What is WWOOF Germany?

Organisation / Membership

WWOOF Germany was founded in the autumn of 1987 and is based on an idea that was developed in the UK in the 1970s. Since 1992 WWOOF Germany is a registered charity. We have to charge a small membership fee to cover our expenses. Our staff works has been working on a voluntary basis since we started. Due to the growing work-load we recently decided to establish one paid position that manages incoming routines. All other work will still be done by our team of volunteers – including this funny translation :-) In order to help us keep up with the costs we kindly ask not to pass on our host list to non-members. Please also remember to renew your membership in due time. It saves us a lot of work.
You are a member of WWOOF Germany once you have paid your membership fee and agreed to the statute of our charity. Membership is valid for one year and terminated automatically after that. You can renew it any time.
