As we enter another new year it is a good time to look back over the previous year, to let go of things we have outgrown or which no longer serve us. This is also a good time to consider the things we’ve learned and feel positive about, which we’d like to bring with us to help us on our way this year.
I would like to ask you to cast your mind back over your WWOOFing experiences of 2018 and pick out some of the highlights, the best bits, the times when you felt most alive, inspired and connected. Hopefully you will have photos or videos of those special people and animals you were with; the characters, the landscapes, the vibrant and nutritious food that combined to give you the feeling of happiness. You might have learned some really useful methods of growing which you’d never seen before, time/energy saving tips, green building techniques or crazy looking vegetables (or people!).
I would love to share these images and knowledge with our WWOOF community and the wider world on our social media platforms. I feel our organisation offers people the chance to discover something new and exciting in a world which can sometimes appear meaningless, bleak and even scary. WWOOFing is adventurous and has led people to find new friends, new ways of living, new hope and enthusiasm.
You can help me in this work by tagging @wwoofuk and/or using the hashtag #wwoofuk on your social media and by sending pics to: email@example.com
Many thanks and bright blessings to you for 2019.
