This was my first WWOOFing experience and I had a wonderful time over the 5 weeks I spent at Amberly. I was a Canberra local experiencing Canberra from a whole new perspective. John, Carol, and Elise were warm and welcoming hosts. Per the comments below, I felt like part of the family, experienced a diverse range of work, and was grateful to learn so much from the Amberly team. Adored all the gorgeous farm animals. Tasks included collecting and packing eggs (and selling eggs at the market, before lockdown), fencing, weeding, feeding chickens, dogs, and cows, and gazing adoringly into the eyes of newborn calves. Also did some tree planting, mustering, installed a tap, filled in ditches, laid cement, helped with the spring cleaning in the shed and garage. Plenty of leisure time and things to do: I enjoyed playing lots of piano at the house and exploring the local nature reserves. Great vegan food and compelling conversations. I learned a huge amount in terms of farming knowledge, practical skills, and different ways to see the world. A massive thanks to the Lilleymans and co! Cleo
