WwoofAs the weeds grew over our heads (I exaggerate only slightly), Mark and I decided we needed to look for help.  We tossed around the idea of hiring a part-time helper or getting an intern from the local college.  But we finally settled on WWOOF.  For a minimal fee ($5), the organization hooks up folks interested in learning about organic farming with farmers.  We get free labor and they get an education and free room and board.

Most WWOOF hosts ask their WWOOFers to stay for at least two weeks, but we're not ready to make that kind of commitment.  Instead, we're looking for people who want to experience the Walden Effect for a weekend.  If you're interested, give us a holler!  We're intrigued by the idea of meeting likeminded folks while also pulling some weeds.
