2012-06-06_08-35-17_130The program known as Worldwide Opportunities in Organic Farming (WWOOF) provides connections between farms around the world that are practicing some level of organic farming with people wishing to learn more about raising their own food. Kara Kahl Farm has been a host farm for eight years and, though we love to travel, we’ve found this to be an excellent way to bring the world to us. We’ve met a variety of great new people who are willing to share their lives with ours for a few weeks so we can exchange ideas & learn from each other.
