Help tell the #wwoof story

May 18, 2019

Mike Hammer, who manages most of our social media presence, writes: Social media are powerful tools which can be a force for good or bad. I feel that we all have the opportunity to take part in producing significant news stories which can and will contribute to the healing of our planet. These media are full of stories because we love a story and each of us has our own story to tell. I believe that WWOOFing encounters are brimming full of meaningful life lessons, hope, kindness, creativity and heart connection.

Many of us are using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, so please share a post, RT a Tweet or better still create a post or video yourself and tag @WWOOFUK. By using #WWOOFUK, #WWOOF or #WWOOFing in your content you will give others the chance to learn about WWOOF from you or perhaps build confidence to take the first step.

I love it when I discover a blog by hosts recording the story of their land and its visitors, or a blog by a WWOOFer(s) who is recording their adventure. Both are ways in which I can spread the message about WWOOFing.

So please explore our social media and share the good news with others. Together we can make a difference. We are all influencers (no matter how many ‘followers’ or ‘likes’ we have). Be the change.

By Joel Rouse WWOOFing in Pembrokeshire was like being in another world despite being only 235 miles from where I live and work as a photographer and part-time travel blogger. London is home, and I work on Whitehall - one of London's tourist hotspots, topped and...

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...
