We were discussing coming Aug 2 -16 to get our feet wet ( myself and 13 yr old daughter). She mentioned the WWOOF week starting Aug 16 and that it might be better for us. Only issue with that would be my kiddo starts virtual school that week. Is there a quiet space for her to do computer work with internet? She wouldn't be able to help as much during the day. Also, what are the sleeping arrangements for 2 and do they differ depending on wwoof vs bootcamp?
Sorry for any repeat questions. I tried to find them on the thread but there are so many. Is there a search button in each thread? I can't seem to find it..

Then I think the thing to do is to pay the $120 for the two of you and come on out. As a boot, we are pretty good at setting you up with a bunk if you want one - although it is not guaranteed. The love shack is currently open.
People that come for wwoof week will need to bring their own tent. Boots are required to put in 40 hours per week, but wwoofers, by the stuff that wwoof publishes, are only required to work six hours per day. So we tend to favor the boots.
Also, if your daughter is here when she needs to be in school - we do have a lovely spot that has wifi. But if she is going to be here but not working as a boot (or wwoofer) then I would like to understand what sort of arrangement you propose.
Thank you for the quick response.I decided to take this opportunity with the way the world is going to get out of the city and expose myself and my kid to hard work, community and reward. My goal is to commit to 2 weeks and see how that goes. Being that we do not currently have a home and I run my business online, it should work and could work for longer term if all goes well. Yes I agree coming before the wwoof week sounds best so she wont have school work to do. I'll go ahead pay the bootcamp fee.

Brianna Wetherbe wrote:Hi there- I’m hoping to join the boot camp for a few weeks in October. My husband will be with me (we are traveling in our camper van) but he works virtually so he won’t be able to commit to the 40 hours a week. He has weekends free of course and maybe an hour or so he could work each week day. I can work 40 hours a week without a problem. Was wondering if we could still stay? Our van has solar and a little fridge and everything so we can bring a lot of our own food
I prefer not to add salt or sugar to my food. Can this be accommodated? What are the shower/bathroom conditions? What are the options if I prefer to stay by myself (social distancing, etc.....)?

I need a place to park a small RV where I sleep and make coffee and try to become human every morning. But if possible I would like to share lunch and dinner with the crew. I would be happy to chop carrots or otherwise make cooks life easier for an hour or so daily if that helps.
