Want to Work on an Organic Farm this summer?

Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms, USA (WWOOF - USA) is part of a world-wide effort to link volunteers with organic farmers, promote an educational exchange, and build a global community conscious of ecological farming practices.

The WWOOF program was started in the U.K. in 1971, under the name 'Working Weekends On Organic Farms.' Since then WWOOF programs have been started in over twenty-eight countries. WWOOF USA, an independent project of the Ecological Farming Association, helps provide the opportunity for anyone interested in organic farming and gardening to experience a life on a working organic farm. Their program is available to anyone over eighteen years of age, experienced or not. Volunteers work for half of each day, helping with farm work and projects as needed. In exchange, farmers provide volunteers with meals and accommodation.

The WWOOF USA Directory of Organic Host Farms contains descriptions of over 200 participating farms. For more information, or to list your farm as a destination, visit their website.
