(OrganicJar) WWOOF, it stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. I hadn’t heard of this organization until today when I came across it while doing some research. I figured it would be interesting to do a quick post on. Basically, it’s an organization that networks people who have a passion for organic farming with farmers who are in need of volunteer help. Here is some quick info. about it:
Where: It’s anywhere; there are farms in need of your help and enthusiasm for organic farming all over. From Denmark, Canada, Ecuador, Sierra Leone to the Philippines.
When: You can sign up anytime, you just have to go to the country specific website and initiate the process.
What: Typically the host farm will provide lodging and food. You may also acquire new skill sets regarding the operation of an organic farm.
Why: Maybe you need a 1 month or 3 month break from the drudgery of your current job. In most instances, you’ll be forging new friendships and allow cross-cultural exchange to take place.
How: Here is their website; check it out or maybe you have someone you know who may be interested. http://www.wwoof.org/
