Kiwi Down Under have been hosting Willing Workers On Organic Farms since the 1980’s. Over those years, Marguerite & Tom have hosted hundreds of helpers/backpackers who have travelled through Coffs Harbour and the Mid North Coast. At KDU there are so many aspects of farming that helpers enjoy the variety of tasks offered plus get the opportunity to learn and experience a commercial farm using organic/biodynamic farming and permaculture methods, first hand. Tom and Marguerite are pioneers in their field of organic farming and are happy to teach and pass on their knowledge plus they always enjoy show casing their town to travellers.
Photos of some of our wonderful Wwoofers and HelpX over the years. I wish we had taken more photos! Such amazing memories!
In 2015, Wwoofail – an Irish, TV reality show, chose KDU as one of six farms in Australia to film an episode in their third season about Wwoofers. “It was an amazing experience and so much fun”. ‘Said Marguerite’. The show was aired in Ireland in April, 2016 on TG4.
KDU has self contained accommodation (called Mango Cottage) for their Wwoofers and can take up to 4 Wwoofers at a time. Usually visitors stay for 2 weeks and some have stayed up to 3 months.
