members weekend and AGM

Aug 31, 2015

We are all looking forward to WWOOF UK’s membership weekend and AGM which will this year be hosted by Old Chapel Farm at Llanidloes, in Powys, Wales 

The date: 26-27 September 2015

Online booking is available via our website and places are filling up fast so book as soon as you can. You need to log in to your WWOOF UK account and click on the Register Now button to book. There’s a travel forum for the event and you can find that by using the Get a lift to the AGM link on your personal menu. 

We are very pleased to be able to bring the event closer to our many Welsh, Midlands and Welsh/English border hosts and WWOOFers and look forward to meeting lots of you, but the event is open to members from anywhere, of course. 
 
Our membership weekend has been growing in popularity over the last few years and provides an opportunity to meet with other WWOOFers, hosts and the WWOOF UK team, listen to talks and make merry with like-minded people. Our keynote speakers will be representatives from the Landworkers’ Alliance and the Groundspring Network. There will be a local band to entertain us on Saturday evening.  

Old Chapel Farm is an inspirational place to spend time – don’t be surprised if you go away changed! Their website says: Old Chapel Farm is a place where strangers come together and different cultures meet. Through living and working together, volunteers are able to appreciate the complex interactions between people, animals, climate and land involved in food production. And hopefully make deeper connections.
