I joined WWOOF Australia because I’m interested in helping people in return for learning new skills and making new connections, I did some WWOOFing whilst I lived in NZ and it made the experience of living in a new country much easier to adjust to and I credit that to the friendly like minded people I met thru WWOOfing and I’m hoping to get much the same whilst traveling around Australia.

I will travel to Australia in summer and want to stay for a year. During this period of time I would like to get expierenced in farming and work life in general. Moreover, I would be happy to learn new things about Australian culture and life and visit the countryside.

Skills I Want to Learn: Regenerative Agriculture
In 2022 I will be embarking on a PhD in Regenerative Agriculture - because my heart has been called to the land, and I desire to not only look at systems change to help restore ecologies, and look at how farmers are practising and sharing their knowledge, but I also want to grow my practical skills by getting my hands dirty and actually understanding how different scaled farms operate. That's where you come in! I can't wait to be part of your farm / property for a while. 🙂

Hello! It's a great time of year up at our place! We are a family of four - Todd, Kate, Wimitja (15) and Kinyin (11). We are in the Adelaide Hills but only 15 - 20 minutes from the city center. Good access by public transport. Non smokers only. It is green and beautiful here with loads of great walks, views and animals to see. We are close to the city and a bus route but in the hills with koalas and kangaroos around... We have raised traditional Mongolian yurt which you can sleep in if you like - it is BEAUTIFUL and wwoofers so far have loved it!  We are working on all the associated projects - making woven fences out if vine prunings, making paths, drainage, planting natives. We have been WWOOF hosting for many years now and really enjoy sharing life with people from all around the world. Stories, food, work, laughs and all that comes in between. We want to enjoy hosting you and we want you to enjoy being here! We work on our 3 1/2 acre property with animals, fruit trees, loads of berries, native bush and other garden areas. We are slowly working to make the land and garden more productive and the bush free from ferals. Todd works with homeless people in the city of Adelaide which is 20 minutes away or 1 hour by bike. Kate is a teacher who works with children and young families in Steiner or Waldorf Education from our property running Steiner Nature Playgroups. Our older son breeds chickens and our younger son loves his pet rabbits. Lacey the dog will love you for ever if you throw the ball for her! We enjoy cooking, gardening, preserving food, slow cooking and spending time as a family. We value community and believe in being part of something bigger than ourselves. We love travel but don't do as much these days and hosting WWOOFers is a way to bring bits and pieces of the world alive in our every day life. If you would like to come and spend time with us we prefer stays of one week - then negotiable. We enjoy people who are self motivated and looking to enjoy their days. We love it if you have great skills but are also fine if you are pretty new to it all but are happy to learn. Our home is a place for an open mind and complete respect for each person. No drugs, no smoking and no excessive drinking - let's work, learn and enjoy the days together. Everyone helps with cleaning up after meals and preparing food - your gender is irrelevant! If you are interested in gardening, cooking, permaculture, preserving food, community, Steiner or Waldorf education, telling stories and enjoying good food - this could be for you! The work here is a mix of home and garden and is seasonally dependent - give us a call to see what is happening at the moment. A typical day might include mulching, pruning, weeding, collecting stones for wall building or weaving sticks into fences, planting, preserving seasonal fruit and veg, cleaning and mending in and around the house, etc. We like to provide a variety of jobs and also work to people's skill set. We would love to host an electrician or plumber or builder!!! We limit our screen use but there is wifi available in the house. Our family prefers to enjoy people and life first hand! We enjoy eating together and telling stories and laughing over the meal. We love it when visitors want to cook a meal or two using a recipe from their family or home. We eat a small amount of meat but are most happy to cater for vegetarians as Kate until recently was vego! There is a wealth of things to do around our place in free time - there is a bus to the city to do city based things but we are also close to Mount Lofty, Cleland Wildlife park and our house 5 minutes walk to the Heysen Trail. You can regularly see kangaroos and koalas in the bush around our property and we back onto Horsnell Gully National Park. There is lots of good bush walking around. We look for visitors to work 5 hours a day and to negotiate days off in balance with this. We all share preparing for meals and cleaning up afterwards. Visitors have their own private room and use of the main bathroom (we have an ensuite for us). We are on tank water and solar heating so visitors must be mindful of water usage. No smokers at all.

I want to be useful and productive and not destroy the Planet. WWOOF is a perfect place for me to volunteer. To get back to my philosophy of "small is beautiful" lifestyle and community. I want to visit scenic, different locations where I've never been. Where WWOOF Hosts will have interesting and sustainable projects. Variety is the spice of (my) life. Whilst I'm not skilled in a lot of the farming techniques that WWOOF Hosts will be using, I'm happy to learn. I'm not afraid of hard work or long hours. I'm average strength and fitness. I spent a few weeks in Central Otago farming country in New Zealand in June 2021 helping my friend on her property. Acting as her clayton's WWOOFer. Loved it. But I'd already decided I wanted to go WWOOFing in Australia long before I went to NZ. It's been an aim for many years. Just a matter now of getting the van and bike on the road. Seize all opportunities that arise. While at same time helping hardworking, conscious people realise their own sustainable, small carbon footprint lifestyle.

I have 130 acres, half cleared and the other half timbered. The property in the past has been used for cattle and I am now changing this and am growing a medicinal honey forest. Right now I have planted 3500 trees and have 10 bee hives. The initial plantings have had problems and am looking for helpers to assist in fixing what has currently been planted and get ready for the next planting.

I have already been a WWOOFer 10 years ago when I did a Work and Holiday year in New Zealand. I never forgot the awesome experiences I made with different kind of people and very different life styles and always wanted to do it again. Luckily I get the chance now to make more of these great experiences.

(1) I want to learn more about organic gardening philosophy and practices across Australia. I am also quite happy to learn a new cooking recipe. I am keen to travel to different farms and places in Australia, being social and meet new people. I want to learn from them, and perhaps share my experience, knowledge and expertise. (2) I also want to have a different environment that allow me to do a remote study. Most of my study and work time is spent reading and writing. The timing is flexible and can adjust to the host's needs. Being in a different environment, particularly surrounded by garden, can stimulate my writing progress. Therefore, I appreciate if the host that can offer me a space, privacy and time to write and read. Though access to internet is preferable, I also do not mind using living off-the-grid as this can reduce distraction.

I live on a small holding at Barellan Point, which is close to Ipswich and the beautiful Darling Downs, and a 45 minute drive to the centre of Brisbane. I would love you to stay and experience living in an Australian home, whilst at the same time developing my organic smallholding and caring for my beautiful Belgian Shepherd Dogs, ages ranging from puppy to 15 years. I have accommodation for one person or a couple, but if you are in a larger group and have a campervan or a tent up to four are welcome.

I joined WWOOF to help me explore the world while meeting and forming friendships with locals along the way. I do not consider myself a profit-driven person, but prioritise the people I meet and skills I learn above all else.

I'm looking forward to the opportunity to meet interesting people (both wwoofers and hosts) around the country and share experiences, knowledge and ideas. I'm keen to learn new things and help out where I can. I've done a little bit of wwoofing in the past (not for a while), and I'm hoping to meet more like-minded people and contribute positively where I can. I'm particularly interested in learning more/helping out with self-sufficiency/off-grid living, sustainable homes/building, permaculture (keen to get a practical overview), soil, 'alternative' living arrangements, animal care (wildlife and domestic, particularly horses), ecotourism, bikes/cars/mechanical things, and other practical skills. I'd like to offer my skills and time to assist others where that would be useful for their work, property, or sustainable/enviro-friendly goals.
