Volunteer Vacations: Organic Farms

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)
submitted by Misi

While planning for a summer vacation we found a great way to enjoy going on trips and save lots of money!

*  *  *

Working on an organic farm in exchange for room and board!

There are farms to choose from all over the world. Food and accommodations are included. You must be 18 or older or accompanied by an adult (some farms allow children, others don't so please ask that question if you find a farm that you like).

This is a wonderful way to be green, reduce your carbon footprint, and get away for a more affordable vacation.

I hope this tip helps a lot of families. Americans do not vacation nearly enough and we need it. Our health and overall enjoyment of life demands that we take more vacations.

Here's a great resource to learn more...

Editor's Note: At the time of this writing there are 1650 farms listed in the USA. I checked for locations in our home state of Georgia, and, they are REAL farms! For participating Organic Farms in the USA, visit wwoofusa.org. You do not have to be a member to find the farms. Check the map for the farm names, then do a google search to check them out. ;o)
