An exciting new program exists in Ashfield, Massachusetts, at the Ashfield flower and vegetable farm Gloriosa. The opportunity to help area farmers and get a first taste of hands-on agricultural training is part of the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. An excellent article and video may be found at http://www.recorder.com/Area-farm-apprentices-learn-a-lot-more-than-farming-3328818. For those who may be interested in applying for 2017, visit www.wwoof.net. Volunteers usually live with their host and are expected to join in and cooperate with the day to day activities, and, if you have a farm, smallholding, garden, allotment, vineyard or woodland and follow organic or sustainability principles, you might consider opening your home to WWOOFers.
