To extend the value that we deliver to WWOOFers on our farm we are restructuring the arrangement to offer concurrent 88 day programs (comprised of learning modules) that allow for the 3 WWOOFers to work on Synchronicity Farm for 30 hours a week in exchange for food, board and education. In exchange for their commitment, we are able to sign the 1263 Immigration form that provides a 2nd year Working Holiday Visa in Australia for travellers who complete the program.
These workers participate in a program that provides them a diverse series of practical skills and theory in Farming, Food, Permaculture and Sustainability.
Our intention (over time) is to build purpose designed practical, sustainable and comfortable rooms that offer the WWOOFers that participate their own private living space, a shared bathroom and cooking facility, access to facilities (Water, Power, WIFI) and a series of recreational and fun activities built into the program.
Each learning module is to be offered as a stand alone component with unique support material, exercises and projects to be undertaken, a graduation examination and practical. When completing each learning module, the WWOOFer receives a certificate recognising their achievement. Each WWOOFer will need to register for the courses that they are looking to attend. Availability will be determined by the occupancy levels based on accommodation inventory. Options to access the Webinars, Downloads, Blog and Links will become available to each participant on completion of that
At the time of launch, we can also offer WWOOFers not living on Synchronicity Farm to participate in ‘day programs’ depending on position availability. For schools looking to provide a rich learning and practical environment for students the opportunity to book into day programs will also be made available.
