My wwoofing experience

I am living in England since the 16th February 2013.
I decided to have a experience as a wwoofer.
Woof (http://www.wwoofinternational.org/welcome-to-wwoof) is an world organization aimed to promote organic farming and ecological style living.
Every one can have an experience  around the world in several organic farms. Every volunteer helps the farmer for 5-6 hour per day and can have accommodation and healthy food.

It’s a nice way to improve the language, and to know the rural culture. I think the wwoofer experience is a good experience that allows you to visit unspoilt places, villages outside of the traditional routes and to discover your hidden  skills and a new way of living.

My first experience as a woofer has been in Feniton, a small village in Devon. It is quite near to Exeter the most important city of Devon
I lived two weeks in a house with a nice garden and I often worked in Barnfield Farm, a care farm located in Luppit, a small village near Feniton.
I worked in horticultural activities both in politunnels and in the in the field outdoor.
One day a week we involved disabled guys in horticulture activities.
