WWOOF in Germany
WWOOF is short for "World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms" and refers to the voluntary work on ecological farms all over the world.
For a specific period of time – from one week to some months (or longer) – you live and work on a farm for 4-6 hours per day. Tasks usually involve helping during harvest, renovation, kitchen duties, taking care of the animals and much more. For your support on the farm you get free meals and accommodation. WWOOFing is a great opportunity to get to know other cultures and countries with little money.
Information about the programme and contact details of national WWOOF organisations are provided by the international WWOOF-network: www.wwoof.net.
More information about WWOOFing in Germany is provided by the German WWOOF-association: www.wwoof.de. In order to contact farms, you need to register and become a member of the association. The membership costs 25€ for one year.
