We’re really chuffed with the response we’ve had to the launch of our WWOOFing taster days, which took place in York on Saturday 24th February. It was sold out!
Although we thought local people would be the first to sign up – in reality folk travelled from all over the country for this micro-WWOOFing experience.
As well as completing some farm tasks, eating good food and having the opportunity to ask lots of questions, the day included a short presentation that introduced these non-members to the wonderful world of WWOOF. Our aim was to equip them with the knowledge and confidence they need to contact hosts and become top quality volunteers.
The taster day fee was deducted from the cost of membership for anyone who signed up on the day.
Given this event’s popularity we’d like to do more; we have arranged one in Somerset in on 28th April and have a provisional date for North Scotland but we could do with more venues in Scotland, Wales around England. Taster Day details are here
If you are a host who would find promoting WWOOF a pleasure and have a task coming up that needs a team of people for a morning or afternoon, please message us using firstname.lastname@example.org.
All future Taster Days will be promoted on our home page.
