About WWOOF:

"Want to live and learn on organic farms worldwide? Want to share your life with other like-minded people?

 

WWOOF is a worldwide movement linking volunteers with organic farmers and growers to promote cultural and educational experiences based on trust and non-monetary exchange, thereby helping to build a sustainable, global community.

 

As a volunteer, or WWOOFer as we call them, you will live alongside your host helping with daily tasks and experiencing life as a farmer.

 

As a host farm you will open your home to receive visitors from your own country or abroad who want to connect with the land and support the organic movement."

WWOOFers should have the following:

 

  • Interest in experiencing work on an organic vegetable operation

  • Interest in the local, organic food movement and/or food-related issues

  • Ability to work well with a team, a good attitude, communication and organizational skills, as well as be resourceful, self-motivated, and hard-working.

  • Access to transportation
