Hi,Ive worked as a chef and pastry chef for 30 years,I have two children and three grandchildren,done a lot of landscaping and stonework,biulding and fruit picking.At the moment Im studying[time for a change].Ive done a year of wwoofing so far,and had a great time,met lots of interesting poeple.I like the alternative lifestye of growing your own produce,cooking,and preserving[ferments a favorite],Ive learned how to operate most farm machinery,love tractorsand quid bikes,hobbies are anything outside,on the water,and reading,and I still love to cook
Why I joined WWOOF
It seems like a better way of working while travelling than the standard way of finding work, having that monetary relationship, worrying about where to live, trying to negotiate wages and all the other humdrum stuff. It sounds like the hosts are willing to share their knowledge, knowhow and experiences and be friendly at the same time. A very welcome change.
