World Wide Opportunities on Organic farms (WWOOF) is a worldwide movement linking volunteers (WWOOFers) with organic farmers and growers to promote cultural and educational experiences based on trust and non-monetary exchange, thereby helping to build a sustainable, global community.
WWOOF started in UK, 1971 by a Briton; Sue Coppard as a Willing Weekend workers on Organic farms, today has become global movement with presence in over 200 countries.
WWOOF started its operation in Nigeria, 2010 by an organic advocator Olatilo Benjamin. Since 2010 and up to date has received WWOOFers across the globe and participated in many national and International conferences.
WWOOF is a cultural exchange. We have lists of organic growers and farmers who need help in many countries – and people who are willing to offer it in return for food, accommodation and the opportunity to learn about a different way of life.
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 Farmers (‘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, Join you us to become a WWOOF host
