celebrating WWOOFing

Aug 31, 2015

Once in a while it’s great just to celebrate the wonderful thing that WWOOFing is – that’s why we are particularly delighted to bring you this news from the Chisholme Institute, in the Scottish Borders.

We’ve had a fantastic summer up here in the wild and wonderful North, and to a large extent this was due to you! 


Oh you – WWOOFers and volunteers of all ages – you came from Australia, India, the US, the UK, from France, Germany, China and Spain, and you weeded and chopped and cleaned and cooked and baked chocolate cup cakes and wandered the woods, and you shared your stories and you brightened up each day with your enthusiasm, your energy your smiles and your play. 


Chisholme’s only purpose is to be a mirror to who we are, so we hope you learned something new about the world and your self, and we hope you enjoyed being here as much as we enjoyed having you. There is much, much more to discover, so we hope you come back next year! These are just a a few of the pictures from our July Volunteer Week.

 
Thanks to Fran and Hamida for sending us the photos and these inspiring words. And we would love to hear from more and more of you – editor@wwoof.org.uk
