Harvesting honey on Kangaroo Island
Here's an excerpt from the article to whet your palate:
"Unzipping my bee veil, I popped a piece of fresh honeycomb in my mouth. The nectar, warmed by the South Australian winter sun, was delicate, perhaps because it's produced by the only purebred population of Ligurian bees on the planet. Or perhaps it's because I, a worker bee from the city, harvested it."
WWOOFing helped me travel the globe, volunteering on all sorts of farms, from coffee plantations in Thailand to wineries in the Barossa Valley. It's a great way to give back to the farming community while having a truly unique agrotourism experience on the cheap.
