WWOOFing with a family

Jul 13, 2015

We are often asked by potential WWOOFers if it’s possible to bring their children and what it would be like if they did. We know that just over a third of our hosts have said they welcome children ‘by arrangement’ but we don’t always know how it works out. 

Adele Jarrett-Kerr and her family WWOOFed for the first time this year and she has written this wonderful blog. It worked out pretty well for them! 

Have you had experience of WWOOFing with children – either as a host or a WWOOFer? Let us know how it went for you – leave a comment below or use info@wwoof.org.uk to tell us more.
