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.

ONE YEAR MEMBERSHIP COSTS: Belize is $5, Guatemala $4, Mexico $20, Costa Rica $16, Colombia $18, Ecuador $10, Venezuela $10, Brasil $38, Argentina $30, Chile $40 (all in US Dlls). In addition to your payment, you must create a personal profile on WWOOF Costa Rica (for Costa Rica membership), WWOOF Mexico (for Mexico membership) and WWOOF Latin America (for all other Lat Am countries).

WWOOF organizations in Latin America are affiliated to the International WWOOF Association (www.wwoof.org and www.wwoofinternational.org) which promotes environmentally friendly farming and consumer habits by helping bridge the gap between consumers and environmentally-responsible farmers.
