Has anyone on these forum boards ever done anything through Wwoof or know someone who has gone through with the program?
I am probably going to do one in Spain with a buddy for about 10-12 weeks and I was hoping people could share their personal experiences with the program.
Things to address would be your expenses when you arrived there, the type of activities you performed and of course which country you went to!
Thank you!

  • edit* Just to clarify, Wwoof is an international program which stands for World-Wide Opportunities for Organic Farming. Basically people volunteer to work on farms and have their basic living expenses covered by the hosts. It gives you an opportunity to experience the land, culture and people in a relatively cheap and slow way.

Yes, have done in Australia, worked on a tropical flower farm in Queensland and a berry farm in Tasmania, very much enjoyed both. Not done in Europe.

Aloha,

I work on Dharma Farms in Hawaii. We mainly grow Noni fruit which is a medicinal fruit but there is also plenty of mangos, bananas, avocados, jack fruit, and various other tropical fruits.

The work fare is 3 hours a day, 6 days a week. We work, surf, and practice bhakti yoga. There is always plenty of food. We are drug free, vegetarian farmers, interested in raising our consciousness through activities that are in the mode of goodness.

Check out the Dharma Farms website at http://www.dharmafarms.info

Dharma Farms is accepting workers/woofers/volunteers.

Aloha!
