FoWO host grant

Apr 12, 2015

FoWO (Federation of WWOOF Organisations) is offering a grant of €500 (courtesy of WWOOF Portugal) to help a host with a development project.

 

The programme awards grants for special projects that help further the WWOOF movement, enhance the educational experience of visiting WWOOFers on host farms, and promote small-scale organic agriculture. It encourages WWOOFer involvement in the execution and outcome of the funded project, and proposals from hosts who are in need and are committed to the goals of WWOOF. 

Examples might include (but are not limited to) the creation of new habitats (wildflower meadows?), herb spirals, forest gardens or raised beds, tree planting projects, building compost toilets (or bins), water harvesting, creating or improving WWOOFer accommodations, and alternative pest control.
