WWOOF is a network of national organizations that help volunteers to live and learn on organic properties. WWOOF organizations brings together Hosts and volunteers (WWOOFers) helping each other to make a healthier world. WWOOF organizations also promote cultural understanding of the many diverse peoples and cultures around the world through the intercultural exchange that takes place. WWOOF volunteers (WWOOFers) give time and energy to helping on the farm. If you are interested in environmentally sound living, want to have hands on learning while living in the local community then volunteering with WWOOF might be for you. WWOOF Hosts grow food organically, live sustainably and generally try to live a low impact life. If you want to share your experience of organic growing and can provide healthy meals and a safe, clean place to stay you may like to become a WWOOF host. A strong work ethic is essential and it might be physically demanding, but for some people it can be life changing!

Hi Kirsty, interesting post! Any chance you could find an image to go along with it? Images help grab attention and tell a story with higher impact. You should be able to use the 'Update entry' button on the right of your post and follow the instructions to add images from there. We know occasionally people have issues uploading images so let us know by hitting the Support tab on the left hand side of most pages of our site if you face any problems. Looking forward to seeing more of your inspiring ideas on OpenIDEO.
