Farm Volunteering with Leah Michelsen

By Luke Richardson

Leah has travelled the US, Canada and Europe volunteering on organic farms. In this interview she talks about why it's a great way to travel, how it provides a unique perspective on a new place, connects you with great people, and builds up a really good appetite.  I've found every interview I've done on this podcast inspiring. But after talking to Leah, I've actually booked a few days volunteering on a farm here in England. I love the idea of trying something I've never done before, and getting away from my laptop. I'll tell you how I get on in a future episode.  The podcast is sponsored by Bookitlist  If you’re looking for unique travel adventures both near and far, make your first port of call.
