social media – what we’re doing

Jul 15, 2018

We’re getting noticed more and more on social media, largely due to the efforts of Mike Hammer and Scarlett Penn. We asked Mike for a bit of a catch up recently and here’s what he said.

As for me, I’m always on the look out for new #s – events and happenings that WWOOF UK can join-in on and get noticed by more people.

I just learned that it was #CowAppreciationDay2018 the other day for example.

We had our own # recently with the #awwoofersweek – a proactive host took photos of Ben, a photogenic willing WWOOFer, involved in various tasks during  seven days spent on the smallholding in Shropshire.

Any bloggers out there? I am always very happy to discover blogs that are created by WWOOFers or hosts. Usually they are written beautifully and have photos that enhance the stories so well. Let us know about your creativity and we can plug your work at the same time.

Generally I would like to encourage you all to take a little time to share some of your best WWOOFing moments on your social media platforms. In this way we can help to spread the word to as many people as possible, thereby offering an alternative way to live.

Don’t forget to tag @WWOOFUK

We have pages on: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo and YouTube but you can also contact me by email:

Many thanks.

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...
