What is your previous experience with Organic Agriculture and Sustainable Development?
I have been doing organic gardening/urban homesteading in Chicago for the past 4 years. I have worked on farms in Illinois and in El Paso, helping with upkeep, farmers markets, planting, harvesting and leading workshops. I also have experience with poultry--raising chickens and turkeys, as well as butchering them (sorry that sounds morbid!). I like the land.
What are your reasons for joining WWOOF Mexico?
Learning about sustainable living and agriculture, Getting to know Mexico better
What do you want the farms and fellow WWOOFers to know about you?
I have a great passion for spirituality, land restoration and social justice. I am also Mexican-American and am looking to know my father's culture better--especially the agricultural practices.
