Why I became a WWOOF Host
I’ve always been a peoples person and after 18 years nursing and a large family with 8 children it flowed on to WWOOFing. Wwoof was something we learned about when our children were very young and first used the organization at the home.
It followed on from then to over 12 years of meeting and sharing life with more than 550 volunteers. We now have friends all over the world and lots of amazing stories and spaces to share.
It’s a very fulfilling role being a host, meeting people and sharing our knowledge. The social side allows us also to learn about you and games and hobbies you play/do back home. Hosting also helps us to learn more about the world, your country and cultures.
The best part for us with hosting is making new friends!
