We met for coffee on the sunny terrace of Carnon beach just in front of the port. Marion is a vegetarian and a healthy food artist. She expresses her creativity through beautiful gourmand dishes, prepared with bio products from local farms. Eco -nomical and -logical, that’s how she calls it
Smiling and radiant as usual, Marion just returned from her another one wwoofing experience. While making her portrait, I listened to her stories about the people she met on these farms, their economic models and education techniques, examples of positive transformations experienced by volunteers and hosts on these organic farms. Like the transformation that happens with that guy, previously the homeless desperate junky, converted himself into a cook. He cooks for farms stuff and for children who come for different farm’s workshops. Now he is happy to be useful for a society that doesn’t reproach him for past errors and fails. The wwoofing economic model assumes hosts trust volunteers unconditionally, and we can see how in reality this faith in a better human yields the fruits of beautiful gratefulness.
Marion’s next stop is the brewery at the east of France. I can’t wait to hear from her, and I hope to join her soon in this inspiring wwoofing adventure!
