WWOOFáil

WWOOFáil

WWOOFáil CALIFORNIA follows TG4 weather girl Máiréad Ní Chuaig and Hollwood based actor Donegal native Gavin Ó Fearraigh on their American road trip, as they step out of the studio and into the world of organic farming, ready to get their hands dirty in search of new adventures.

WWOOFáil CALIFORNIA consists of six half hour episodes that will be sure to keep the viewers intrigued as we see Máiréad and Gavin travel from the sunny surfing beaches of southern California to northern California’s cowboy country, visiting an array of unique farms during their road trip, making new friends and learning new farming skills.

Along their journey they will fish for salmon with the local Yurok Tribe in Klamath, whale watch in Morro Bay, help in the production of organic wine in Sonoma County and roller skate at San Francisco’s famous Church of Eight Wheels among numerous activities during their adventure.

WWOOF stands for ‘World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms’ and ‘WWOOFers’ travel to participating WWOOF member farms to exchange their labour for bed and board. The movement began in the 1970s and today there are approximately 11,000 affiliated hosts in almost 100 countries and participants choose their routes according to the seasonal climate and farming cycle.

 


 

Téann WWOOFáil CALIFORNIA  ar thuras le cailín na haimsire ag TG4, Mairéad Ní Chuaig, agus leis an aisteoir Gavin Ó Fearraigh agus iad ar aistear bóthair i Meiriceá. Fágann siad beirt slán leis an stiúideo ar feadh tamaill agus tugann a n-aghaidh ar an bhfeirmeoireacht orgánach agus ar eachtraí nua spleodracha.

Sé chlár leath uair an chloig atá i WWOOFáil CALIFORNIA a mbeidh an lucht féachana sáite ann agus Mairéad agus Gavin ag dul ó thránna órga California theas go tír na mbuachaillí bó i dtuaisceart an stáit. Tugann an bheirt cuairt ar fheirmeacha suimiúla ar a n-aistear bóthair, agus iad ag bualadh le cairde nua agus ag cur lena gcuid scileanna feirmeoireachta ar an mbealach.

Tabharfaidh siad faoi eachtraí agus gníomhaíochtaí suimiúla ar a n-aistear.  Rachaidh siad ag iascaireacht bhradán leis an treabh áitiúil Yurok i Klamath, caithfidh siad seal i gcuan Morro ag breathnú ar mhíolta móra,  tabharfaidh siad lámh chúnta agus fíon orgánach á déanamh i Sonoma County, agus bainfidh siad triail as roller skating ag an ionad cáiliúil, Church of Eight Wheels i San Francisco.

Seasann WWOOF do “World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms” agus téann Wwoofers ar cuairt chuig na feirmeacha, ag fáil leaba agus béilí ar son an láimh chúnta a thugann siad féin ar an bhfeirm. Sna naoi déag seachtóidí a cuireadh tús leis an gcleachtas an chéad lá riamh agus tá thart ar aon mhíle dhéag óstach bainteach leis in os cionn céad tír ar fud an domhain. Roghnaíonn na Wwoofers a bhfeirm bunaithe ar aeráid an tséasúir agus timthriall na feirmeoireachta.
