You may have heard of WWOOFers (Willing Workers on Organic Farms), volunteer farmers on organic farms who trade labor for housing and food. Central Oregon Locavore, an online community and marketplace for local farmers, is creating a similar project, called WWOLFs - substituting "local" for "organic" (although most of the farms are organic, too).
If you've ever entertained the idea of farming or just want a good workout and homemade meal, join WWOLF for a day on Rainshadow Organics' farm in Terrebonne on February 13. It may seem a bit early to be growing vegetables, but, according to farmer Sarahlee Lawrence, "We'll be building the soil for all the goodies it will produce in the coming months."
Instructions are to bring warm clothes, gloves, lunch and snacks. Dinner will be cooked using the farm's food. RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 541-633- 0674. For more info, visit their site at www.wwolfpack.blogspot.com.
