Dear Danielle,

I'm Indian citizen, holding Indian passport, presently in India and have travelled to Europe/Caribbean many times and now planning to explore Canada.

I would like to live and work in rural environment and willing to learn.

Is it possible to WWOOF for around an year in your farm in exchange of food and accommodation.

Kindly see the link for my job profile in https://seekers.jobbank.gc.ca/profil-profile/apercu-preview.aspx?pid=957792

Waiting for reply.
With kind regards.

Hey Gilles!

Thanks for your offer.
Hope you have gone through my post, I wanna WWOOF for around an year or more. Is it OK for you?.

I'm also trying my best to find farm job in eastern part of Canada at whatever salary to save some money because it's my dream to make my second home at this part of Canada which is vast in natural beauty.

I came back last week from Italy and France trip and now planning to visit Canada end of next month any date if everything goes well with my Canada visa which I hope embassy will issue me after seeing my passport and travel history.

How is the weather there in summer and Winter?.

Hope to hear from you.
Best wishes.
Raju

Hello Raju,
You can stay for one year it is funny because i was thinking to have a room mate in my house. I have a little farm i grow vegetable and do CSA (community share agriculture) I don't make a lot a money so i can't pay you but we can arange somting in exchange fort the food and accomodation. You can find work around my place.
Here the weather is nice in summer time but winter is prety cold nut much to do except cut some wood in fall befor the snow.
Here the language that we speak is french i can teach you. But i do speak English.
I want to form and eco-community here

best wisches

Hey Gilles!

Your offer sounds great, I like to meet other woofers and members of CS to share work and travel stories and also getting opportunity to learn french language.

How much farm land do you have, how many hours in a week to work and working hours are flexible?.

Its a nice idea to make Eco-community, did you ever thought about developing something like camping sites to promote rural tourism?.

Just now I got an information from Canadian Embassy that they can issue me visitor visa but I cannot stay more then 6 months in a year or I must have a work offer along with LMO to stay for an year.

Can it possible to make a deal like work offer, food and accommodation in exchange of working in your farm?.

As you mentioned that I can also try to find work somewhere around your place. Hope it wont be a problem for you if I work few hours every day in your farm and few in other where I can get some money if I find otherwise OK to work full time with you.

You can write me privately and hope we can find out some way.

Waiting for reply.
Best Wishes.
Raju
