▼Wtat’s WWOOF ?

First of all, Since I think that WWOOF is not well-known , I explain WWOOF shortly.

「You can stay for free instead of working」

This is the basic premise!!!

If that helps WWOOF stands for…
Willing Workers On Organic Farms  
World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms
Working Weekends On Organic Farms

There are various theory. In a nutshell , we are looking for people who want to work at organic farm.

Countries that have WWOOF

60 countries in 2015

 How to resister.

Those who is joining WWOOF are called “WWOOFer”.You need to pay for register fee in order to become WWOOFer. The price depends on countries tho, It’s about $50 to $100. By registering it , You can contact with host and see details about host. Even if you’re planning on joining WWOOF for a month, It’s worth paying, I believe!! It’s much cheaper than ordinal staying abroad, isn’t it. You will obtain a lot of precious experiences.

This time I registered on WWOOF Canada.

My name is Hodaka Kato and I’m from Japan. I’m 23 years old.

I wish that I work at Goatpride from March 15 to September 5(about half a year).
Can you accept me during this period ?

I participate in WWOOF for the first time ,but I look forward to that I can special experience.
And, I do want to work on my English.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I wrote about simple introduction and my will. It’s Ok, then they will ask you some questions. If there is anything you wanna ask, you can do here. I think the important question is “Why did you choose our farm?” You should prepare the answer or this .

Then, you need to decide the schedule that you meet when and where.

What if there in no WWOOF in the country which you wanna go?

Number of country which has WWOOF is increasing . But still a lot of countries don’t have WWOOF and most of jobs are about farm.

Good solution for this is “Workaway”
