Taster days 2019

Feb 23, 2019

Our next WWOOFing taster day will be in York on Saturday 30th March.

This time we will be offering potential WWOOFers the opportunity to meet not one, but three different hosts in the area and visit two different sites. Thanks to The Nursery, Devonshire Mill and The Croppers for giving our offer a new twist. We hope it will inspire people to consider serial stays and make the variety of experiences available more tangible.

We are also planning a family friendly taster day in Dumfries and Galloway on Saturday 11th May courtesy of Plunton House.

Participants will get advice tailored to WWOOFing with children that builds on our newsletter article on the topic.

We still have room for a few more taster days in the 2019 programme, particularly in April, June, July and October.

If you have a project planned for one of these months that would benefit from many hands for a few hours then a taster day may be for you.

We are open to suggestions for other themes for these events from any of you; do get in touch using tasters@wwoof.org.uk
