We are family in our early 30’s From the Yarra valley, Victoria looking to broaden our understanding of farming and agriculture. We are interested in raising our own cattle and sheep and growing preferably organic produce to both sell and markets and consume ourselves. Carly is a veterinary nurse and has a lot of experience dealing with livestock having worked in a mixed practice for 5 years. Michael is an electrician who has worked in the city and now wants operate plant such as excavators and tractors and putting that to good use on our property.
Why I joined WWOOF
We are in a position in our lives where we can drop everything and have an experience such as the one offered by wwoof. We have an 18 month old daughter who we would hopefully join us on the experience. We have both gained various skills from both of our respective professions and we would like to channel that into a more agricultural settings. After doing research we feel the wwoof experience will give us the tools we need to broaden or competency in agricultural life.
