We farmers and gardeners are pretty well tied to our land for much of the year, but taking the opportunity to travel and see how others raise crops or livestock can be invaluable. Amy LeBlanc of MOFGA-certified organic Whitehill Farm in East Wilton describes her travels through IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) and WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) in the spring issue of The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener. She says her travels were an "opportunity to be part of a family, its farm, its business and community, and to experience the local culture in a far more down-to-earth and authentic way."
