WOOFing

(Willing Workers On Organic Farms)

You will be expected, like all WWOOFERs, to work for about 6 hours a day for 5 days a week (Monday to Friday) in exchange for food and accommodation. 

What will be required of you at this time of the year is mainly cutting back growth/bush and weeds; some planting of seedlings; watering; repairs & maintenance; cooking; cleaning and so forth .

Some of our community members, might require some help from time to time with building and maintaining their new homesteads too.

General Volunteering

This option is for people that wish to have more free time and flexibility with the work schedule.

The same type of work will be required of you yet the hours will be less and we will try to work with your interests and skills, however you will be required to provide your own food.

Your Accommodation

in the “Farm House”

You will be staying in your own bedroom in the “Farm House” which is an old house used by wwoofers and visitors and also some members of our community.

You will be expected to clean up after yourself in the kitchen and bathroom as well as keep your own room tidy and clean.

We have outdoor compost toilets.

If the house generally needs a clean then you will be expected to help out with that too.
