news from the office

Feb 25, 2017


We recently made a change to our website so that all host Visitor Book comments and WWOOFer Feedback from hosts are switched on automatically.
This saves you from having to remember to switch them on yourself. You are still sent an email when you receive a new comment and it won’t be published unless you go to your account and make it live, so the comments are under your control.

 

From Mike Hammer: Hi folks, just letting you know that we have an active Facebook page plus Twitter and Instagram accounts. Please go and take a look and then ‘like us’ – as everyone and their dog is asking you to do these days.

The difference with our pages is that you can often happen upon something unexpected; a job opportunity, a new way of doing something or blogs from some really inspirational people who have been WWOOFing in a big way!

So take a look and browse through some of our previous posts; hopefully you will discover a new way to be informed. Facebook: WWOOF UK, Twitter: @wwoofuk, Instagram: @wwoofuk

 

At the moment there are two regional gatherings confirmed for the spring:
18th March 2017, Central Scotland: Edinburgh Botanical Gardens.

For more information please contact kgaffney@hotmail.co.uk.

8th April 2017, North East: Sheffield Organic Growers.
For more information please contact janeandtonyatthenursery@hotmail.co.uk.

Growing Roots in the Local Organic Farming Scene

By Aurora Moxon Hello, I’m Aurora, a thirty-two-year-old who is happiest in a pair of muddy wellies harvesting apples for scrumpy making, sowing veg for the year ahead and learning hands-on how to make cheese. If my hands aren’t covered in soil, scrumpy or curds, then...
