Photo: LIZ BROOK A German zoo-keeper took a step out of her comfort zone during her trip to New Zealand to help out on a Feilding farm. Karoline Doerpinghaus worked on Liz Brook's organic farm as part of the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) programme. The 22-year-old, who worked as a zoo- keeper in Germany, said it was the highlight of her trip. Karoline came to New Zealand to see the country and improve her English. However, it was difficult to practise her English because she was surrounded by other German tourists. It was so easy to talk English with them [on the farm].'' As well as working on her speech, she gained a lot of valuable experience working on farms. Karoline wanted to train as a vet, so working with the sheep on Liz's farm, and nursing a sick lamb, was a beneficial experi- ence for her. I helped with the sheep, we did a lot of repairs, and looked after the vege garden,'' she said. Karoline said the organic idea, and homeopathy, really interested her. The young German had travelled the North Island, and was heading on to the South Island this week. During her time in the country she had kayaked and hiked the Tongariro crossing. Karoline hoped to spend some time at Auck- land Zoo, working in the clinic, before she went home. It would be very interesting for me,'' she said. Karoline is going back to her home country to train as a veterinarian, however, she planned to return to New Zealand one day. She enjoyed her trip around the country, but was looking forward to home, as she experienced some homesickness during her first big trip overseas, and away from her parents. Liz Brook, who belonged to the New Zea- land WWOOF Association, said she had hosted many German WWOOFers this year. Liz gave the workers free board in exchange for their help on her 68-hectare, solar- powered, sheep farm. Some of the volunteer workers had to be told what to do every step of the way, Liz said. However, Karoline had shown initiative and worked hard. She just fitted in.'' Liz said she preferred women WWOOFers, and she only took them on during the sum- mer. She also tried to show her workers the real New Zealand, so when she travelled or went to local events, any WWOOFers staying with her usually went along.
