New to travel and heading to southern Arizona in March. Seeking friends and ways to sell/trade art so I'm not broke as fuck while I'm out there. Some things about me mmm I enjoy camping, trash punk, swing dancing.. any kind of dancing/live music, art, booze, belching buggos and sunshine. I dislike being cold and the fact that I lose my belongings on a daily basis but it is what it is. I'll be living on a farm once I get out to AZ so any advise for farm life is also appreciated.
Psyched to be part of the gang ::drinkingbuddy::
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

I found it through Attra. (Similar to wwoofing) It's an all organic farm, no livestock just fruits and veggies. I've been talking with the owner and he said since were in the desert we typically get up very early especially in the summer to escape the hottest part of the day. What kind of farms have you been on? This is my first farm

if you have time afterwards, you might want to share your experiences working there (photos are a plus as well!). people ask about farms, woofing and related subjects here a LOT and any experiences (good or bad) you want to share with the community is always helpful :)

I grew up on a small farm with my family. It was really just a hobby farm more or less, just a couple hundred chickens, 20ish goats, peacocks, etc. They made some bucks at it though. But I've also worked on Christmas tree farms and helped at a potato farm and a nursery. No matter what type of farm I was helping at, I was starting bright and early! I find it to be enjoyable work though. Hope you do too!

you'll be getting here right when it starts to really heat up. farm work sounds cool, but i'm not sure about doing it here in the summer. attitudes in az are not really in favor of travelers unless you are in a big new rv. i just got stopped and hassled by cops in a small town this morning. i'm not sure if i'll still be here, i'm still debating my next move, but if you find yourself near phx beer is on me.

Thank you much! :)I'm a morning person and I love working outside so I'm hoping this will be a very enjoyable experience!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
