Anyone wanting to go on a woofing adventure with me? I have my eyes on a couple of farms in Europe and would love to have someone come along with me!! I know this is probably ridiculously early to be asking... but I plan on going in fall of next year.
Anyways it's always good to plan ahead right ) Plus if I have anyone interested we can get to know each other!
A little bit about me- I'm a 19 year old girl who loves anything to do with adventure. I find such solace and happiness in nature. I am an avid reader, lover of music, artist and huge lover of animals.
If you're interested then please let me know! You can contact me at lucymaemc@gmail.com if needed.

hi lucy,

im surprised you would post such a thing...but i am looking for something similar. However, I was hoping to find a group of 3 or 4, even 5, to wwoof with. Im currently a 24-year-old grad. Finally decided to go full force in learning the full scope of organic farming. If you feel im on the same page, I'd definitely be interrested in sharing ideas.

Im older than you both (about to turn 31) but if you're looking for a small group of people - I'd be interested. I've been thinking about dping some wwoofing to gain skills and experience but as it's just me I've been a bit put off as I like working as part if a group.

Hey everyone

I am looking to do some wwoofing as well to prepare me for school. I am a 28 yr old male, with some college looking for a fresh direction in life. I want to enjoy life while learning about nature, but i haven't been able to leave my job until recently. I will be able to go sometime in February if that is ok. I don't mind male or female company I simply want to connect with a small group to help me learn how everything works. I have very little knowledge of permaculture or farming hands-on, but read articles and watch videos of stuff all the time. For these and other reasons, this seems like a daunting task to look to accomplish on ones self with such a risk. The only real risk I have seen from researching, there are some wwoof locations that are really great (good farm owners, good working conditions, good yield, manageable workload, etc) and others are pretty bad (too many possible unknown risks to count). So unless you know a lot about the location and the information about their personel, or are going with a small group that are more experienced, it seems to me it would be a difficult and frustrating endeavor.

So if anyone wants to coordinate or get to know each other personally just message me here or at my personal email, flyersfan9191@gmail.com.

What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
