Wwoofing

WWOOF (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms) is an international organization that matches volunteers with farms all over the world who are looking for extra hands. The volunteer (typically) receives room and board for a set number of works hours per week, with stays ranging in length from a week to a season or more.

Basically, the articles below approach the topic from two angles: 1. advice for finding and setting up a wwoofing experience and making sure it’s a positive one, and 2. roundups of wwoofing opportunities in different parts of the world.
