Emily and I have new lines for our resumes, “wwoofer.”  World Wide Organic Farms or Willing Worker On Organic Farm.  Its a common term here.  In the best case scenario a wwoofer works anywhere from 4-6 hours a day and receives room and board.  The idea is that they learn aspects of organic farming – hands on.  Many younger folk use it as a way to afford to travel around Australia.

We’ve been doing work to put up wombat and wallaby fences to keep them out of areas.
