I'm enjoying my time here in scotland so very much. I'm able to stay for so long because of something called wwoofing, which stands for the world-wide organization of organic farms. Organic farms from all over the world sign up for this program which allows people like myself to work on farms in return for room and board. I am working and staying in a tiny, charming town on the west coast of Scotland called Glenelg. The family I am staying with lives in a beautiful house that has a view across the sound of sleat to the isle of skye. And of course, the house has a wonderful garden! My job is mostly to care for the garden, doing things like planting and weeding. The family also owns a luxury cabin that people (mostly honeymooners) can stay in, and I have been helping out over there too. Wwoofing has been a great alternative way of traveling, and I never would have had the guts to try it if I hadn't had such a nice experience with appelget farm to introduce me to farming.
Thank you thank you thank you!
