The Garden is In! Filling, Planting and Learning on Dakota Farms

Guest blogger and novice gardener Shelley Moore plants her vegetable seedlings.

Ever dream of harvesting grapes in Italy, baking bread in France, or tending sheep in Australia? An international network called World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) helps travelers arrange free room and board on an organic farm in exchange for five or six hours of (mostly manual) work a day. The WWOOF program links volunteer workers with farmers in about fifty countries throughout Europe, Africa, North and South America, and Asia. The goal is to promote organic farm subsistence and give workers farm experience while allowing them to visit a foreign country on a budget. Volunteers might pull brambles, milk cows, build fences, and sow or harvest crops. In return for their toil, they gain insight into rural life and help farmers pursue a sustainable lifestyle.
