WWOOFING in Matakana…

I am currently on my first WWOOFING experience in New Zealand. I am on a small orchard farm north of Auckland in a tiny town called Matakana.

The property has a house and an art/pottery studio. As a WWOOFER you are required to work for three/five hours a day and in turn are given free accommodation and meals. The first days were spent weeding the massive gardens and on a rainy day cleaning the kitchen. 

The owners are successful artists and have a huge art studio on their property. 

They have a dog named Vinny and a black cat.
