Canadian Volunteer!

Hi,

I'm an 18 year old Canadian girl living in beautiful rural British Columbia. I work at a local ski mountain, cooking in the lodge and do general maintenance of the slopes. I am going to university next year to study horticulture and adventure tourism, travelling and gaining new experiences beforehand. I am coming to Ireland in May to August 2017 and I'm looking for some friendly hosts to have me work for them.

I love all animals and would prefer a place where I can work with horses. Some of my hobbies include cooking (I have a love for good food), gardening, reading, skiing, kayaking, archery, rugby, and rock climbing. I play guitar and ukulele and would love to bring my music into others' homes. I have an adventurous, open-minded personality and I have a keen interest in learning about almost everything! I would love to have a host who can teach me their skills and tell me things about Ireland. I am a very fast-learner and a hard worker.

Please contact me for more information. I am looking forward to hearing from hosts who are interested. :)

Looking for a host from March in 2017. Japanese guy from rural.

Hello!
My name is Yutaro and I am from Japan. I am 22 years old.

I am looking for a host who can host me for couple of weeks from around 19th March. I am very flexible. I am thinking staying at your place for 3 to 5weeks.

I am traveling Ireland as a wwoofer. I am interested in the lifestyle of Ireland and how people see and think of things around. I am also interested in the Celt. There are some interesting commons between the Celt and Japan.

I like gardening and taking care of animals. I've been wwoofing with gardening and helping a farm with cattle.
I am a tidy person and I do not smoke. I am willing to help you, whenever you need a hand. I like playing with kids too.

I like learning everything! Every experience makes me excited and happy all time. Also, I am quick learner and hard-worker!!

I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you,
Yutaro

Looking for a host for the first two/three weeks of january

Hello I am Michael Tierney, I am 22 years old and soon to graduate university at SUNY New Paltz in New York, where I major in political science and environmental studies. I am very interested in learning more about organic farming practices and I think Ireland is the perfect place to do it, as I have always wanted to go and would love to get back to my Irish roots. I have experience with gardening, cooking, cleaning, trimming, and am a fast learner when it comes to working with my hands and with animals. I am hoping to find someone to take me from early january to middle/end of janury before the semester starts again on the 23rd. I know this comes as pretty short notice but this is the only opportunity I have to travel. I hope you can have me.

Best,
Michael

Wwoofer Available for immediate opening

Hello! I'm looking for an assignment asap as my current wwoofing assignment in Hawaii is almost up. I can be there as soon as you need and for as long as we both agree upon. I do need internet as I am a part time online student but other than that I am flexible, hard working, and am very fond of Ireland. I would love to learn more about dairy farming , specifically cheese making or help out in a hospitality capacity. I love working with animals, have worked with goats and horses in the past, I do ride but it's been a long time haha.
Please let me know if any of this sounds good and I'll be on my way.

UCC International Student

Hi,

My name is Justin and I am a 19-year old US student who will be studying at University College Cork from January 12th- May 12th. I am currently studying Agricultural Engineering and Food Security at my home institution in the US. I am really interested in participating in a WWOOFing experience during a few weekends while I am in Ireland. I am particularly interested in farms that have livestock, but it is more important that the farm is near Cork City and is willing to accept me for short term trips (2-3 days) since I will have classes during the week. I would be happy to return to the same farm for multiple weekends in a row.

I have some agricultural experience from working on an American cattle farm during a previous summer and I have helped my grandfather maintain a 4 acre organic vegetable garden for multiple summers as well. I am also handy with tools and have experience building a barn and multiple sheds.

My ultimate goal is to learn about Irish agriculture and some organic techniques that I can hopefully use when I inherit my grandfather's farm. As a student I am always interested in learning what I can from any farm that is willing to host me. I have been working on a research over the past year about global agricultural economics and I hope that a WWOOFing experience may provide me with further insight into Ireland's role in the global food system.

I hope that there is some farm out there in need of a strong arm and willing to share some knowledge!

Best wishes,

Justin

Christmas alternative!

Hi there

Our veggie garden and walled garden have quietened down quite substantially now! We have the odd job, perhaps some light watering and some tidying up to be done while the soil takes a well earned rest. We do however have a beautiful, large manor house that needs some company and some help over the month of December if you are interested in helping us out? Our new year gardening activities will commence in mid-late January. Please e-mail us if you are interested in enjoying the peace and beauty offered here in our bird sanctuary and gardens.
