We hope to become farmers in the next few years and joined Wwoof to learn while living and experiencing this life directly. We think it’s important to do this as a family before adjusting our lives permanently. We are passionate about the health of our planet and our connection to land, and that it’s key to addressing many of the biggest issues we currently face as a civilisation. We wish to learn from the experience and knowledge from those making a life on the land and through hands-on experience....and have a great time while doing it!

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.

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 it's the one oft he best way to combine traveling with working. Furthermore I like the way of giving and taking from each other in the wwoofing experience. We wwoofed for a while in New Zealand and we had very good experiences. Also it is beautiful to learn more about the life of the native people and to learn more about the culture. Even if we love to be on the road it's nice to have from time to time a little home and to be a part of a family/ community. Another reason why we joined wwoofing is that you can learn from other people how they life or doing their garden. We love to work with or in the nature and to do active work. To learn is an mind opener and we really like to be more keen on in the self-supporter lifestyle.

The reason that I join Wwoof is to learn how to grow organic vegetables, including pest control, seed collection, irrigation, and all other process involved. I want to build a life style that I could be mostly self-sufficient, and also raise a few chickens ad other pets. I’m also interested in connecting with local farmers, not only to learn from them, but also to experience a different lifestyle. Now, I came to a realization that what work I choose to do, is what lifestyle I’m having. I choose to be close to nature and outdoor activities, and maybe one day will have my own veggie gardens. This is more attractive to me compared to computer work.

Skills I Want to Learn:
We'd love to get to know what life is like here in Australia. We want to gain experience of what it's like to work on a farm and with animals. Before we're going to work on a farm where we get paid we want to see what it's like to live on there, how the day starts and ends and what are the things you have to do.

After deciding to leave Sydney, we wanted to experience a different lifestyle away from the busy city life that we have seen so far on our travels. We felt that WWOOF would be a great platform to connect with people who could provide us with the opportunity to work on farms affected by the bushfires whilst also giving us the chance to meet and get to know new people along the way!

We think it's the best way to find farms that we can help. Besides, we have already read very good recession about wwoofing and we also think that this is the best way to get contacts.

While being on the other side of the world I would like to do as many different things as possible to discover as much about myself that I can. I like meeting different people because we all have different stories and can learn much from eachother.

To have the opportunity to learn more about sustainable farming and lifestyles, and meet some new and interesting people. Chiara would love to be able to put more life experience behind the 'theory' she is learning in her studies. We are both friendly and love meeting new people from all different backgrounds.

I joined WWOOF because I think it is so important to work hard outside and learn more about other countries. Hard work has been instilled as a core value in me from a very young age, and WWOOF sounds like the kind of hard work I enjoy. I also want to learn more about Australia and its culture, so I am very excited to form a relationship with the host.

We would love to experience WWOOF-ing for a variety of reasons: 1. We love being outside and being active! We are so blessed to be healthy and to have this time with our kids, and we would love to experience farm work with them. 2. We love learning new skills! Neither of us has much farm experience, and we want to model for our kids that we're always learning and growing. 3. We look forward to meeting WWOOF hosts and creating lasting family friendships. 4. As a traveling family of four, we are constantly looking for ways to stick to our budget and be smart with our spending. If we can exchange farm work for accommodation and meet locals in the process, that's a win-win!

I've always been interested in living off the land and one day would like to have a go a semi self sufficiency myself. I'm not sure if Darwin is the place to do this because of the poor soils, very dry Drys and the sometimes torrential Wets. I did two WWOOFing placements in the US and enjoyed it very much.
