After some soul searching, inspiration from our close friends, and moving from the swampland of Louisiana to the Rockies of Colorado for the outdoor activities. We are all in our mid-twenties and taking this opportunity to see the country, learn about sustainability, and meet incredible people.
In our journey we want to learn about self-sustainability, primitive skills, and gardening from all aspects. Gandhi said, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." Well, we are taking that to heart. As a group we are all interested in making our carbon footprint as small as possible. (With exception of Teddy because he hauls us around) WWOOF is changing our lives for the betterment of Mother Earth and ourselves. We have finally found the direction we want to point our lives in.
We have spent the past quarter of a century not fully appreciating this beautiful earth we live on, but we have decided to make the rest of our time here count. The mountains taught us how big the earth really is and that we are truly at the mercy of this planet. We should respect and live for her because without her generosity we wouldn't be here. We want to learn all of the things there are to learn about being self-sustaining and hopefully be able to live off the grid one day.
We only get one chance to write our story, and ours just got started!!
