Be a WWOOF Host
What is a WWOOF Host?: a farmer or grower wishing to host WWOOFers (visitors) and teach them about sustainable agriculture.
WWOOF Sweden publishes a Host Listings that lists organic (certification not required) farms and gardens across the country.
Any organic farm, community or garden project in Sweden that would like to host visitors can participate in the program.
Generally, WWOOFers spend half a day on projects and receive educational opportunities and room and board from their hosts.
Hosts determine their own criteria for accepting WWOOFers and describe their property, location, projects, and more in their Host profile.
WWOOFers look for a compatible host, and contact hosts to discuss arrangements, opportunities, and responsibilities before arrival.
Be a WWOOFer
What is a WWOOFer?: someone visiting a WWOOF Host (organic farmer/grower) to lend a hand to learn about sustainable agriculture.
Immerse yourself in local culture sharing in family, community, and tourist activities while receiving free meals and accommodation.
Gain practical knowledge in biological farming and sustainable living on farms, ranches, homesteads, family gardens, orchards, vineyards, urban gardens, co-operatives, and others - all sharing the WWOOF philosophy.
Please keep in mind that WWOOF is not paid work; hosts do not offer monetary compensation.
We do not make arrangements for you, instead you will make contact with the hosts yourself. Also, you are responsible for obtaining your Visa and paying for your own transportation & personal expenses.
"I'm so impressed by the young, kind, intelligent helpers who chose to visit us. They are true ambassadors from their countries. I have Spain, Germany, Norway, Australia, Japan and Mexico.. Without exception, they were all lovely, kind, helpful young WWOOFers. I feel thankful and humbled as a host to these very bright students from other countries."
"I am looking to become a WWOOF member again. I WWOOFed several years ago in BC, Nova Scotia, Ireland and France. I met my partner when I returned to what was originally a WWOOF farm in Ireland, 10 years after my first visit. He now lives with me in Canada, with our son (now 2) and we're looking to eventually buy our own farm. In the meantime we would like to become WWOOF members in order that we can gain further practical experience and advice before embarking on our big venture." WWOOFer
"Wwoofing for me has been a way of healing, healing on all levels. Physically through the access to good food, emotionally because of all of the love kindness and generosity, and spiritually because of finding outlets for my gifts as a healer, builder and gardener in productive situations."
