    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    I travelled extensively in my younger years, worked on farms and benefited from these experiences through out my life. Becoming a WWOOF Host allows me to give back to community my experiences and to benefit from the cultural exchange and new ideas. I hope that I teach our WWOOFers  how to farm sustainably and they learn about our culture which is quite different to many.
