return of the WWOOF calendar

Feb 25, 2017

Despite the success of the WWOOF UK calendar in 2016, some of you may have noticed we didn’t generate one for 2017. The calendar’s production in 2016 was very much a labour of love and, as we had many competing priorities towards the end of last year, we decided, with regret, that we couldn’t fit one in.

However, the calendar will be back for 2018! We have decided to draw on our experience in 2015 and ensure we have copies available for sale by our Members Weekend in September and online thereafter. So, we need your photos!

We want the calendar to reflect what WWOOF is about and contain images of WWOOFY things. If you have photos of WWOOFers completing tasks (especially if you can see their happy, smiling faces!), particularly if they were taken in autumn or winter, so that we can remind people that growing and WWOOFing is a 365 day a year activity, please send them to info@wwoof.org.uk as soon as you can. Shots of animals being fed in the snow would fit the bill very nicely too…

Before you rush to send your favourite photo, do check that you are sending us the largest image you have; we think 2MB will be the smallest file size we can use to be able to produce good quality prints. It would be helpful to know where the photo was taken and by whom – and do please make sure you have the permission of anyone in the photo for it to be used in this way. We look forward to hearing from you – and thank you.

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...
