World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) is a network of organic and sustainable farms that provides volunteers the opportunity to learn about organic farming and sustainable lifestyles while living and working on farms in over 100 countries. In exchange for the volunteer labor, WWOOF hosts provide food and accommodation to WWOOFers staying on their farm. Volunteers usually live as part of the family. WWOOFers choose the host or hosts that most interest them from a list of WWOOF farms and make direct contact to arrange a stay.
Volunteers are responsible for selecting and contacting their host. In order to get in contact with these hosts, it is necessary to sign up for a particular country’s national WWOOF organization, which usually requires a small fee. As a member of a national WWOOF organization, you will receive a list of all hosts receiving volunteers in that country. You can arrange the time and duration of your stay with the individual host.
