Skills I Want to Learn: Organic Practices, Permaculture/Biodynamics, Biodynamics practices and techniques
I hope to learn new skills and see how the local people in Australia live! I think especially nowadays our generation learns a lot of theoretical things in uni and we don’t really know how to built things with our hands any more. I really appreciate any kind of skill from gardening to building something. I also love animals, so would enjoy working with them too!

I’ve beet to Australia twice in 2018 and 2019 with my family. We didn’t have an opportunity to go to a winery but we tried so many kinds of Australian wines. And that experience gave me interest of how to make wine and what the differences between wines. Now, my deep passion for nature, agriculture, and wine has given me a strong desire to immerse myself in the world of Australian winemaking. At the age of 29, this might be my last opportunity to work abroad and learn about winemaking and the differences between Japanese agriculture and that of other countries. There are three conditions I prefer when looking for a job, ① related to wine, ② organic, ③ working not just as one of the foreign workers, but as a close member like family. Even when I looked for a job on my own, it was very difficult to find the ideal job. However, I found WWOOF while researching how to work at an organic farm in Australia in Japanese and English. I was so surprised because WWOOF is exactly what I was looking for! Australia and Japan have four seasons and quite similar climates. Through WWOOF experience, I would be glad to learn wine making, and also, learn more about Australian people and cultures by living with them. My dream is to grow grapes myself in my future from a perspective that I couldn't see just by growing them in Japan.

Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: Separate Building, Caravan, Tent, BYO Accommodation
PLEASE NOTE: If you want a quick response from us please message us via Whatsapp a NOT using the WWOOF website message function. Byron Rainbow Farm is located in beautiful Brunswick Heads in Byron Bay Shire, NSW. We are a 25 hectare property with various farm activities including syntropic agro-forestry, bananas, dragon-fruit orchards, chicken and duck raising, native plantation and bush regeneration. We are 5 minutes by car from the beaches at Brunswick Heads or 5 minutes to the shops in Mullumbimby, or 15 minutes from Byron Bay itself. We only expect you to volunteer on the farm 4.25 hours per day for five days per week (Monday to Friday) to a maximum of 21.25 hours. Work will be between 6.45am - 11:20am each weekday in summer or 7.45am - 12.20pm in winter with one 20 min break. We also expect you to spend an additional 1 - 2 hours each day keeping the volunteer accommodation area clean and tidy (the quicker you get this done the sooner you can have time for yourself). That means you will have every afternoon and all the weekends to spend getting to know the wonderful Byron Shire.  In return you will be provided shared accommodation in the volunteer accommodation and will also be provided food for you to eat. You will have access to the accommodation buildings and the relaxation/activities building, shared shower, shared kitchen and shared toilet. We can accommodate up to eight volunteers at a time in six single beds and two double beds. You will be volunteering with other volunteers as well as seasonal farm workers who will be supervising you each day. We have around 15 adults and around 10 children that live and work on our farm along with our wonderful volunteers.  Each morning you will work with different members of our farm community on different projects and jobs around the farm.  All work and activities are overseen by our farm manager Dave. When doing farm work farm volunteers are supervised by our seasonal farm workers or farm manager at all times. We have shared bikes for you to use if you do not have your own transport so you can ride into Brunswick Heads or Mullumbimby. We are able to pick volunteers up and drop them off at the bus stations at Byron Bay, Brunswick Heads, Mullumbimby or "Uncle Toms Pies". We are able to sponsor Wwoofers for their second or third year working holiday visa by working three months or six months on our farm as we are in a declared bushfire and flood disaster area.

I love traveling and the best part is the people you meet and connections you build while gaining perspective. I think Wwoof is a great platform that allows people from all around the world to connect and gain experience working on farms and be able to learn from each other. I hope to learn more about alternative living and acquire hands on experience working on organic farms.

The first time I heard about WWOOFing was from a friend of mine I met during the Erasmus student exchange. He explained it briefly to me and I was immediately drawn to the idea of doing it myself. The possibility of staying abroad completely immersed in a different culture, working on a farm, as well learning about the various methods of organic farming directly from experienced hosts. It sounded absolutely perfect! The part that I love the most about visiting other countries is getting to meet new people, learn about their culture, experiences and everyday lives. I am a student and I try to use every opportunity that we, as young people have, to learn about the world. That is why WWOOFing seems like a perfect choice for me! As a member of the younger generation worrying about the environment I know that broadening our horizons on the more eco-friendly methods of living our lives is crucial, as climate change effects impact us more and more every year. Helping eco-conscious and organic farmers feels like the best way to learn and thus make more conscious choices throughout the rest of my life. As I have written before – nature is very important to me - most of my hobbies are inherently connected to it. That is why I also want to learn how to be able to help preserve it. I am also a very enthusiastic person who is always up for a new challenge and gaining new skills.

The reason I joined WWOOF is because I love interacting with animals. I have experienced volunteering as a universities representative for helping farming, plating, pick-up fruits, and feeding animals during this year fall break. 4days of experiencing these agricultural time of helping, I felt exciting and charming because I was able to meet different students who came from different universities. The time of cooperating together by one team working outside and the other team cooking inside, we had lots of fun helping and supporting each other. I felt that WWOOF is an exact program for me because I love to interact with people and moreover, since my major is biology and I am interested in studying about the Ministry of Food and Drug Saftety as well as handling animals, I wanted to learn about animal and agricultural works. It best fits me!! I am still a university student who wants to experience and explore the nature and the culture from the other countries and with this program of WWOOF, I felt like I can learn about this world!

I am on a journey to connect with the planet, people, and explore my relationship to nature. I view WWOOFing as an experience that would not only contribute to my growth and awareness as an individual, but allow me to assist a family or community through a practice that I am passionate about and want to learn more about. Specifically, I am curious about permaculture farming practices as well as understanding the extent to which the relationship that the Aboriginal people had with the land is still recognized in farming practices today. By previously WWOOFing, immersing myself in documentaries, briefly volunteering at food pantries, and talking to local farmers, I hold a consciousness of the benefits that result from ensuring that all people have access to nutritious food; this does not just include those pertaining to health but also in relation to the ability that food has to foster community. Ultimately, I aspire for a meaningful experience that will challenge my values and perspectives on food/farming as well as the possible ways to live both a sustainable and consciousness life.

I joined WWOOF because I feel the need to give back to this land by caring for it, through gardening or in whichever way possible. I’d love to learn more about living in community and spend time closer to nature. I’ve been wanting to WWOOF for a while, but I feel like now is the time!
