In Episode 6 of Volunteer Stories I interview Maggy and Markus who have both volunteered on farms.
Maggy contacted Campus and City Radio 94.4 saying she wanted to be on Volunteer Stories. I was super excited to have someone request to be on the show! It was the first time someone had asked. In 2015 Maggy volunteered in the UK for 4.5 months and Ireland for 4 months. During that time she volunteered on 3 horse farms helping with tasks such as mucking out, grooming and exercising the horses.
I met Markus at a party. Usually within 5 minutes of meeting a new person I tell them about my radio show! In 2008 Markus travelled to New Zealand with Experiment to volunteer on a sheep farm for 3 weeks. His main tasks were looking after sheep and removing invasive plant species.
