What’s new at WWOOF?

Mar 19, 2024

Our new look website has arrived and we hope you like the re-designs and improved user experience. The website is now more mobile phone friendly and other features such as the map and search functionality have been much improved to make planning your WWOOFing trips easier.

As we move into springtime we are starting the search for several new Trustees to join our current Board. We welcome interest from anyone who believes WWOOFing can help make a better, fairer and greener world and has the energy and commitment to make WWOOFing the ‘go to’ way to experience and learn about sustainable ways of living and growing.

This podcast series aims to share practical tips on WWOOFing, how our organisation works behind the scenes and some of the history of the movement. The idea is that through interviews with some of the key people who animate our community – WWOOF coordinators, WWOOFers and Hosts – you’ll get to learn more about us.

In Episode 15 Rodrigo Rocha chats with Basil Black, coordinator of the Federation of WWOOF Organisations and Sarah Potenza, Executive Director for WWOOF USA, about WWOOF’s evolution and exciting future projects. They discuss our goals of enhancing the WWOOF community, empowering hosts and WWOOFers with new communication channels, more ways to connect, and a WWOOF App on the horizon!

The best perennial on the plot? Spring and early summer is the time when perennial vegetables are most welcome. In March there’s the first rhubarb stalks (perhaps the only vegetable to get coated in custard) and towards the end of April the first delicate spears of...
