Intern Army of One

So I got the internship. I'm here in Sterling, Ontario near Belleville working at a little organic farm that runs a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program and a B&B out of their hundred some odd year old field stone home. There is plenty going on here. There are currently two other interns and three WWOOFers. The owners are British but were running a lodge at the base of Mount Kenya for many years before they came to Canada. We start early in the morning but after lunch at 1:00 the day is mine to do as I please. Obviously the pay is not great but an income at least. The food has been fantastic, the conversation enlightening, and I am currently surrounded by beautiful women. I discovered that my host and two of the WWOOFers are Vipassana veterans which is a nice common reference point. There is plenty of home made wine going around here and just down the lane I discovered a somewhat hidden patch of green. That might be fun. I'll be here for another thirteen weeks, then who knows. I'd like to maybe get a job at a ski hill for the winter. Not sure how easy that would be or how soon I will need to get that going. I need to get cracking on the book. I'm just happy to be employed. Hope everyone reading is doing well.

I visited your website earlier today and found some useful information related to WWOOF on the same.

I have created a website where I have uploaded articles on WWOOF. It also has a report on WWOOF Fundaments which gives the basics of WWOOF, its aims, benefits, etc. Here is the link to the report

It would be great if you could add a link to this report on your website. I am sure your visitors will find the information in this report useful.

Relevant information about my website is given below:
Site title: Organic Facts
Description: Source of factual information on different aspects of Organic Living including Organic Food, Organic Gardening, Organic Stores, WWOOF and Organic Cosmetics.

I look forward to your reply.
