Why I became a WWOOF Host
We became Wwoof hosts because we are a young family and we need help to be able to look after the land. Also to be able to run our life-changing programs in nature connection, bush crafts and survival skills we need help in setting up facilities and collecting materials to help make the programs run smoothly. Also we have been Wwoofers ourselves and we want to give people a wonderful Wwoofing experience.
