LLOOF online e-learning project

Nov 29, 2015

WWOOF UK’s fundraiser, Adam Cade, also co-ordinates the LLOOF project and gave an inspirational talk during our member’s weekend describing their plans and aspirations. 

He told us the recent LLOOF (Living and Learning on Organic Farms) conference in Italy concluded that the best way forward would be to develop an interactive website to show working people with real experiences, through video presentations, providing opportunities for feedback and interaction based on the conviction that farm volunteering is a practical learning process in an informal situation, undertaken in a hands-on way.

Adam gets his hands dirty...As many volunteers already produce short videos of their experiences on blogs or YouTube, it will be a short step to ask for specifically tailored video interviews with their host, and short case studies from different countries, thus enabling hosts to directly share their knowledge with many volunteers. Adam showed us some sample videos and also improvised one about compost making to demonstrate just how easy it is. 

The LLOOF online learning guide will be free to anyone who wants to learn more about growing food organically and living more. Please see lloof.eu and edvorg.weebly.com. If you would like to be involved and want to contact Adam directly please use adam@wwoof.org.uk
