WWOOF LATIN AMERICA

Is a free Social Network for those interested in WWOOFing 'volunteering' in Latin American organic farms. Here you can link to the countries with WWOOF organizations in Latin America, and communicate with fellow WWOOFers.

To WWOOF/volunteer in a Latin American country, you need to purchase a membership of the WWOOF organization of each country you plan to visit.   Once you are a member, you will have access to the country's host farm list and you will be able to contact each farm directly to arrange your visit. 

Farms listed in WWOOF organizations are part of a world-wide effort to promote the concept of organic farming, sustainable agriculture and responsible consumer habits. As part of this effort, host farms offer WWOOF members the opportunity to learn by doing. Listed farms will host WWOOF members free of charge in exchange for farm work, typically for 5-6 hours a day for 5-6 days a week. WWOOFers are responsible for their travel to and from the farm, transportation, personal expenses, etc. 

As a guest in a WWOOF farm your learning experience is based on you participating in the daily chores of running the farm. In doing so, you can learn a variety of techniques employed by member farms including organic farming, Permaculture and Biodynamics. In addition to learning about organic farming, you can also learn about the local ecology and culture while getting to meet fun and interesting people. Your daily chores at WWOOF farms may include harvesting, preparing soil for planting, milking, cleaning pens, digging trenches, maintaining fences and such; and generally involve about 5 to 7 hours per day, 5 to 6 days per week.Each farm has its own chores, rules and schedules. In exchange for their work,farms offer WWOOFers, free lodging and 3 meals per day.

WWOOFers are fully responsible for all aspects of planning and executing their visit to the organic farm including their safety an well-being.

WWOOF Host Farms Agreement

In order to be listed with us, host farms should meet the basic requirements of organic or sustainable farming practices.

Organic: A substance, as a fertilizer or pesticide, of animal or vegetable origin. Grown or made without the use of artificial chemicals

Sustainable: involving harvesting methods that do not completely use up or destroy natural resources/ecosystems.

Host Farms should be able to host volunteers by offering a learning experience, suitable accommodations and 3 meals a day FREE of charge and  in exchange only for WWOOFers' work at the farm. Farms should be able to provide work for WWOOFers for about 5 or 6 hours a day for up to 6 days a week. No money (NADA de DINERO) is ever to be asked from WWOOFers in terms of fees, donations or contributions of any sort.  Farms must commit to always answering all emails or messages from WWOOFers (even if not needing their help at the moment) in no longer than two weeks.  

WWOOFers: if a host farm is not complying with this, please let us know at wwoofmail@yahoo.com
