Can you get WWOOF UK into a festival?

We’ve got some funky new zines to spread the word of WWOOF and maybe you can help. Do you know about an event or festival we should be at, can you get us in to it? Or maybe you are already going and want to sing the praises of WWOOF for us? Please email us to let us know and we can see what we can do!

Maybe you are having, or going to, a local event with WWOOFy minded people? Do you want to distribute some of our new zines? Email us your address and number of people attending and we’ll send you some to further the word of WWOOF.

Can you could put up a poster on your university noticeboard, allotment group board, local food cafe or somewhere else? We can send you a digital copy of the poster or zine by email for you to print – just ask!
