Hello! I am looking for a permaculture farm to spend a few months on this coming winter. I am part of a team of 4: myself and my partner Tony along with my sister and her 1 1/2 year-old daughter.

Tony and I have had years of experience wwoofing and working on organic and permaculture farms in several countries. We will be leaving Paul's project this fall and are hoping to find a place good for children. My sister does not have any wwoofing experience so we are hoping to find a place where we can organize and share our work load and also take shifts taking care of my niece.

My sister is wanting to learn about sustainable farming and expose her daughter to farm life. We are hoping that if we go as a team we can offer a fair exchange. Tony and I are interested in all things permaculture and all of us would like to learn more about animal care and would like to find a place with lots of animal systems. And possibly a place with other young children.

We are available for a few months this winter so would like to find a place that would need enough help in the winter months. Please let me know if you would be interested in our group or know of a good fit. We have access to the WWOOF USA database but it can sometimes be difficult to find a good permaculture place.

Hi emily,
We might have a situation that would be interesting for your crew at bella farm. Check out our facebook page, www.facebook.com/bellafamilyfarm if you like what you see, send me a pm, and we could discuss further.

We are located at the edge of the mountains in western Colorado, winter is definitely winter here, and we have highly integratd animal systems with dairy cows, homestead bred meat and egg chickens, layer ducks, and meat hogs.

I have a two bedroom apartment, insulated, with wood heat stove and kitchen. No running water, no electrical. Rustic, but less so than a teepee!

Good luck with your search,

Hi Emily, we are a family of three looking for the same winter arrangements. Wanted to see if you had any luck finding farms with children. We have an RV so living arrangements are taken care of. Thanks
