私も旅好きで20代半ばまであちらこちら住込み季節労働などしました。
今は百姓として定住してますので、自分の放浪時代にお世話になった人たちへの恩返しのつもりでウーファーの方を受入れたいと思います。
私たちは百姓としての経験も浅く、試行錯誤続けています。
私たちの仕事を見られて、いろいろ改善点や効率的でない面も感じられるでしょう。それはそれで意見を頂けるとありがたいですが、「自分が百姓として実践するとしたらどういうかたちが創れるか?」という謙虚な気持ちで滞在してもらえるほうが私たちにとっては一緒に暮らしやすいです。

Please come here casually.
Will you join us for hyakusyo working?
