Wow that WWOF stuff looks pretty cool. I'll be taking a year off next year after I finish my exam of what is equivilant to American college, and have been thinking about working in a foreígn country. I fantasize about homesteading somewhere in the pacific, probably New Zealand or Australia, and this would give me an opportunity to check out the scenery in real life + learn something... Just gotta make sure its not an organic wheat farm
I've done woof, good for travelling on the cheap and experience different cultures around the world, don't know if I could stop in one place for more than a few weeks at a time though might be a bit tedious, I did a week at a time at a couple of different places in italy
No more diets. No more stress. Health made easy. Living made incredible.
I do need a job - I need to make money but I was thinking of just working part-time wherever I am woofing. I was thinking doing it for 3 months or so but maybe thats not such a good idea... not really sure!
You could always look into Job Corps. They have foresty management, pretty primal I think.
These have all been GREAT suggestions! I moved out to LA about 4 months ago. 3 of those months I moved out on my own away from family. As soon as i moved I got a part time job at Chipotle. For having primal-like food, the work-style was very un-primal. It was a rushed & stressful environment. Sure it was fast paced which could be fun. However, I felt I wasn't taught very well/enough & whenever I'd try to do something right, for example pour sour cream on a burrito. I'd get criticized for taking my time. In all honesty I felt I was on the verge of getting fired if I made one more mistake. On top of all that it still wasn't enough to pay the bills. (I apologize for the small rant.)
However seeing all these possibilities really has me looking at a job that could be better fit for my lifestyle. Music is a constant passion in my life & I have my degree in Recording Arts. But being able to provide & keep myself here is what's most important for me. As long as I'm here opportunities will come to make my passion into a real career.
Probably something like a park ranger, Boy Scouts troop leader, maybe firefighter. There's also logging. Tour guide for national forest/park. Maybe one of those people that leads people up mountains to climb.
I'd just go for something outdoorsy. I think back to firefighter because it requires a lot of raw strength. You have to pass a physical fitness test to even be considered for the job, and of course it feels good to help people.
Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

Cook. If I had it to do all over, I'd ditch college and go to culinary school. Start at 22, work your ass off while using the best ingredients available. @35, open your own place and drive yourself batshit (it's very competitive). But I'd be cooking beautiful food and not poisoning anyone for profit.
