This is what can happen when hosts and WWOOFers work together for the very best experience. 

In July this year at the age of 75 I had my first WWOOFer experience while visiting the UK. Andrea and Matt of Lower Shaw Farm, Swindon were my wonderful hosts and made me most welcome. By tailoring their work requirements to my abilities it was a win/win for all of us. A fabulous experience and one I would strongly recommend to all seniors who are still out there looking for fun, travel and adventure. Glenys Russell, Western Australia.

 
Have had the notice of membership renewal but, as you will appreciate, would only be doing this when next travelling; will certainly be looking for opportunities here in Australia.
 
In a recent email to your editor, Glenys confided that she wished she could spend her whole life WWOOFing!
