Joint Membership with the Land Workers’ Alliance: A New Partnership

Apr 2, 2015

A new partnership has been set up between WWOOF UK and the Land Workers’ Alliance (LWA) whereby new or renewing host members of each organisation can benefit from one year’s FREE membership with the other organisation. So as long as you fit into the criteria of both groups you can get two memberships for the price of one!

‘Joint membership’ offer runs from 1 April 2015 until 1 April 2016

The Landworkers’ alliance are a organisation of people who make their livelihoods from producing food, fuel and fibre using sustainable methods of production. The Landworkers’ Alliance works to raise the profile of the role of small-scale producers and family farms, and the obstacles they face, both to the public and to government. In doing this we campaign for better policy to support small-scale producers and family farms, agro-ecology and food sovereignty.

  • News updates on campaigns

  • Discounts on related courses

  • A voice on the future of agriculture in the UK

  • A sense of solidarity amongst producers with farm walks, skill shares, seed networks etc.

  • An invitation to the AGM and knowledge exchange events
