We are stewards of 16.5 acres in North West Roscommon, Ireland. The lands and buildings are being developed to permaculture designs and the 10,000 native woodland trees are the core of a Forest Garden. We do not use chemical sprays and rely instead on manual weed supressing. We are in a remote and peaceful location. The air is clean and sweet. We live in harmony with nature and seek to comprehend and co-operate with the land and all around us.

Volunteers should have a holistic understanding and connection to the land, sea and sky through sharing the Celtic Druid appreciation of Nature. Celtic Druid Temple is a registered charity that promotes awareness of the indigenous spiritual tradition of Pagan Ireland. We host Full Moon ceremonies and celebrate the 8 Solar Festivals. We offer rites of passage services to our members such as Baby Naming, Hand Fasting and Passing Over Ceremonies. We require volunteers who like the outdoors and have some gardening experience, a good pair of boots and a willingness to work in nature. Tasks will include:

Maintenance of temple, herb garden, medieval fort, pathways, hedges and drains.
Fencing repairs, unblocking drains, manual weed supressing (i.e. stand and fold weeds), light bridge building.
Washing up duties after meals are shared by all.
As a volunteer, you will gain an introduction to permaculture principals including:

Gain experience of off grid electricity generation.
Natural reed bed sewerage treatment systems.
Forest gardening principals and techniques.
Learn alternatives to chemical weed control.

Hours & Roster

Approx. 4/5 hours a day. We'll work with the weather we get.
Minimum stay is 3 days usually during the mid-week.
