I've contacted several farms so far, with no reply from anyone! Please someone let me know there is life out there....

 

Hello Jose, The normal waiting time when expecting  a response from a farm is up to 2 weeks. If some farms take longer than that or don't relpy at all, please send us an email to wwoofmail@yahoo.com

HI Linda,

How far from San Miguel is the farm?

Thanks,

Sylvia

Farm In San Miguel:  Host ID: MEX0062

 

This small farm is part of an off the grid permaculture community.  I was there from March 8 - April 11. The hostess is one of the most amazing women I've ever met.  Incredibly knowledgeable about making things grow in the high desert.  I learned a lot and really enjoyed my experience there.  I highly recommend for anyone who wants to learn about growing food in an arid environment.  If anyone has questions, please email me at l.gardener@yahoo.com.

hello Jose,

It usually takes some time before you get answers. I can hardly recommend you "divertigranja" in Etla near Oaxaca. The  man who runs it on his own is in a wheelchair. He just mailed that there are no volunteers at this moment, so that's lots of work for a man on his own. So he can defenitly use some extra hands:) His English isn't very good, so I don't know if you also speek spanish? If you are interested I can give you his email. He usually doesnt answer posts on WWOOF.  Hope this helps you (and hugo, the owner).

Hi!!

Can anyonw give me any feedback about the farm in Xochimilco?

Thanks!!

Hello,

 

I would like to complain about a farm I recently wwoofed at from August 22 to September 4. The farm page is called "Farm in Xalapa, Veracruz" (http://www.wwoofmexico.org/group/farminxalapaveracruz4) and the administrator of the farm is Ruben Mandujano Medina. There was no host at the farm and there was not much effort on the part of the owners of the farm to make sure we were accommodated for. Also, I was told that I would be given money for food, but I never was. I had to buy food twice and was never compensated for the money that I spent. Another time the water stopped working, and since the family lives three hours away from the farm and there is no way to contact them from the house at the farm, I had to take a taxi to town to contact Ruben in order to tell him that the water was not working. Indeed, if there was an emergency at the farm there was no way the Mandujano family was going to find out unless I went to town to find a phone to contact them.

 

If you would like to know any further information then please let me know. This farm is not suited for volunteers and any volunteers looking to stay at this farm are better off volunteering in their home country.

 

 

Regards,

 

Joe
Thanks for the notice
