WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) is an international movement that connects visitors (called WWOOFers) with organic farmers and growers. The organization was founded in 1971 in the UK and has since grown to include more than 130 countries.
WWOOF offers people the opportunity to live and learn on organic farms in exchange for room and board. Visitors help out for a few hours a day with a wide range of tasks such as planting, harvesting, and caring for animals. In return, hosts provide accommodation and meals for the duration of the stay.
WWOOF provides a unique opportunity for people to learn about organic farming, sustainable living, and cultural exchange. It is a great way to travel, meet new people, and gain hands-on experience in agriculture and permaculture. People can choose from a variety of farms and locations based on their interests and preferences.
The WWOOF network operates on a membership system, with WWOOFers and hosts paying a small fee to join the organization. This fee helps support the running of the WWOOF website. To learn more, please visit wwoof.net or wwoofusa.org.
