Hi! My name is Emily and I am 24 years old. I graduated from University in May and would love to travel and learn about farming practices before I begin an office job. I studied environmental studies and am passionate about simple living and sustainability. I currently live in Massachusetts in the United States and have worked on a variety of farms here as well as on the Big Island of Hawaii. I am a vegetarian, I love animals, I love meeting new people and learning about other cultures, and I would consider myself easy to get along with. I’m a hard worker and in my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, hiking, running, reading, and cooking.
Why I joined WWOOF
I joined WWOOF primarily because I am looking for a way to help mitigate the effects of the devastating wildfires that have impacted so much of Australia. I have yet to find an organization that places international volunteers in communities in need so hopefully I can find a farm in need through the WWOOF platform.

Organic Practices, Permaculture/Biodynamics, Gardening, Pruning, Composting, Soil conservation, Mulching, Animal Care, Beekeeping, Worm farming, Fencing, Building, Natural building methods, Handyman, Mechanical, Cheese making, Preserving food, Wild food foraging, Fermenting food, Wine making
