    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    I became a WWOOF host so that I could share this most amazing experience of living close to nature and because it is an absolute pleasure to host people from all over the world, with all their experiences, knowledge and stories. I have been a WWOOF host for over 30 years and each and every WWOOFer becomes part of my extended family. WWOOFers are a delight and also fabulous for getting all those ‘I’ll get a round tuit’ jobs done.
