We try to share our work depending on everybody’s experience and ressources; cultural exchange is very important to us.
Due to the hot weather, we start working in the garden early in the morning. We then try and stay inside for the hottest part of the day and go back in the garden towards late afternoon. This way our Wwoofers usually get the early afternoon free to go to town or the library or have a nanny nap.
You’d have to bring along garden gloves, well fitting garden shoes, old clothes for garden work (long pants and long sleeves). Depending on the season and personal needs, you’d also need to bring mosquitoe protection (head net, spray), sun protection (hat, sunscreen) and a raincoat.
