WWOOF USA.. for awhile now and I wanted to spread the word! Recently I had the pleasure of connecting with Tori, their Program Manager, and she did an interview with me.. I wanted all of you to know about WWOOF and how awesome it is!

You can stay on a farm and learn how to grow your own food or you can invite others to stay on yours and share what  ...   tell you more.. Farmer's Market pictures originally from.. this post.. How did WWOOF begin?.. Tori:.. The first WWOOF program was started by London secretary Sue Coppard in the United Kingdom in 1971.. She began Weekend Workers on Organic Farms an idea designed to encourage city folks to experience firsthand the benefits of growing food.. Over 40 years later, WWOOF organizations are now present in more than 50 countries and has grown to be known as Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms , or more simply, WWOOF.. Each country s WWOOF program operates independently, and therefore a membership to WWOOF-USA does not provide access to the WWOOF Host Farm Directory in any other nation.. However, WWOOF groups from around the world collaborate and support each other and our shared mission.. WWOOF-USA was founded in 2001.. Originally launching as WWOOF-California, the non-profit organization quickly grew to accommodate the need for a cohesive nationwide organization.. WWOOF-USA has hosts in all 50 states (including Hawaii and Alaska), Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.. To continue reading, please..
