Why I became a WWOOF Host
We have being wwoofer host for 5 years. After returning from the city to my family/childhood home we found that we missed mixing with young people. Having wwoofers come to us enhanced our development of our property and renewed our time with young people. We have had several Wwoofers return to visit and bring their girlfriends or family members which has being a wonderful joy for us all. I have even visited one wwoofer in their home country on a trip overseas. The ultimate achievement of having wwoofers in our home is to extend our experience of the world.
