My property has been different since 4th January last year when a savage bushfire wiped out every square cm of its 175 acres. I always wondered whether established rainforest would burn easily, and I learned that if the fire is hot enough, the inherent damp in the environment makes virtually no difference to how combustible it is. It is still beautiful with a new rugged kind of beauty - the beauty of a survivor. It is largely ancient rock formations, and you can see the rock so much more now that it isn't draped in greenery. It has been amazing to see how quickly life has sprung back, though, as green sprouts emerge and take off from every nook and cranny. Here as a WWOOFer you can experience a pioneering lifestyle, living simply, very simply, without power and with variable phone and internet access. Sleep in your own tent if it has sewn-in floor, or in basic safe shelter provided and help develop a fabulous rainforest property on which I plan to establish accommodation for homeless young people. Tasks? You name it . . . previous helpers have gained skills in natural building (both earth building and construction with timber-in-the-round and dressed timber), how to fell and bark trees, how to build a professional looking deck using felled timber for the structure - also sheds, tank stands etc. Help to create our Cob buildings - currently in the planning stage. Stay a while and learn how to build a Cob house!  It's not as hard as you think. Previously we were developing an organic garden following permaculture principles, however that infrastructure was lost in the fire and so now we are starting all over again. For the time being, the emphasis is on getting infrastructure rebuilt, so there is accommodation and water available for a start. Most of my WWOOFers have had little or no prior knowledge about building, and they have come away with good knowledge and skills in a matter of days or weeks. I'm happy to say they have frequently commented on what a great experience it was. I look forward to hearing from energetic, willing helpers.

WWOOFing in all its various forms has been part of our world for almost 10 years. Needless to say we love it! In amongst plenty of hard work we've met some wonderful people, learnt an incredible amount both in terms of farming practices and different cultures and ways of life.

Great opportunity and reason to travel, spend time in nature and connect with people. I am keen to be involved in hands on work that supports others to build and maintain their sustainable living practices, learning along the way. Overall, I hope wwoofing will be an inspiring and energising experience.

At the moment, I find myself at a crossroads in life. I am looking for work and considering study options. I don't wish to return to the public service, yet I don't know what other path to take. I think that it'd be a good thing to meet some people through WWOOF, see some more of Australia, and doing some outdoor work again.

I joined WWOOF to seek farm work and enjoy country living. I am particularly interested in permaculture and organic farming techniques. However I’m open to any new learning while l work in a farm. I’m hoping to contribute to your farm and agro business. I look forward to meeting you.

I stumbled upon it when I was researching possible things to do. I joined because I am also very interested in the environment and am studying it at university next semester. I am hoping to have fun and gain some experience in a different field of work.

I have a long term plan that I am really hoping to achieve, and by joining this program it will give me the opportunity of learning from multiple farmers and gaining as much knowledge as possible. My dream is to run a bio-dynamic, self sustainable farm that has a small restaurant on the land, directly supported by the farm. If there are farmers that are seeking a young, hard working girl who is eager to learn and be taught, I am so ready to move my furniture into storage and jump on a plane to wherever you are if need be.

I've joined WWOOF because I'd love to learn more about growing organic food. I've worked a bit on our home veggie patch and have inherited some wonderful tips from my mum but I'm keen to get amongst it and get my hands dirty on a farm. I've long been passionate about supporting local growers and would love to learn more from some wonderful hosts and offer a helping hand wherever possible!

After 4 years of studying am very eager to get out of the city and away from theoretical concepts and into the natural world with real people working hard to solve issues around food production. I cannot wait to have my hands in the soil rather than typing away on a laptop all day. Through WWOOFing I hope to gain an understanding of the real life practise of organic farming. Given I grew up in Victoria, I am not so much interested in a cultural exchange or spending time doing 'touristy' things but rather working and learning from growers and farmers. I do hope to one day own my own land and have my own kitchen garden and so (rather selfishly) also hope to learn a few tricks of the trade for my own food production. I currently have leafy greens growing out of planter boxes in my tiny garden out the front of my unit in the city and it ain't cutting it!

We both wanted an opportunity to meet different people, to lend a hand and learn their ways of organic agriculture. It would create a level of intimacy and purpose to our travels. We hope to learn how people go about contributing to our populations food or feed themselves, from paddock to plate with minimal impact on the environment. To open our minds to alternative practice and getting us in touch with the work that goes into our food. Develop an appreciation for our meals and a respect towards the land it comes from. And SIMPLY we just would like to get our hands dirty and then share a rewarding meal and beverage with the hosts post our hard days work. To share our stories and have a laugh.
