Monkton Wyld CourtThere’s still time to book to attend our AGM;
if you are quick there should be space for you to join us for the event which this year will be hosted by Monkton Wyld Court at Charmouth in Dorset. 
 

The date: 20th-21st September.  


Online booking is available via our website – you will need to log into your account to register – or you can send your details and payment through the post to the office (to be received by 12th September); the address is: PO Box 2154, Winslow, Bucks MK18 3WS. If you have any queries about the AGM please use us agm2014@wwoof.org.uk to contact us. 

We are busy confirming details of the timetable and entertainment and are very pleased to be able to bring the AGM closer to our many southern and West Country hosts and WWOOFers. The WWOOF UK team is looking forward to meeting many of you, although the event is, of course, open to all our members.

Monkton Wyld Court is an educational charity and WWOOF host run by a resident community with the help of short- and medium-term volunteers. They work to develop and promote a lifestyle based on mutual respect for each other and for the natural environment, and strive to live sustainably. Income is generated through a varied programme of educational courses, family activity holidays, other events, bed and breakfast and hostel accommodation. The Court is a Victorian rectory with workshops and working farm buildings. The grounds include terraced lawns, woods, pasture, a stream and a Victorian walled garden.
