Maria from Barcelona…

Weeding herbs

Less than 24 hours after arriving from Barcelona, Spain, WWOOFer Maria is in the weeds! Here, she hand weeds parsley with Lynn. Maria is our first longer-term WWOOFer, staying for about six weeks. I found it a bit tricky, committing to an extended stay without meeting first, but it all seemed good after an exchange of emails, and here she is! She just finished her second year of university in…food engineering. This is her first farm experience, and from what I can gather so far, it’s really at the other end of the scale from the scope of her studies. Her English is quite good, and her vibe seems right. And there’s never been this much steady help in the field. Overall, it should be an interesting exchange!

  1. I’m with you Nat :-)

    We’re lucky to get the neighbor kid come help bale hay for $8 an hour and this guy got ’em flying in from Europe

  2. Yes, you do seem to grow more than veggies on your farm!

    But what I’m really interested in is how you got involved with WWOOF – I did some WOOFing when I was younger, and I’d love to get an apprenticeship opportuinty  going for next year. I’m trying to organize a few other growers so we could take a couple of folks for 2 or 3 weeks, having them rotate through our different farms. That way they could see how different people do things.

  3. I’m looking for a ‘Tiny Farm” estate just outside of Barcelona for a film project. Anybody?

    We will visit Barcelona 24 Nov-30 Nov in search of this location.

    Thanks and alll the best from Boulder, CO USA
