Why I became a WWOOF Host

We enjoy hosting friends and have hosted some from another volunteer exchange program previously. We appreciate any help we can get as we work full time jobs AND are attempting to build this place so it’s not just sustainable but we can eventually work on it as our main income..

 

main areas we are working on:

replant the rainforest Years of ex cattle farming have taken away. A big october 2021 long weekend tree planting weekend coming up so message if interested as free camp stay if do!!

fencing to protect existing and new forests from domestic animals

Organic gardens to sustain us and build our swales with fruit trees and flowers to feed local and our own  bees

Management if our animals which yes we do use for meat and rehabilitation of our soils

Creating Mountain bike trails .. search, track and prospectively clear or maintain them

help with day to days, yes washing up, cooking, etc. This is just to keep our home capable of running well and feeding our guests.

We would LOVE to show people how to milk cow (when cows in milk again nov 2021) , make cheese, re use waste, and grow your own, through to create new better gardens & fences to keep our free ranging animals out! 🙂

and experience Elands! Fresh river water, lots of space, lots of animals to enjoy and hang out with and take care of.
