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 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.

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.

I joined WWOOF because I do not just want to be another tourist in Australia. I want to experience the country, its people and culture with a more concrete approach. After a ton of research, I came across WWOOF and it seemed like what I was looking for.

I have a dream to start my own animal assisted therapy practice with Alpacas. I have a little experience with Farm life; but am keen to get a proper taste of life on a farm. This is also a great opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and learn from new people in new places. I'm particularly interested in learning how to handle and care for livestock to be able to bring skills back to my family who are reasonably new to the rural lifestyle.

This is a good sized garden in the northern suburbs of Canberra where we grow a range of temperate-climate fruit, vegetables and flowers for home use and to gift to friends and neighbours. Visitors will have a comfy bedroom in our house with good wifi coverage. We are looking for people interested in short stays (3-7 days) to do 4-5 hours general gardening a day, leaving plenty of time to explore Canberra. I can pick up from the airport, train or bus station.

City/Town: Buffalo
Farming Methods: Permaculture
Accommodation Type: In Our Home, Separate Building, BYO Accommodation
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.

I would love to learn about how organic farms work and help on a farm, and spend more time outdoors. I hope to take what I learn and live a more sustainable lifestyle back home and help to educate others.

I've joined WWOOF because I want to travel to other countries and really get to know different cultures, and I also want to improve my English. I love nature and animals and I would like to learn more about animal care (especially about animals that aren't common in Italy), but I also like agriculture and cooking.

I currently work at a utilities company and it's helped me to learn that I love working outside in the fresh air and getting exercise as I work. I want to spend more time with plants and animals and learn more about how to look after them, specifically ducks and goats if possible -- I'd be interested in owning both someday, but want some hands-on experience with them first. I grew up with chickens and a horse. My parents used to make their own grape juices, applesauce, fruit preserves, bread, ketchup, and even a syrup made with bark from a hickory tree! I'm interested in doing more sustainable cooking, eating, and preserving, and working with ingredients from the soil to the table. When I was in Singapore a few months ago I visited a bar that uses as many local ingredients as possible to design cocktails native to the area, such as jackfruit or hibiscus flavoured drinks. They also used locally-sourced products to make their coasters, cups, and most other things in the bar! I really admire that philosophy.

Enjoy the river and beach lifestyle while staying on our sustainable oyster farm on the beautiful Crookhaven River. Comprising a land base and 10 hectares of water leases, the farm is located in popular holiday destination Greenwell Point in a friendly co-op of oyster farmers. The Crookhaven River is part of the Shoalhaven estuary, an area of outstanding natural beauty on the NSW south coast, 2.5 hours south of Sydney. Work includes assistance with Aquaculture practises including the cultivation and harvest of Sydney Rock Oysters. General farm assistance includes both land based and water based work. This farm offers an exciting opportunity to work on the water in a calm river estuary with an experienced boat operator. In your spare time, you can take our kayak around the river, surf at nearby beaches or go on a hike through bushland with amazing views and wildlife. For those without their own transport we have bicycles to ride to the local shops at Greenwell Point. The nearest town, Nowra, is a 30 minute bus ride and offers a cinema, cafes/restaurants and shopping. Accomodation includes a comfortable, fully self-contained cabin for up to 2 people on site, separate to our home. Food is provided (vegetarian/vegan can be accommodated) to be heated by WWOOFers or prepared in own accommodation. The farm is accessible by train from Sydney to Bomaderry train station, where we will pick you up from the station and take you to the farm. If you are coming from Melbourne by train, we can pick you up from Moss Vale station, which is about 1.5 hours drive from the farm.

  • 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.

I have always been interested in WWOOF as I learned about it many years ago and it appeals to me as an opportunity to learn about an experience farming while saving costs to explore a new country. I hope to gain some valuable knowledge and experience that will transfer to my own agricultural endeavors in the future. One of my long term goals is to live sustainably and sustain my family at least partially through farming our own land. Australia has always been high on my list to visit, and being that I am so close to it here in Thailand it seems like the perfect time to join WWOOF Australia!
