Large backyard garden. I have fruit trees, vegie beds, bee hive and chooks. My house is in walking distance to shopping centre, bus, leisure centre and library. I have some internet access, and bedroom has shower and basin attached. I volunteer in the Grovedale Community Garden(it has a facebook page); in the Grovedale Community Orchard(also has a facebook page); and buy and help with the Grovedale Veggie Box which supplies me with fresh, organic vegetables(also facebook page). From all these places I learn more about how to sustainably garden and look after my chickens.

I'm turning my life towards a healthier path as I don't drink or smoke anymore and trying to be vegetarian. So learning about the farm lifestyle and and knowing what I could achieve learning from the hosts itself is exciting for me and a great place to start. I'd also like to have my own farm one day. That'll be ideal.

I have come to WWOOF in hopes to engage directly with positive ecology; an interest that is not limited to one form of practice. Through engagement with prominent and emerging farming practices, I hope to discover more techniques and strategies which may bring them together. I hope to find ways of balancing cash crop seasons with cover crops and rotational grazing. I hope to find ways of practising agroforestry with high biodiversity. I wish to learn about all aspects of farming; from the hunter-gather and permaculture skills from which we began, to the organic bio-dynamic agroforests to which we will go.

I joined WWOOF because I think it's a good way to get much new experiences, getting connected to people, learn a lot about Australia and hopefully about myself. It is great to help people with some work and get accommodation and food. And to be honest it´s nice if you have not that much money to travel.

Even though I know exactly what kind of job I want to do, I don’t feel ready to start an independent working life in a city as big as Paris yet. I grew up in the suburbs, surrounded by nature, quietness and a breathable air. When I was a kid, I used to scout with my friends during week-ends and summer holidays. We camped and hiked in the forests and the mountains, crossed small rivers, farms or fields as far as the eye could see. Discovery, adventure, nature, surpassing oneself, those are the words that truly define my scout experience. I always knew I'd need to go back to those kinds of experience in the future. So here I am, doing a gap year between my last two final years of study so I could experience wwoofing in Australia. It’s an opportunity for me to take a break from this predefined pattern of student and professional life in order to reflect and to refocus on what I'm ready to do. Discovering Australia has always been one of my dreams. I look forward to arriving in this country with so many beautiful diverse landscapes. I believe that wwoofing is the best way to be fully immersed in Australian life and culture, meet new people and improve my English.

My true passion has always been with animals and nature. Being with and taking care of animals is what instantly reloads me with energy and makes me truly happy. Back in Sweden I will eventually start my education to become a vet nurse. Being outside in nature is also something that I always loved, wether it is an adventure, such as hiking, climbing, diving or sailing; or simply just working outside, I always loved it. Anyway, right now things are not as they used to be for any of us. I'm still here in Australia trying to find a place to stay and a job anywhere in New South Wales. I've mainly been working as a waitress in Sydney these couple of months, but with that not being an option anymore I'm hoping to find work as a volunteer on a farm for a while. I've been in a house on my boyfriends parents farm in central west New South Wales quarantining for 2 weeks, so now I confidently seek for a place that needs extra help. Hope to see you guys soon!

We had great experiences wwoofing in New Zealand. As we love working outside and learning about farming, we consider wwoofing as a perfect way of working for food and accomodation.

City/Town: Bornholm
Farming Methods: Biodynamic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home, Caravan
We are gradually restoring a neglected farm, a beautiful 180 acres bordering NP and close to beaches. Low-tech hard work & BD preparations are slowly producing results on our pastures. Our animals are part of the family - Josephine the milking cow, a small beef herd, chooks, ducks & sometimes pigs. Our vegie garden is established, the orchard in the making. Most of our food is produced on the farm, but fishing trips supplement our diet, which is meaty, tasty & healthy. Work incl work in pastures, weeding, raking, fencing, help in vegie garden & orchard, feeding animals and building projects. Own transport preferable to take advantage of the beautiful surrounding area. Caravan accom for a single or a couple. No children. Meat-based meals. Non-smokers only. Negotiable stays after first few days. Cannot take WWOOFers during winter.

All Foods Farm is situated in Buffalo, South Gippsland , Victoria. The farm has been operating since 2004 and is run on sustainable agriculture and permaculture principles, with emphasis on organically grown, fresh produce. As sustainable property we grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, mostly as older styles and heritage varieties. With a mixed orchard of apples, pears, stone fruits and berries we supply our customers with fresh, seasonal produce that they rarely get to experience when shopping at any large scale supermarket. In the picking season for fruit we attend local Farmers markets. Our current project is establishing our shop frontage directly from the property.  We are a bit more than a hobby farm, but not quite  a commercial farm.

We decided to join WWOOF as a means for contributing towards the lives and livlihoods of farmers in rural communities. We are in a unique position where we can offer our time and skills and thereby hopefully instil a deeper love and respect for our country and its diverse environment in the hearts and hands of our sons.

We joined wwoofing because we wanted to explore diverse cultures, learn more about farming, and meet some new people along the way. We think this experience will give us a good background and foundation for when we will start up our own farm. We also both have a passion for traveling, so this seemed like a great opportunity for us.

I joined WWOOF through American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS) and I am interested in learning about life on Australian organic and permaculture farms and learning about growing and producing organically. I am hard working and willing to learn.

We are an easy going couple who enjoy the great outdoors, mostly sunsets going down over the ocean. We travelled around Australia many moons ago and have ended up in a place we did not expect but dreamed of. We love spending time with our 2 dogs (Labrador's) and coming up with many types of different recycling based projects to make Ecostay's a unique place to visit! We are lucky enough to enjoy our own private beach and are constantly amazed at the ever changing sunsets over the horizon! We are environmentally conscious and are creating 1 bedroom self contained 'up cycled' cottages which provide privacy and a total escape from the real world. You can expect to hear the sound of the waves and the beautiful star covered sky at night. It is so great to have people come from all over the world to come and visit our place, we have both travelled extensively over the years and believe we have a place that is very unique. For some reason its only recently occurred to me to invite woofers here..based on some amazing experiences we had on our own travels.  Life here is not hectic. Work a bit (home brew on the boil) and just enjoying nature! We do not take life seriously and welcome people to say who share the same ideas. We have 3 cottages on the property that we rent out, so pending availability and who comes along we can make things work hopefully.
