Learn About Our WWOOF-ing Program

 

Progress continues at Buckhorn, cabins 9 and 12 are well on their way to completion. They will soon complete the circle of renovated cabins and create four living spaces for our valued WWOOF’ers (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms). We had our first WWOOF-er’s last year with Buckhorn resident and farmer, Aiyana, heading up the program. We have hosted two volunteer WWOOF-er’s in the past, but with the growing gardens we will be ready for three to four workers as soon as the cabins are ready.

WWOOFer’s can find our more information about work trade at Buckhorn on our profile page of the WWOOF website. Generally they volunteer for 20 hours a week for room access to anything growing in the gardens and meals when we have groups. Additional paid work is also appreciated when we need the extra help during our busy season. We ask for a minimum stay of a month and if the feeling is mutual we hope that they stay on for longer.

Fruit trees have been planted in the freshly broken grown above the existing greenhouse. Aiyana continues to plant seedlings for the coming season.

Bruce’s old shop has finally been cleared out and is being converted into an Employee and WWOOF-er lounge. We will also use it as a excess food storage and laundry area. We are especially excited for the completion of this building; owner/chef Leslie wants to call it “The ‘L'”. It will also have a restroom in the far corner available for guests with a dual flushing toilet!
