WWOOF BNB Exchange

The idea:

City folks go to wwoof on farms. Farms give them free room and board, but generally can’t afford to pay them what their city jobs would pay.

While they’re away on the farm, their rooms (in the city) are empty.

They could be rented to someone and pay for the expenses of wwoffing.

It would be nice to have a way of attracting subletters who feel good about having their money support farm work and an urban person’s learning about food-growing and getting back to the land sort of thing. It would be a good alignment of values. It is in other ways a niche situation—not an airbnb (you’re not there to bnb your air)


Our Story:
Who gives a flying f—, it’s utterly uninteresting. But the idea is a good one. Let’s all move on with our lives and not try to give a flying f— about our story.

Our Story:
OK, fine, one day I was struck by an electrical bolt from a passing train car and developed super salamander powers.

I'm going to visit Dancing Rabbit ecovillage for 1-3 weeks this summer, hoping to bring back more knowledge and experience to build mores sustainability in Somerville.
What next?

Someone please create this idea, point me to it if it already exists, or sublet my room for three weeks in Somerville, MA this July-August.

Thanks so much!

Also, if anyone wants to contribute Amtrak rewards miles (free miles) to me so I can travel to I-forget-where, MS, where Dancing Rabbit is located, I'd be glad to accept the help. Please purple moosage me if so. Thanks!
