Next Summer, I will be cycling across Canada and I hope to volunteer as I go - thereby helping greatly with accommodation costs.
I am wondering whether anyone has ever done such a trip? WWOOF'ed/other volunteering organisation in this part of the World?
If so, what advice can you offer to a first-time WWOOF'er/volunteer?
Has anyone cycled across Canada before? Can you give any advice with regards to that?
I will be leaving from New Brunswick - so it's not exactly a coast-to-coast, but pretty close.
Yah I have wwoofed in Canada, mainly vancouver island! It's a really great experience. Beimg outdoors, working with the land and animals. You get to learn so much! Some farmers are great and some are a little off their rocker...but you take the good with the bad its all about the adventure :) my advice would be to try to contact the farms in advance. Some farms can only accomodate a certain # of people. Even if its just a week or two to see if they have room for you. Oh and you'll find a lot more farms in BC from what I remember. As for the whole biking thing, never done that...so good luck :) bring lots of water for the prairies!!! about 4 years ago
