Finca paradise found PAN022, Johanna Blumenschein.

We hope this message will be take in consideration.

Josephine, my guirlfriend and me spent 2 weeks in this place. It's not a place to be wwoofeur, it's a place to be a slave!

We use to be volunteers in lot of different place and we never saw that! Johanna ask hard physical work without any help. She never help the volunteer, she never spend time with the volunteer, she is never welcoming! She has in her farm lot of interesting activities but it's a dream to think she will share her knowledge even if you do your best for her. She prefers use you than an employed to do the things that she doesn't want to do.

The "volunteers house" is in reality a small and basic shed without electricity and water. We slept  in a uncomfortable single bed share shared between two people. You have to wash and shower with colected rain water which depending of the weather could run out... It happened for us with 2 weeks without rain and 4 people for one small empty water tank... We were forced to walkl 200 metres with small botle to bring back water from their own private suply.

For each meals, we felt like we had to bag for food, it was never offer to us in advance. It was really difficult to get enough vegetables. We were living on rice and banana...

Finaly when you had enough of the experience, she ask you to pay 50 dollards to leave the farm with her boat. (50 dollards for 15 minutes...)

Its was our worse experience in volunteering ever. We hope this review will stop others to make the same mistake we did and i hope Johanna can use this feedback constructively..

We wanted to share our expérience in Quiche Organico farm, Guatemala, host: Ron Spector. (GUA027)

We have a lot of expérience wwoofing but this one was the worst.

First of all: you have to pay 20 quetzal per day and this information is not written on his profile page. He told us the day we arrived. You also have to pay for your day off (if you have one) even if you eat outside, you have to pay.

About the work: Ron is totally unorganized. We only did watering and weeding for 1 week. Be ready to water ALL day because Ron as an obssesion with that.

About the food: it's really healthy but it's always thé same thing: rice, kale, bean. Every day.

About Ron: he change mood all thé time. He can be nice and interesting as rude and mean.

Be prepared to be told 3 Times a day "Wash your hand" . Be prepared to be told 3 Times a day how to Wash dishes..

We had good conversation with him until we didn't know something. He can make you feel stupid. We felt really uncomfortable with him.

We think he is not ready to host wwoofer. He seems to prefer living alone.

Good point: we respect his way of living as self suffisant : compost toilettes, shower outside, no electricity...

The place is really beautiful but for us it wasn't enought to enjoy because the goal of wwoofing is to share and there is nothing about sharing in this place.

We couldn't stay more than 1 week.

We put this comment today because we would have like to have all this information before sending request.
