With the majority of the nation’s farmers being over the age of 65, this Southern-bred red-head is excited to be a part of the paradigm shift of her generation that is coming back to the land. With agriculture being such a mainstay and essential aspect of any culture, exploring and discovering differences in microclimates, growing methods, husbandry ideas, weed-management techniques and community involvement is what I’ve dedicated this season of travelling to.
This gal from North Carolina with a Someday Farm on her mind is gathering info and ideas and experience while accumulating a network of like-minded, foodie, natural-living and organic farmers.
WWOOF is a program dedicated to connecting volunteers/those interested in farming, with farms that have education to offer and work to lend out. Many countries have their own WWOOF organization and provided you have travel funds, once you’re on a farm it’s understood that your room and board will be provided. It’s a great way to travel inexpensively, get past the tourist lines and really experience the culture.
