauna. We are looking for a dynamic team and offer applicants retreat accommodation, and vegetarian meals. Pete is an experienced tree surgeon and will be sharing his knowledge of tree care, and providing some practical experience. The November projects will include both indoor and outdoor work. General maintenance of existing cottage and gardens, with plenty of scope for the creation of bio diversity gardens, bat/bird/bee boxes, planting of native wild flowers. We would like to develop the woodland meditation zone, herb garden and raised beds. Some jobs may include timber processing, simple carpentry, painting, baking, subject to skill level and weather conditions. Applicants must be flexible, willing to work as part of a team and individually. Basic English or French would be an advantage, as would be any basic skills in carpentry.
