Does WWOOF Screen Members

At WWOOF we do not perform background checks though we do reserve the right to. WWOOF Australia is a fantastic organisation that has been around for over 36 years. It is the leader in linking volunteers and hosts together, enabling lifetime experiences and education for both parties.

My Marker is not showing on the Map

If your marker is not showing on the Map Search, this means you have not updated your Location as yet. Simply click the My Profile menu at the top of the page, and select Location. Click Edit Location and enter your address or just drag the marker to your current location on the map.

How to leave a Review

WWOOFers and Hosts can leave reviews for each other, on each others Profile Pages. Simply go to the Members Profile page you wish to leave a Review for, scroll down to the bottom of their Profile, and click Add Review.

If you have negative feedback, please discuss this with the other Member before you make it public. No abuse will be accepted and your Profile will be disabled immediately if you act carelessly.

What if things don't work out

Upon signing up you agree to our terms and conditions and must adhere to the guidelines. Either party has the right to end the relationship. Always understand that WWOOFers can come from different countries with different cultural ideals so when you start your first contact with the potential WWOOFer as a host, be sure you have outlined very clearly what you would like the WWOOFer to do during their stay with you.

This applies to WWOOFer Volunteers as well. Make sure you are very clear as to what your Host Farm expects of you.

Sometimes for whatever reason the visit may not work out as you might have expected, sometimes miscommunication or unreasonable expectations from either party.

Be honest and graceful explain its just not working out and remember (if you’re a Host Farm) the WWOOFer might need transport to a train station, bus stop or need time to find another host.

So if you feel it’s not a right fit act on it immediately, you are not required to keep the WWOOFer, or stay at a Host Farm if it is not working out.

WWOOF Australia has a Complaints Procedure which we take very seriously. Any arrangement and agreement made is your responsibility, so ensure you set the arrangement up correctly so the potential WWOOFer or Host Farm has a great understanding of your expectations before you connect.
