Organic farm and yoga centre on an offshore island
Near Westport, Ireland for 2 weeks, but only 1 week for skilled workers (carpenter, gardener) +
240 acres farm (some of it planted with trees) on an island off the West coast of Ireland. We have ducks, sheep and horses, as well as the usual cats and dogs. We grow most of our vegetables and fruit in our gardens and polytunnels and in the spring and summer, we produce yoghurt and cheese from sheep's milk. We also run a yoga and meditation retreat centre and training courses in vegetarian cooking, natural horsemanship and in various aspects of sustainable living.
We are looking for people to help us with gardening, farm work, house maintenance, ongoing building projects, cleaning, cooking and the general running of the farm and retreat centre. Non smokers only, preferably people with an active interest in organic food production, self sufficiency, natural horsemanship or sustainable living. An interest in yoga or meditation would also be an advantage, as this is an important part of life at Macalla farm. No teenagers. About 30 hours work / week, most of it outdoor, with one or two days off / week.
We offer in exchange comfortable accommodation, delicious organic vegetarian food, occasional yoga instruction, and this very special island experience. Horse riding is possible for experienced riders but not for beginners.
