Sign up and get growing!

WWOOF’s goal

is to provide individuals from all around the world the opportunity to:

  • gain practical skills in organic farming and gardening
  • experience rural living in the USA while sharing in the everyday life of your host
  • further the organic and sustainability movement
  • participate in a cultural exchange

The founding idea of WWOOF

is to facilitate exchanges around sustainable living and organic agriculture in pursuit of living in harmony with nature. WWOOF provides a way for people to learn about organic food, farming, and culture. In doing so it brings together people who share similar values and philosophies. WWOOF aims to provide helping hands to its hosts and at the same time allows visitors to learn what it means to grow one’s own food sustainably.

Since 2001, WWOOF-USA

has been creating transformational experiences on farms.  For more than two decades, WWOOF-USA has been on a mission to create empowering connections between organic food, farming, and people. We are part of a worldwide effort to link all people with organic farmers in an inclusive, safe, and welcoming environment and provide hands-on training to the next generation of farmers.
