18th - 30th July 2010 Wwoofing at Wairuna Organics Farm

18th - 30th July 2010 Wwoofing at Wairuna Organics Farm


I started to wwoofing at Wairuna Organics Farm from 18th to 30th July 2010,i already stayed here about 2 weeks.
Wwoofing means that
World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (also known as Willing Workers on Organic Farms)
Which a person work few hours to exchange the accommodation and food.
At the first time i came to this farm,something weird pop in my mind"whats a messy place it was!!"

There is a place we called 'station',a place for the wwoofer to cook,relax and chatting.
When u go inside,the 1st thing came to your eyes is,lots of the garlic is hanging on the roof,uncountable GARLIC!!!

There is something in my mind at the moment,that i will leave this place sooner than what i planned to stay..
But after 2 days,I'm start to enjoy the life here,harvesting the vegetables such as Potatoes,Baby Carrots,Yams, etc,washing the vegetables,weeding,feeding
the lovely cows,packing the vegetables all those stuff i need to do with my co-wwoofers.

Last Saturday,i got a chance to follow my host - Shaun,go to the Dunedin Saturday Market to help him sale the vegetables.Even though i need to woke up in the early morning about 4am,and it was so cold in the morning,but im really enjoy and had a great time there!!
I try my best to pursuit customer to buy the vegetables,sometimes i ask and learned something about vegetables from Shaun,and explained it to customer.
Even though my English is not so good(actually quite bad T.T)
But i still get used in it..^^
Finally,we got 1000++ NZD(New Zealand Dollar) sales from the vegetables!!

There was a girl from England came to these farm to became wwoofer few days after,so now we got 4ppls,me,Matias from Argentina,Kennis from Hongkong and also Leanna from England(Another wwoofers is Eddie from HK,he leaved 2days ago)

We always having lunch or dinner together,sometimes we had a language session,which Matias will be our Spanish teacher,and i will be their Mandarin Teacher,it was funny and fun~~^^
Apart from that,since we got a piano in our station,and Matias know a little bit of it,so he teach me a simple lyrics by piano,thanks to him.Leanna is really good in piano playing,it really touching my heart when she playing some song for us,its truly a lovely song~~^^

Even though i already leaved there quite a time,but still missed the time i stayed there...Really missed it...


Life is Simple and Fun
Learn to appreciate it^^
(I wrote these sentences on the wall in the station^^)

Sat on the 4WD motorbike,with my host droved it,
to feed the cow somewhere in the farm.



A cow is falling and can't stand up,we need few people to put it on the truck.
But few days more,these cow is dead,maybe it was too scared for few days,and gave up its life,so sad for it.
