Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF)

I found out about this organization some years ago through friends who actually had the experience. As a result, their awareness was heightened in relation to where their foods come from and that you can really go and pick your dinner. I am all about creative travel and truly being changed by it, as a result. What I appreciate about this project, is that you can pick anywhere you may want to go in the world, get a ticket, and just go volunteer on an organic farm, and just about anywhere too. For your help, you recieve good clean food and a clean space to stay, a wealth of knowledge on how to cultivate and sustain an organic farm, and most importantly, you will learn something worth repeating. That makes it all worth while. Worlwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) began in the UK in 1971, their focus is to spread the message of true sustainable living and to provide its participants with the richest experience possible. It may be unconventional to most but, I think its the best way to be. You have to witness the world through rose-colored glasses once in a while, it reminds you of the magic in it. I say all that to say, if you usually fly somewhere and stay at a nice hotel, then rely on the concierge for your best little taste of the night life, then that's just a trip. And that's cool if that's what you're into. Life is to be experienced and nourished by, why not go to a new place, be awestruck, and learn something that will help the world. Walk to be new everyday. The WWOOF project is currently in the Bahamas, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamacia, Nicaragua, Panama, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Gambia, Kenya, Morocco, Nambia, Nigeria, Bolivia, Columbia, Peru, Uraguay, Venezuela, Belguim, Croatia, Finland, Greece, Holland, Iceland, Norway, Poland, Russia, Jordan, and Hungary. I am sure I left some out but, you get my drift. For more info and good works in the world, please check .... Bless and Be light......
