Important information on Coronavirus

Mar 17, 2020

As of 23rd March 2020, people living in the UK have been told to stay at home and:

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 info@wwoof.org.uk

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

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...
