Hello! I am looking for a well-run WWOOF Host Farm someplace in the southern US or possibly Belize or Ecuador, to volunteer.
Hiking, Horseback riding, gardening, scuba and sailing are my passions. I hope to travel during the months of November through March, starting this fall. I want to learn as much as I can from well-established WWOOF Host Farms, so I can possibly convert my own farms (in Indiana, and in the Ozarks) into Host Farms, within the next few years. Thanks for any insight about where the best farms are, to volunteer. Thanks in advance!
Hey there, I WOOFed in Ecuador, a farm called Sacred Suenos, here is their website: http://sacredsuenos.wordpress.com/, it's got lots of info.
It was my first time woofing, so I wasn't sure what to expect, nonetheless, it was quite an experience. Hard work and simple living. I was there Aug 2011 for 3 weeks. It seems that they've developed their programs.
The closest town where they get some of their supplies is Vilcabamba - there are some horseback riding tours here, run by a well known now local, name Gavin the Kiwi, who has some crazy stories. Vilcabamba also became a pretty fascinating place to discover too, many a stories arise from here: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/travelblogs/458/11816/Vilcabamba,+the+valley+of+eternal+spring?destId=363373
I also heard of another Woofing place near Quito, run by a couple of British girls.
Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions. almost 8 years ago
