Welcome to WWOOF Germany


WWOOF Germany administers a list of organic farms, gardens and smallholdings that offer food and accommodation in exchange for practical help on their land. WWOOF facilitates contact between farms and interested volunteers. Everything else is arranged individually.

WWOOF Germany was founded in the autumn of 1987 and is based on an idea that was developed in the UK in the 1970s.
It is a registered charity (“Freiwillige Helfer/innen auf ökologischen Höfen. e.V.“).

WWOOF gives you the opportunity…

…to gain first hand experience of organic and biodynamic farming, growing and animal husbandry, find inspiration in like minded people, support the organic movement and to establish ties between producers and consumers. Why not try it out yourself? We'd be very happy to welcome you as a member of WWOOF Germany!

WWOOF is structured on a national level. While there are many WWOOF organisations around the world there is no central list or organisation, we are in fact a loose network of national organisations. There is no international WWOOF membership.
