Last month I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Chrissie Reilly, a doctoral student working on an oral history project of WWOOF (Worldwide Workers on Organic Farms) Japan. Chrissie, a WWOOFer herself, aims to see how WWOOF Japan impacts participants as well as the farms and communities where they volunteer.

The hubby and I spoke with Chrissie about our experience WWOOFing a few years ago, farming in Japan, food, and culture. It was good fun, and I'm excited to see what will come of it.

If you're reading this and you've WWOOFed in Japan, send along a message and I can put you in touch with Chrissie directly. She's still interviewing her little heart out, and I'm sure she'd love to chat with you about your experience!

Thank you so much for meeting with me! I had a great time interviewing you two, and I always learn so much from talking to people.
