World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF), or Willing Workers on Organic Farms, is a loose network of national organizations that facilitate placement of volunteers on organic farms. Australia with 2,600 hosts has the most host farms and enterprises, followed by New Zealand with 2,340 and United States with 2,052 hosts. The UK has 688 WWOOF hosts.
WWOOF aims to provide volunteers (often called “WWOOFers” or “woofers”) with first-hand experience in organic and ecologically sound growing methods, to help the organic movement; and to let volunteers experience life in a rural setting or a different country. WWOOF volunteers generally do not receive financial payment. The host provides food, accomodations, and opportunities to learn, in exchange for assistance with farming or gardening activities.
