DescriptionHave you ever wanted to spend some quality time with a goat?
Are you the traveler who seeks authentic experiences with locals?
Have you ever been curious about farm life, but felt out of place as a city kid?
If so, WWOOFing may be for you!
WWOOF, or World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms, is a network of farms all around the globe who provide food and accommodation to travelers in exchange for 4-6 hours of work per day.
Whether you’ve been WWOOFing for years, or this is the first you’ve heard of it, you’re invited to join this conversation. Leah will explain how to find the right farm for you and everything you need to know to start, as well as share a few personal stories and answer questions. Leave with the dream of eating food grown right on the land, making friends with goats, and the renewed sense that rich travel experiences are possible even without a lot of money.
LEAH MICHELSEN is the founder of the website Squashbucklers.com which helps newbies to environmentalism follow their interests to develop earth-friendly habits. In 2018, she and her sister road-tripped around the US and Canada and volunteered on different farms. From picking berries with volunteers from four different countries in a tiny town in Canada, making omelets with fresh duck eggs and garden veggies every morning in Washington, to selling her own apple butter at the farmers’ market in Colorado, WWOOFing left her with many meaningful experiences, and she’s been encouraging others to do the same ever since.
