Woofing provides the perfect opportinity to get to know new ppl occupations and cultures and helps me to get more work experience. Furthermore, it enables me to experience Australia without spending too much money while helping you on your farm
The first time that I heard about WWOOF, was in Chile like 8 years ago and I couldn´t believed that such an amazing network is helping people all over the world. I Join the WWOOF community to have more contact in the agriculture field, to be in touch with the earth and the people and to know how different is the agriculture in Australia than Chile. But also, I am looking for a job in this field, so maybe this is the way to show my self to the community. I have been looking for work in agriculture since I arrived, but it is hard to connect with farmers. The only option that I found was Gumtree and I haven´t found a job in organic agriculture there. I hope this Network could help me in this purpose. I know some farmers in Chile, who works with WWOOF and they told great stories and experience about this system.
