WWOOFing North & South
Margaret's latest book
WWOOFing North and South. May 2016.
WWOOF= Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms. WWOOFing North and South, Margaret Halliday’s third book, describes her experience of being a WWOOFer in New Zealand and Scotland. Margaret travels widely in both countries, using a mixture of public transport, her bicycle and a van, which she buys in New Zealand and in which she sleeps. She encounters an eclectic mix of people and animals. She gets butted by a billy goat, chased by geese, mobbed by chickens; swims with seals, explores New Zealand’s wilderness, gets close to sudden death and deepens her understanding of the meaning of life.
Her work places include Scottish crofts, market gardens, retreat centres and organic farms, while her accommodation ranges from basic caravans to mansions. This book will appeal to, and maybe inspire, anyone contemplating an alternative lifestyle or a different way of travelling. WWOOFing can be undertaken in many countries, allowing people of all ages and backgrounds to experience a variety of cultures, leading to a profounder acceptance of the world.
