As of 23rd March 2020, people living in the UK have been told to stay at home and:
- Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
- Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
- Wash your hands as soon as you get home
The movement of people is possible only in the case of key workers, to buy essential supplies or for serious health reasons. If you have health concerns, follow NHS advice here
WWOOFing does not fall within any of these categories.
The current scenario therefore sees us forced to advise against arranging or accepting new WWOOF visits, or the movement of volunteers from host to host. If at all possible, you should extend your stay at your current host. The only other suggested alternative would be for non-UK nationals to return to country of residence, if that is possible.
We hope normality will return later in the spring and you will be able to continue with your WWOOFing exchanges. In the mean time, we are committed to helping those who need clarification or assistance – you can contacts us on email@example.com
Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
