Mission

Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) is 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 sustainable living and organic agriculture in pursuit of living in harmony with nature. WWOOF provides a way for people to learn about organic food, farming, and culture. 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.

WWOOF started 50 years ago and has grown to a worldwide community of hundreds of thousands of people today. From the beginning, national WWOOF organisations grew individually in countries but with a shared  mission to educate people through hands-on and inspiring cultural exchanges, and support local farmers who are feeding their communities and training the next generation of farmers.

In 2012, the Federation of WWOOF Organisations (FoWO) was created to act as a democratic organisation for national WWOOF groups to work together worldwide. FoWO’s mission is to unite, promote, protect and support the WWOOF movement around the world.
