    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    I found out about WWOOF like 5 years before I joined as a friend said it worked really well and so I thought I’d give it a go. And since then, it’s been a wonderful experience! It’s also a good position for a non-monetary exchange to be the change – thank you WWOOF
