WWOOFers must be willing to do 4 to 6 hours of farming /gardening work in exchange for a days food and board (depending on factors like season, workload, quality of their work and the accommodation, etc). These hours can be flexible so WWOOFers have free days but this must be negotiated with the Host.

If you do not have a WWOOF membership, a Host can arrange for you to join WWOOF and have immediate access to the WWOOF App or have your WWOOF Book sent to the Hosts address, you will need to show the host your Photo ID and pay them for your membership.
