It takes a village to raise a family and a village to run a farm. With the help of the WOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) Program, we have Woofers or interns that give their time in labor to learn Organic farming practices. Each farm has different labor hour exchanges for room and board. Well one of our interns is leaving this week and as we throw a going a way BBQ for her and thank her for her hard work I think of the 50 or so other Woofers we have had on our farm and celebrate their help, their insights, and the world of diversity that has enriched our lives and the lives of our children. You get the occasional bunk Woofer that is only here for a free ride but overall you get young individuals from all over the world, all backgrounds, and walks of life. It is like we have traveled the world on our farm and the kids have gained from this more than they know. A understanding and learning of people, lack of judgement of others, a curiosity to the world around. Thank You all who have shared your time and sweat to learn Organic Farming practices on Mahina Mele Farm.
Thanks to all of you!!!!!!!!
