WWOOFing on Neptune Farm


When Sonya invited me to Salt Spring Island, she neglected to mention that we'd be working on the farm we were staying at!


But that's what we did. We WWOOFed. Sonya was David's first WWOOFer seven years ago.


WWOOF stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms; WWOOFers receive free room and board as well as a little education in exchange for a few hours of labour per day on the farm. It's a great way to travel, see the world, get in shape and learn about organic farming.


This one's a MEOWer.


We did some transplanting and soil hauling. All the fruits and vegetables on the farm are only little babies right now.


Apple trees!


Chickens! (We didn't eat these guys.)


Garlic!


Which went in this spaghetti squash stew for lunch.


...


Aaaand dinner time. A well-earned meal.


We made quinoa with bok choy, chard, broccoli, carrots, veggie sausage, Braggs and nut butter.


And topped with my new favourite flavouring agent, nutritional yeast.
