WorldWide Opportunities on Organic Farms
(WWOOF™) is part of a worldwide movement to link visitors with organic farmers, promote a cultural and educational exchange, and build a global community conscious of ecological farming and sustainability practices.
The founding idea of WWOOF…
…is to facilitate exchanges around organic use of the land in pursuit of living in harmony with nature. WWOOF provides a way for people to learn about organic food, agriculture, and sustainability. In doing so it brings together people who share similar values and philosophies. WWOOF aims to provide helping hands to its hosts and at the same time allows visitors to learn what it means to grow one’s own food sustainably.
