We see WOOFing as not only a way to explore Australia but also a platform to help us learn. Hamish and I both try to live an environmentally conscious lifestyle. We understand the evergrowing need for sustainable farming and permaculture (Hamish even wrote his university dissertation about permaculture!) As we both eat a plant-based diet, we're hoping to put these new skills into practice and grow our own food as well as take some time away from the UK for a little while to explore what else is out there!
I joined WWOOF through American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS) and I am interested in learning about life on Australian organic and permaculture farms and learning about growing and producing organically. I am hard working and willing to learn.
