WWOOF-Willing Workers On Organic Farms

Author: Glenn, Issue: July 2004, Topic: Travel

WWOOF Japan is a membership allowing people to go to visit and stay on farms and other places in Japan at no financial cost in return for helping the people at the place they decide to go to with the work they do. The first WWOOF organization originated in England in the 1970s, and since then has spread to more than 40 countries throughout the world. The word 'WWOOF' was originally an acronym for 'Weekend Workers on Organic Farms' and then as circumstances changed with people wanting to visit farms at times other than weekends came to mean 'Willing Workers On Organic Farms'. These days not only farms, but other places, businesses and families are becoming Host Establishments, thereby giving WWOOFers access to a greater diversity of experence. You can see our details on our website at http://www.wwoofjapan.com in both Japanese and English.
