Why I became a WWOOF Host

25 years ago I too was a WWOOFer and now looking forward to being a host. We have a Permaculture farm growing our Certified Organic herbs and value adding into skin care.

We have been here for 20 years and had our farm in a circular fairly self sufficient system with little input from us, unfortunately recently in the 2020 fires we lost our farm, though our straw bale home survived.

We need help to get back to where we were, needing assistance as we aren’t as young as we use to be and would love an injection of enthusiasm in return for our knowledge and direction.
