A new platform to #GrowWWOOF

Our project is to create a world wide common WWOOF platform. With a unique profile across countries, members of our community will be able to interact with each other internationally. It will be easier than ever to go WWOOFing around the world, meet new like-minded friends and share knowledge with farmers.

Thanks to your support, the international WWOOF movement is making great progress with the new website, which will go by the name of Common WWOOF Platform (CWP 2.0).

Q

Here is a brief update on what we have achieved so far...

The plan is to move all WWOOF platforms to a central database and make it possible for WWOOFers to have the same profile wherever and whenever they decide to go WWOOFing.
We structured the development of this complex project into various stages.
The first step was to make sure all data in the current platform is compatible with the new one.

The goal is that every member profile (WWOOFer or host) can be easily migrated and all of your profile data, reviews and messages will be there. In the second stage we’ve made it possible for every national WWOOF organisation’s website to have its individual content while maintaining a common look and feel.

In the third stage we will develop extra features that individual organisations might require and also make sure other tools can easily integrate with the CWP 2.0.After that is complete, we will start the exciting process of onboarding each national organisation to the new platform, country by country.

Over the past several months we successfully completed phase number 1 and are now wrapping up stage number 2, which includes a fully functional prototype of the CWP 2.0 for our guinea pig organisation WWOOF Hungary.

We are looking forward to launching WWOOF Hungary onto the new platform by the end of 2021

With your help, we can make this a reality in 2021.

Since 1971 national WWOOF organisations have been on a mission to educate future organic farmers through hands-on and inspiring cultural exchanges, while supporting local farmers who are feeding their communities and training the next generation.

From the beginning, national WWOOF organisations have sprung up and grown  individually in more and more countries.

This is time for a change in WWOOF. We are planning to unify the movement and build a global WWOOF network.
