No, not a dog (though we have two of those). Thanks to our hyperactive jefe, EricTheFarmer, Sulphur Creek Farm is now a registered WWOOF farm. You cool dudes out there already know what that means--we know because two of our daughters have WWOOFed in New Zealand and Thailand.
But for the sadly underinformed rest of you, this stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms, started in the 70's in the UK, and now truly world wide. WWOOF provides descriptive listings of organic farms and gardens that host volunteer workers. In exchange for work (usually about 20 hours per week) host farms provide food and shelter.
We've already had 3 applicants--a New Yorker and a couple of Brits--in the first two weeks. I've duly informed the offspring that they need to book their bedrooms if they plan to be home this summer. Already the old home place is looking more attractive!
