    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi! My name is Wilke Strydom. I stayed on a farm in the Karoo with my family, and now its time to spread my wings! People describe me as hardworking, loyal and passionate.
    I want to visit farms all around the country to see how other people farm and to gain more experience. Up to date, I visited a pecan nut, maize and wheat farm, a goat and sheep Karoo farm, and a sheep farm in the Vrystaat. I definitely learned a lot and can't wait to learn new things!
    I'm really passionate about caring for our planet, living sustainable and to produce healthy food for this hungry world of ours. I also love animals and plants. I also took a permaculture design course a few years ago.
    I'm new to this website but we had several work-awayers staying on our farm in the past.
