Why I became a WWOOF Host
Both Lisa and I have travelled extensively in our lives and have been shown extraordinary hospitality in many countries. We are both social people who love to cook and share food.
Also we are excited by the sharing of our organic knowledge. Hence becoming a Host is a natural progression for us.
