We continue to get complaints from WWOOFers about hosts not responding to applications…and from host about WWOOFers not responding to their questions! So dear members, please do try and remember good communications are the key to a good WWOOFing visit and send timely messages to each other, because you both get frustrated when that doesn’t happen!
- Before you accept a stay, arrange a phone call / Skype / WhatsApp /Face Time / Messenger with each other. This way you can find out everything you’d like to know.
- Hosts – Don’t leave big gaps in between communications. A few days before your WWOOFer is due, get in touch just to check that they are still on their way.
- WWOOFers – if you have messaged a few hosts and have been accepted by one, please let the other hosts know that you have a confirmed stay, don’t leave them waiting.
- Exchange phone numbers so you can get in touch with each other if things change at the last minute.
