And Austrian Woofers on western Newfoundland farm:
“Manuela and Katharina Priensperger are taking their love of agriculture and gardening across Canada.

Manuela, 24, and Katharina, 21, are from Rechnitz, Austria and they are volunteering with three organic farms in Canada through the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms organization.

Their latest stint began at Full Tilt Creative Centre on Aug. 4 and ends Wednesday.

They have spent time on organic farms in Ontario and Alberta before landing in Deer Lake en route to McIver’s.”
