About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

We have 4.5 acres that needs a lot of work to make it better. We would like someone with a bit of experience in farming (ie; fencing, cutting down trees or splitting timber, but particularly strimming as a lot of our land is overgrown by thorn bushes), general maintenance (ie; painting, carpentry) & also some cleaning around the house. There will be some manual labour involved to help clear branches & things from around the land.
We had a bad fire in our home, 2 years ago. We have since rebuilt afterwards but still need some help with the cosmetics; painting etc..
Our meals are generally meat & 2 veg, but would be very willing to accommodate vegetarians as I was one for a short time.
We have some goats that may require some care, but they're not a lot of work.
We are 2 males, my father & I. We are in the countryside on the outskirts of Dublin City & there is a bus link nearby to get to the city.
Any other information that you'd like, please feel free to message me.
We could accommodate up to 4 people very comfortably, but would like 1 or 2 people to start us off on this project.

We are a Father & Son team, that get on most of the time :-D
My Father is retired & spends his time writing a book, as well as reading & going to an Irish music club at the weekends. He has a great love for the Wicklow mountains. Myself, I'm on a career break from working as a General Manager of a Hotel. I enjoy listening to all types of music, watching some tv & movies, some reading & I'm a bit of an animal lover.
