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.

A few years ago, I spent a few weeks working in a wildlife rehabilitation center in South Africa and it was amazing. Living in the small, flat country of the Netherlands, I am looking forward to immersing myself in a completely different, open and more rugged environment to work with nature and animals again. WWOOFing seems a great way to discover a new place; while working hard and learning about my surroundings and the people, and hopefully making new friends along the way. I am looking to work for a few weeks in one place, explore the area, and continue to travel more of the country. I would love to work with or around animals, food and wine, or with ocean/lake/river related projects. However, I am broadly interested and open for experiences that had not yet crossed my mind. I'm not afraid of getting dirty and although do not have much experience in farming, I am looking to learn more, and I generally learn fast.

I first joined WWOOF in NZ in 2016. It was an amazing experience. I was travelling with a small group of friends and we were able to meet some amazing people and see some beautiful places whilst learning about local culture, the environment and food production

I joined WWOOF as it is an alternative way to travel discovering new places and people along the way.  It really is a unique opportunity to get out into the Australian countryside and experience Aussie culture while learning about organic farming and how to live sustainably on the land.  Others backpackers who I have met along the way recommended it a very worthwhile experience.  The bushfire season has highlighted the importance of community and the spirit of volunteering in Australia. I am willing to lend a helping hand and learn some of the tricks of the trade of organic farming along the way. Hopefully one day I will grow some of my own food. WWOOF is very relevant for the times we live in as these days many people are starting to think about where their food is coming from and see the value of healthy nutritious food grown locally. Which is great for local small businesses which I hear are the heartbeat of Regional Australia. To be a WWOOFer in Australia is to play a role in helping to make the world a greener, better place for us all.

I joined WWOOF because I've never had the opportunity to volunteer or work in a farm, and I'd like to try. I'd like to work in the outdoors, surrounded by nature and animals. I grew up in a small town in the countryside, so I'm used to that kind of life and it would be great to see places I wouldn't see otherwise.

The WWOOF organisation was recommended to me by a contact at Work n Holiday, as a great way to experience Australia and learn some practical skills for the rest of my travels. I was really excited about the prospect of being out and about. Being stuck indoors in the city was starting to grate a little.

Our farm is a mixed cropping, and grazing property set in a stunning valley in the foothills of the Richmond ranges National Park.

In addition we have poultry, Pekin ducks for eggs and meat, a mixed flock of about 30 chickens that produce gorgeous eggs daily. Finally, we have 19 guinea fowl, noisy, messy and often down-right annoying, but they eat ticks and keep snakes away. Other animals, we have two beautiful ginger cats for vermin control, mainly in the sheds, and a beautiful, loveable and majestic livestock guardian dog, a two- year-old Maremma, called Baci and an adorable Dixie puppy, called Dennis.

Since I'm into food, I started to curious about how the foods grow including vegetables or animals. Also interested in sustainable living practice which many WWOOF hosts are applying so I thought I could learn from them. I'm interested in organic/ permaculture practice, I thought volunteering through WWOOF is the best way to start with.

We were recommend this site from my sister who used it while she was in New Zealand. She met so many new and different people. We want to see what is out there of us and see more of Australia. We would love to instigate ourselves into an Australian community to get a real sense of the country and not just a back packers perspective.

I like to be in nature and spend time with people and achieve goals together. I like the animals and everything nature gives us. It is a small thank you to nature if I can help it.

I am joining wwoof again after three years homeless on the streets of Oakleigh Melbourne it feels like a step in the right direction. I can’t help but feel I’m better and more deserving than I have received. No water no gas no electricity no money no one to trust no one to turn to so I turn to woofing to change and turn around this cycle of homelessness.

We want to meet locals and explore the farm life while we are doing useful work. We are supportive for local and organic farmers, so WWOOFing fits us perfectly! Another reason is that we don't only want to see the city life an touristic side of Australia but we love to experience the family and farm life as well. We are looking forward to meet new people and gain lots of new experiences.

Since September we’re on the road and saw a lot of things and join the beautiful Australian landscape. Now it’s time to join the australian culture & meeting new people, therefore we join WWOOF. Besides we stayed over Christmas in a family near Sydney and we liked it there, so will be happy, if we can find a new one, which will host us for at least 2 weeks. Some people we met, tell us about WWOOF, for us it sounds interesting and give us the opportunity for a new adventure.

My farm in Italy regularly takes WWOOFERS from all over the world and after having great experiences with my Australian friends I thought it was time to visit this great country that I've heard so much about. Also, I want to share my skills with the people of Australia! I very much want to learn all the farming methods Australia has to offer because I love the country life. I want to improve my english also, because I am still learning.
