Over the years we have learnt that ninety-nine percent of new hosts hear about WWOOF through WWOOFers or established hosts, proving that ‘word of mouth’ is the most effective advertising tool. In 2014, our ‘recommend a friend’ (RAF) offer saw seventeen new hosts join the WWOOF UK family. One of our new hosts from the RAF offer are Catherine and Keith of Folly Cottage near Cambridge.
Folly Cottage, a house and garden host, joined in March 2014 and have had well over two hundred enquiries already! Keith says they have had seven WWOOFers so far, some from USA, New Zealand and Germany. He finds it fascinating to hear about his WWOOFers’ lives and Catherine and he have thoroughly enjoyed the WWOOF experience so far. They will definitely be continuing to host for the foreseeable future.
It’s great to hear such positive feedback about our members’ experiences. If you think you know someone who would make a good host, encourage them to join us, and if their application is approved, you will receive a year’s free membership! This offer is running until the end of May 2015.
