Well our latest WWOOFer left (oh the heart break) today a wonderful American woman, she was with us two weeks and we had a great time working together, she didn't mind weeding at all, she was not one of the 'Walmart people' for sure!
If you have a garden or are doing things on your plot and are finding time short, the answer is WWOOFers. Your account with WWOOF Ireland will last 12 months and costs €30ish, well worth it. http://www.wwoof.ie/
This last 12 months has been so enjoyable and productive, we only had two WWOOFs that didn't come up to muster, one Irish guy who stayed one night and then ran away-the concept of such freedom freaked him I think, and a woman from the Netherlands, who was a great worker and really nice, but had boy friend complications-nuff said! The rest-exceptional human beings!
