We are Suzy and Felipe, a responsible, caring and adventurous couple from Spain. We are two teachers who have just finished a Master’s degree in multilingual education (both fluent in Spanish and English) and have decided to discover the world. We have been in Australia for four months and have had a great experience WOOFING.
Due to our love of nature, we enjoy planning outdoor activities, such as hiking, having a picnic, surfing, taking photographs and so on. We also like to spend time at home, as we love films, books, board games, baking, gardening and so forth.
Why I joined WWOOF
Having grown up in the Canary Islands in Spain, and having both recently qualified as teachers, we are now travelling through Australia together. We would like to WWOOF in order to experience the natural beauty of rural Australia.
Furthermore, we have always wanted to work in a farm as we love animals and plants. Visiting our grandparents farms in our childhood has made a great impact in our lives, as one of our dreams is to have our own farm, in which we can have many animals and plants. Moreover, as teachers we are fast learners and enjoy learning new things. This is why we consider WWOOFing a great opportunity for us.
We have had the pleasure to work at Mount Cotton Organic Fruit and Veg for 3 months where we have learnt lots of new things. Our favourite part is working with animals, we were able to hatch two batches of 20 chicks each which was a lovely experience. We also fed a baby cow, chickens, ducks and cows.
The farm we worked on had a great variety of fruit and veg (macadamia, avocado, corn, shallots, radish …) which we planted, weeded, collected and prepared for orders. We also worked with seedlings in a greenhouse and learnt how to mulch. It was a great experience and we can’t wait to start farming again.
Thank you for reading our profile and taking us into consideration. We are looking forward to meet you!
