Hi I'm Daniel and I'm looking for some wwoofers in West Palm Beach Fl.  Looking for an experienced Wwoofers that are okay with camping out, using camp stoves, wood fires and sleeping outside. We have some fresh produce and frozen produce from the farm.  Looking to expand banana plants over the new cleared space, destroy weeds and work on other permaculture projects like fixing up old tools, reclaiming tools building new tools like a bicycle power water pump.  Pm or comment and we can chat about this opportunity.  Looking up update wwoof profile today also.   Thanks in advance

Living on a sailboat 9 years near Peanut Usland. Grew up on a 10 acre chicken farm. How goes your progress ?

That's my dream retirement. I might be able to make fresh water with a vacuum pump but where will I install a 100 sq ' greenhouse?

Progress is good. Not sure what we offer for space at the moment but we have shifted into full time farming and parenting. Pandemic has played a big role on me quitting landscaping and dropping 25 clients. Lizzy not teaching swim lessons this year, and selling on Etsy.   I’ve learned more this year than any other time in my life.
I’m not one to sit around when things get uncertain.  In January and February I was planning some garden expansions, planning for 3-5 years out but in March things changed quickly.  We started selling all kinds of farm products online and found ourselves becoming very busy processing and selling seedd, roots, cuttings, and fruit.  We sold everything we grew until we ran so low we had to buy more plants(dragon fruit) or plant out remaining cuttings or rhizomes for next year.   Never thought I would sell so much online. But it has also come with a huge headache of mail issues.  
Farmers have so many challenges, including manufactured challenges. USPS suddenly taking 1-21 extra days to deliver a package.  Others nature driven, summer heat.  

So we are planning and learning but we intend to host a Wwoofer or an intern soon. Lizzy will correspond with applicants when we are ready.  
Feel free to find us on wwoof and request a stay but please have experience, not just an interest. I know it’s not inclusive but time is a recourse and we hope to invite more people to see and learn but we have a lot of work to do.

I posted a video on the YouTube of my “food forest”   No link 😅
