Hello!

My name is Avery and I'm a 20 year old university student looking to learn more about sustainable farming and growing in Mexico. I’ve been going to Mexico every year since I was a child and have always loved the culture and the people and the food so I want to immerse myself more into all of it. I have a great love for plants and animals and have some experience working with them. If you think I would be able to help out on your farm and with your animals let me know, I would love to be a part of it. I will be traveling from October until December through Mexico.

Thanks,

Avery

Dear Tim

We are Karen Reed and Scott Breasseale, and we WWOOF together. We learned about Granja el Paraiso through WWOOF Latin America. It sounds wonderful there! We would love to come work with you. Do you have space for a WWOOFer couple — we need only one room/one bed — for two weeks during March of next year? Approximately March 7 – 21, 2018, though we do have some flexibility. We understand that you may prefer a longer commitment, but if you have room at this time, we are confident that with our combined skills and experience, we can do a good job for you and get a lot done. Would that be possible?

Karen:
“I grew up in Sheridan, Wyoming, where my greatest joy was riding horses and camping in the Big Horn Mountains. After getting married, I lived in rural Dallas County, Texas for almost 30 years, where we had a home dairy goat farm, with horses, donkey, house cat, and barn cats. I know how to milk by hand; I can make cheese: cheddar, Colby, mozzarella, several types of fresh goat cheese, and, of course, yogurt. I am also very familiar with horseback riding as well as animal health care – veterinary and delivering kids. I can sew and work in the garden. I can dig ditches, build fences, paint barns, and carry buckets of water – whatever is needed.  I have WWOOFed at Finca Ecologio Quebrada del Platano in Buritaca, Colombia, at Thom's Elephant Camp in Pai, Thailand, and Becker Family Stock Farm in Thermopolis, Wyoming, and served as Ambassador for WWOOF-USA, representing North Carolina and South Carolina regions.

For two years I worked at an animal education company and farmstead –http://www.cathyscritters.com/ — feeding and cleaning the cages of the rabbits, guinea pigs, and chicks, milking an caring for large livestock as needed, while assisting with business planning in the office.

English is my native language; I am fluent in German, have “intermediate” Spanish, and I have a master’s degree in business administration — I can help with marketing, community relations, budgeting, overhead allocation, and that sort of thing as well.”

Scott:
“I am originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, and spent much of my life in the mountains of Tennessee growing up as a young man. As an adult, I have been fortunate to visit, work, and live in over 27 different countries around the globe. I have a working knowledge and practical experience in rural survival skills, and I can hunt, fish, and cook. I possess a deep love of nature and I'm willing to learn new techniques and ways to sustain the environment and land that we have. I have a basic understanding of carpentry and I really like to build anything. I will work hard for the pleasure of seeing something completed; no matter what the task may be. I look forward to working with you and your family.

I have a BA in business and spent some time in the military. I’ve been a Program Manager for the last 12 years but my love is, and has always been caring for the earth and being outdoors.”  I have WWOOFed at  Thom's Elephant Camp in Pai, Thailand, and Becker Family Stock Farm in Thermopolis, Wyoming, and accompanied Karen while Ambassador for WWOOF-USA, representing North Carolina and South Carolina regions."

We hope to hear from you very soon.

Hello there,

I am so so happy that I found your farm and I immediately fell in love with it. Honestly, the picture looks amazing and you sound like such a nice community! :)
Me and my best friend would love to stay at a farm from the november to december 2018. We both have pets, love to take care of my mother’s garden and do yoga once a week! Your farm is actually perfect for us as I am a vegetarian and we both love fruit and vegetables. We want to support your sustainable lifestyle and help you with your projects! We are from Berlin, Germany by the way.

I would love to hear from you!!!!

Have a wonderful day and best wishes!
