WWOOFING? WTF is WOOFING? Well…it means: WORLD WIDE OPPORTUNITIES on ORGANIC FARMS. The truth is when it comes to WWOOFING it’s almost ALWAYS an AWESOME opportunity to venture to a place outside your comfort zone and head to a place you wouldn’t normally be able to afford and visit by staying an extended time in a beautiful place where you can learn about Organic farming, see how locals live in the area, may it be a state or country, meet and connect with new people from around the world and be given House and Board for the labor you put into the farm…You learn and grow as a person and the Farm Grows and gets your services for free for giving you a place to live and food…often the organic food you grow and pick…BUT…


Things don’t always go as planned…and sometimes, even if it’s only about 5-10% of the time, things can go SERIOUSLY WRONG as happened in the case we are going to talk about today with Hannah Brooke Bergeron, who we helped get out of a seriously NASTY WOOFING SCAM here in Hawaii on the Westside of Oahu in Makaha Valley! Remember…WWOOFING IS SAFE and it’s AWESOME…but always remember to DO YOUR RESEARCH…9 times out of 10 you are GOLDEN, but you never know for sure like Hannah found out…So do your research and stay safe out there everyone!

In 1778, Captain James Cook arrived at Waimea Bay, he was the first European known to reach the Hawaiian islands and Kauai was the first island he visited. He named the Hawaiian Islands after his patron the Earl of Sandwich. At the time the Hawaiian Islands had been called the SANDWICH ISLANDS.

During the reign of King Kamehameha,  the islands of Kauaʻi and Niʻihau were the last Hawaiian Islands to join the UNITED KINGDOM of HAWAII Their ruler, Kaumuali’i resisted Kamehameha for years. King Kamehameha twice prepared a huge armada of ships and canoes to take the islands by force, and failed; once due to a storm, and the other because of an island wide epidemic. In the face of a third attempt to take Kauai and Ni’ihau by Kamehameha, Kaumualiʻi decided to surrender and join the kingdom of Hawaii without bloodshed in 1810.
