This will be our seventh season hosting wwoofers. WWOOF stands for Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms. It is basically a work exchange whereby we provide room and board and teach young people how to grow food in exchange for them doing farm work 4-5 hours per day five days per week. This could include helping with:
- Organic vegetable gardens- building raised beds, soil preparation, planting seeds and seedlings, mulching, weeding, watering and harvesting
- Blueberries- harvesting and processing/cleaning blueberries (We have 3 acres of certified organic berries nearby)
- Building compost from seaweed, grass, leaves, hay, food scraps
- Production of nutrient rich garden “teas” for plants from seaweed, compost, vermicompost and weeds
- Orchard – pruning, mulching, watering and harvesting fruit
- Firewood -splitting with our hydraulic splitter and stacking it
If you know of any young people who might be interested in WWOOFing for us, please ask them to contact us.
