  • Message to WWOOFers:

    Dear WOOFer
    You can expect a clean/comfy room, clean bathroom with hot water (solar water heater), western style toilet. We also have Wifi access so you can keep in touch with your family and friends all over the world. From your room you have a nice view over the fishpond and into the fields. E-mail me to get pictures.
    In terms of organic farming, we believe to be more careful and considerate of the environment than many other farmers in the area. However we know that there is things we can learn and improve. I hope that trough WWOOF we might find somebody who can bring his/her own experience with him and share it with us. Organic farming and healthy food in China are just starting to develop, we are by no means perfect. But we are learning and improving every year. Anybody who is willing to help will be most welcome. We would be specially happy to meet somebody who knows about aquaponics and natural ways to filter the water in a fish pond. Furthermore we plan to plant apple/peach and or cherry trees. This could be one of the things for you.
    Another project we are working on is trash management. We use our animal waste as fertilizer and that works well. Unfortunately the household and restaurant is generating some rubbish. Left-over food is being fed to the pigs which is fine. cardboard boxes are collected by recyclers, so that's good. The thing we have too many of are empty glass bottles. Those are not being recycled and just pile up. One of the ideas is to use those bottles to either recycle them into something useful, or make them into an work of art. Maybe both. As you can see there is many things to do. if you are interested, just get in touch. I'm sure we can find something meaningful to do, where you can bring in your talent and past experience. We had guests from all over the world stay with us and each one has been welcomed and had a good time. Btw. Have I mentioned that staying with us is a great way to learn Chinese? I looking forward to hearing from you.
