    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    WWOOFing brings like minded people together who can share knowledge, wisdom and energy towards the goal of being regenerative for both nature and society. Hope Seed provides a working demonstration for those who are looking for an alternative to the current world’s troubles and offers a solutions based approach. For those looking for a life on the land and an alternative to consumerism and capitalism Hope Seed offers real hope. WWOOFing provides and opportunity to live that reality and to share ideas and hopes for a better future in a manner that steps to one side of the monetary system.
