Hi I am very interested in volunteering at your farm. I work on a farm in Texas and will be making my way through Mexico later this year. I know some Spanish but want to improve. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you

Hi Greg! Sounds like a fruit paradise!!  My name is Melissa and I am 38 years oldI have lots of experience growing fruit here in the states.  Apples, Peaches, berries, pears, nectarines, currants etc.  Your farm sounds a little like heaven.  And the fact that you call yourself the dragon fruit slayer is wonderfully fun!!  I am charmed.  I have been a private gardener for 13 years, and I worked on a an organic farm before that.  I am a pescatarian but mostly eat vegetables and love to eat from the land.  

I can only stay for one month this year, but I am a fast learner and have lots of experience.  Last year I went to Panama for 6 weeks and it was a wonderful experience for everyone.  One thing that is very important to me is that I am able to swim on my winter sabbatical.  It looks like you are not too far from the shore.  Is there bus transport?

Thanks so much! I so hope you will consider inviting me to your orchard!  I love fruit and it looks like paradise!!
