my name is Jürgen and I live in Germany. I am 45 years old and my job is in an office for landcape-architecture and I do computer-drawings. Since a few years I have reduced working-hours and so I have spare-time to do ecological garden work and food growing. I am interested in organic agriculture and would love to help and stay on your farm. I would like to see the tropical nature in the area of your home.
I have a littel wwoofing experience. In 2013 I stayed in a community in South-England. And in 2014 I helped a few days on a farm on Mallorca (Spain).
I have basic knowlegde of Spanish.
My favourite time to visit, is mid of January till mid of February 2017.
Muchas gracias y saludos.

Hello from Ohio!

My boyfriend and I are traveling to Mexico from December 22nd until January 12th. You project sounds like an ideal place to continue learning about sustainability, work physically in nature, and exchange whatever we can learn and teach.

I have some experience with permaculture, biobuilding, and organic farming from WWOOFing for three months in Argentina. My boyfriend has no experience which is why we are both so excited for him to learn. He is a master of natural juice and a great musician.

Sustainability is very important to both of us, and the work you do is important and wonderful and we hope to start a similar project in the future. 

We are easy going and easy to accommodate. We can bring our own tent too. 

I hope you will write back soon! you can email me aramaymoss@gmail.com, respond here, or message me on WhatsApp +1 (330) 604 0525. 

And if you prefer to write in Spanish that is fine too!

Hola Gerardo,

te envió un correo varias veces pero no me contestabas ni en el teléfono.

estoy en Chetumal en un hostal como voluntario de momento. Estoy 
buscando un lugar natural para quedar me un mes o dos meses.
Yo me encanta la naturaleza - los animales y una vida natural con todo
el respecto por el mundo. Hace muchos años me interesan productos
orgánicos y ahora quiero trabajar fuera con plantas, construcción y
todo que hay en una finca.
Espero de nuevo a su repuesta - Muchas gracias

Hola Gerardo!!

Soy un persona nueva en WOOF buscando aprender y vivir experiencias en granjas orgánicas en diferentes regiones del país, mi nombre es Josue, tengo 27 años y soy un chef con varios años de experiencia, acabo de regresar a Mexico después de 3 años en el extranjero y tuve la oportunidad de visitar un granja que forma parte de WOOF en Inglaterra y me pareció impresionante lo que se hace ahi, también estuve en Puerto Escondido Oaxaca en un huerto ecológico aprendiendo sobre plantación de hortalizas y arboles frutales de la region. Tengo pocos conocimientos en granjas orgánicas ya que he trabajado en cocinas pero muchas ganas de aprender y transmitir mis conocimientos si son requeridos.
Por el momento estoy en la Michoacan hasta principios de enero, me preguntaba si habría oportunidad de hacer el voluntariado con ustedes a mitades de Enero por el tiempo de un mes. Muchas gracias de antemano y espero contar con la oportunidad.

Josue Mendez Michel.

Hola Gerardo!

My friend, Hanna, and I are two university students looking to spend about two weeks working on your farm in May 2017 (we are flexible around the dates 10th-28th!) 

The description of your farm on the WWOOF website is very appealing and sounds like it would work extremely well for us, in that we would be able to wholeheartedly contribute to your lifestyle! 

This is both of our first WWOOFing experiences, but I am a fast learner and will be able to easily pick up anything you show me to do. Hanna is very eager to contribute and I am extremely interested in learning more about sustainable agriculture and looking forwards to lots of hands-on work and activity in your beautiful environment. You can contact me at this email address (sophiajones245@gmail.com) 

Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from and working with you!

Sophia Jones

Mr Pena, your farm appears to be a good match for me. I have spent 2015-2017 Wwoofing on the Big Island of Hawaii. Wwoof has become a second career for me. I have over 20 years construction experience. If you would like to discuss details such as dates etc please reply.


You need to be following Farm in Sac Be, Quintana Roo, Mexico to send them a message.
