How does this work ?
WWOOF allows volunteers to stay on organic farms and join
in with the various projects hosts are busy with. There
is a variety of properties spread throughout France, in which organic growing plays some part.
However, there is no obligation to carry out such tasks, no bound of subordination exists, WWOOF is an exchange, you will be there to learn. There is no money involved, the aim of WWOOF is to share experience in an « ecological » atmosphere.
The main aims of WWOOF are:
- To enable people to learn first hand organic growing
- To enable town-dwellers to experience living and working
on a farm.
- To show alternative ways of life.
- To improve communication within the organic movement.
- To help develop confidence in becoming self-sufficient.
- To meet interesting people and make useful contacts.
If you want to make new friends, learn more about the Organic
world, give back to the country you are traveling in, be
outside most of the time and promoting the environment,
Then subscribe and become a new WWOOFer.

Allowing a WWOOFer to share moments with you is a unique
& unforgettable experience as much as for the traveller
than his host .
Education is the key word. By helping on your property ( gardening, Sowing, Compost making, Feeding Animals,eco-building..), you teach them about biological farming methods, seed saving, natural pest and weed control etc. The WWOOFer usually lives and eats with you.
This meeting is strong in discovery for both of you; you
share, teach your world to a volunteer, eager to learn and
be helpful and you discover also someone with a different
culture and habits..
