Gifts for Wwoofers

This April it will be two years since we first welcomed Wwoofers (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) into our home and hearts.

They come to us to help maintain our property and in return we provide accommodation and meals.

Through this organisation we have met people from Japan, Switzerland, England, Austria, Germany, Sweden, USA, Canada and France.  It has always proven to be an exercise greatly appreciated on both sides, if return visits are anything to go by.

At the end of this month we have two German girls coming who were with us a while back.  They have travelled the South Island and on their return have requested to come back to us.  We will gladly receive them.  They, among others, have proved to be very willing workers at our place.

In appreciation of their time with us we like to send Wwoofers away with a small gift that won't take up too much room in their baggage but will provide a memory of their time in New Zealand.

We make them mug rugs - something to have their coffee or tea on with a snack.

We like to think that when they return to their home country and resume their work or study life they will use these and remember their experiences in New Zealand.

What a great idea! The workers will love them.

A lovely little memento of time spent in New Zealand - it's a great idea.
