Information for Woofers
Want to come and learn with us? We are happy to welcome WOOFERS/ travelers willing to pull their weight, share their wisdom, and humble themselves through the process of cultural, technical, and spiritual exchange.
About the Farm
Currently, the farm is not, well, quite a farm. We have begun planting pumpkins, okra, beans, maize, sunflowers, melons, fruit trees (bananas, guavas, mangos, avocados, papayas, citrus, other local fruits), and leguminous trees to build up soil health. Meanwhile, we have been reading lots of permaculture books in preparation for developing our garden.
Where are we?
Our farm is located about 14 KM to the North of Kasama (using Lukupa Road). We are located on the beautiful, meandering Lukupa River. The easiest way to arrive is just to contact us, and we will meet you in Kasama Town.
What’s the WOOFing Experience Like?
Good question! That depends mostly on you, your skills, and the work and experience we are seeking. We have lots of work to do, and as we are just settling in, the list is quite dynamic and constantly changing. Rather than describing too much here, it is best to discuss personally with each potential visitor, so we can describe what projects are currently on-going, and tailor your time so that we can best facilitate and utilize your skills. Please note that we eat a very local diet here at the farm including Nshima, (the Zambian staple food) and lots of beans, as well as seasonal treats such as fresh greens, caterpillars, small fish, and local mushrooms. We are currently asking that WOOFERs contribute a small amount of money so that we can provide food, as we have not yet begun making an income as a farm. Again, each situation and WOOFer is unique, and we are flexible.
There are many unique experiences available in Kasama to savvy travelers. Such opportunities include a visit to the spectacular Chishimba Falls, 10,000 year old (so they say) rock paintings, village visits, swimming in Lukupa River, and many other in-promtu adventures.
The easiest and most immediate way to get a hold of us is to call.
