what have you been up to?

Oct 14, 2018

At this time of year the theme is harvest and I’d like to encourage you all to tag us in your social media posts. 

In this way I can see that you are happy to share your photo of that huge marrow or the vibrant colours of the berries you’ve just picked. Hosts have a golden opportunity to take snapshots of WWOOFing in action; these pics are often the best way to convey what we do to those who don’t know. 

Do follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and please invite your friends to follow us too. We’d love to make WWOOF a household name. We feel it’s well WWOOF the effort 🙂 

Thank you, Mike Hammer
