Summer Volunteers to help our Garden Team

Co-Worker / Vocational

Minimum Age 18

Duration Minimum 3 months

We are seeking volunteers to help us in our large organic fruit and vegetable garden this summer, starting at the beginning of May (although it would also be possible to start at the beginning of June or July) ideally staying for two or three months, but not longer.

In the Summer the garden work in Ballytobin intensifies and since there is a lot more to be done, we need extra help - would this interest you? You would work full time in our garden, as a member of our garden team, and under the guidance of our head gardener. The team also includes members who have special needs, so it is a fully integrated team. Your day's work would start at approximately 09:15 in the garden, and then continue until the evening with a break for lunch. You would live with us in one of our 'life-sharing' house communities, where we live together with people who have disabilties, some quite profound, and you would have a direct experience of Camphill's life and work because of this, even though you would not play a role in the care-work that we do. There will be extra tasks too, for sure, such as helping to make breakfast in your house community, or watering the vegetable plants on a Sunday, when the gardener is off.

Each Saturday you would be free, and would receive some pocket money to spend on this day off - there are many nice things to do and see in the Kilkenny area.

An enthusiasm for garden work, and for working hard as part of a team, are essential.



Enthusiasm for outdoors work, and for hard work!

A good level of English

The ability to listen and carry out the Gardener's instructions

The ability to work as part of a team
