WHAT IS WWOOF Latin America?

WWOOF Latin America is an information service linking volunteers with organic farms in Latin America. 

Farms listed WWOOF Latin America 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. 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 member 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. You, the volunteer, are fully and completely responsible for planning and executing your volunteer experience. You are responsible for your own safety and well being and for vetting the farm at which you intend to volunteer.

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. 

Become a member! Step 1 - Create a profile by clicking on SIGN IN using your email and creating a password. Step 2 - Purchase a membership (payments can take up to 4 days to be processed). 3- Once approved, log in to contact the farms and plan your visit.

WWOOF Mexico and WWOOF Costa Rica require you to create a profile on their WWOOF Websites. 

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). Use the same email for payment and profile.

WWOOF organizations in Latin America are affiliated to the Federation of WWOOF Organisations (FoWO) and WWOOF International Association (www.wwoof.net  and www.wwoofinternational.org). Both organisations promote environmentally friendly farming and consumer habits by helping bridge the gap between consumers and environmentally-responsible farmers.
