Hi, I'm having trouble seeing all the lists. I purchased a year long wwoof membership in September that included all of wwoof Latin America.

I'm having a problem viewing the Ecuador farm list. Its been over a week since I purchased my membership.

 I am trying to figure out if the farm located on St. Kitts/Nevis is still active? I contacted the person listed whose name is Judah and I haven't heard back yet.  Before I get a membership I just want to see if he is still farming there and if he might want to have us on his farm.

I recently purchased membership to the Mexico WWOOF with the understanding I would be able to access the independent Latin American farms.  Unfortunately it still says I am not a member. How do I remedy this?

I can't see a list of WWOOFing projects in Colombia, even though I have paid for that membership.

Any help would be greatly appreaciated.

I paid for the combined membership for Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Belize for $33. Although I am able to view the farms list for Costa Rica and been in touch with some of the farms, I am not able to see the farms list for Guatemala. It's empty. Can someone guide me through?

If you paid for WWOOF latin America get the money returned from your credit card company. I actually signed up twice but have since got my money returned.

Hi, so I am very interested in wwoofing in south America and Mexico but I live in the us and am a U.S. citizen. I tried to pay for a year membership but the usa was not a country listed when I was filling in debit card info. I am unsure how to go about this, and would appreciate assistance asap.

I have paid my membership for wwoof-Venezuela and am unable to access the farm lists. I have continuously tried following the link to only find that it sends me through the same cycle. There isn't a "Request Access" button to click, like the email suggests. I waited several days, thinking perhaps there was some processing time. I still have yet to see any farms via my account. Please Help!

I posted this about finca la amistad in the discussion, it may be more appropriate here. 

Hey guys, I just wanted to tell everyone about my experience at finca la amistad. I found the owner to be a very dishonest and oppressive person. I will only tell about the lies here because I don't want to waste my time on how I feel about him as a person, only the facts.

Examples of the dishonesty are:

From the farm:

Work is actually from 6:30-5:00 7 days a week (it can be 5 but you have to leave, "if we feed you you have to work")

The food is ALL bought from the town as he wasn't producing any vegetables besides a couple bushels of green peas and the odd tomato.

While not producing anything he could sell he was giving people classes about organic agriculture that they pay for (this one made me particularly sick because not only is he stealing locals money for bad information, if he convinces them to switch their farming style to his the families would lose everything (not that I don't support organic, I support their children more))

He was hired by a restaurant that wanted to be organic and to look organic to both grow food and put a garden in at the restaurant. He then went to the market and bought a bunch of plants which it would be almost impossible for them to be organic and put them in.

The chickens are NOT organic on the farm (when they are sick they get medicine in their water). I also have seen chemicals and insecticides in the store rooms, but never used personally. I did however feed the chickens medicine myself. 

They lend land to surrounding farmers (which we don't work alongside) that then have access to grow/care for their vegetables. I saw them spraying stuff on various occasions which i strongly suspect were chemicals, but, i have no proof or i would have reported him. 

From the website:

The picture of the "seminars" is not from the farm. Furthermore in my one month of experience at the farm there ARE NO SEMINARS it is only when he tricks a local ONE AT A TIME to come and pay for a "class" that they are held. He claims to have a lot of knowledge on the subject but in reality he has had no formal education on farming, biology or microbiology. This was very evident from day one.

If you switch the website from English to Spanish it doesn't only translate the page, it changes the text with the local people in mind that he is looking to swindle. Just read it and you can feel exactly what he is trying to do.

There is one worker on staff, the picture that shows a big happy family of workers is very misleading. Aside from the one worker they have told me that they will only have 1-2 volunteers ever and so if you see the pictures and expect a family that is not what you will get (not to say that the other person or two won't be your friend, you just won't have a community)

"We have started planting 4,000 thousand native hardwood, nut and fruit trees..." I was there and there was maybe 20-30 trees, most of which were non-native peach or avacado.

From the Facebook:

He has vehement rants on there which sound really nice to local people who have been wronged by chemicals and things of that nature but in real life he does nothing to support these veiws such as this - "Cuando comimos pan,de donde piensas viene el trigo? De Canada y el pan es de transgenico. Entonces con cada bocado de pan, nos estamos comiendo el glifosato y el material transgénico y por eso tenemois la epidemia de cancer, alergias, diabetes (1 y 2), autism en ninos, Parkinson, Alzheimers y metabolica sindromas." I ate bread from the panadaria EVERY DAY when I was on the farm. There are many other examples of this but I won't bother to post it here.

There is more on the other but i over the word limit her

I think this must be a scam. I have paid for a membership but never received a reply. The email address listed get rejected. Save you money.

Comment by Robert James Kulick on July 21, 2015 at 2:02am

I am not able to see the farm list anymore.  I bought a one year membership like three weeks ago, so why doesn't it let me see the farm list anymore?

Comment by Ben Walker on May 13, 2015 at 12:39pm

Comment by Eduardo Aguilar on April 6, 2015 at 6:34pm

Hi there, 

I am wondering if the transaction I did some days ago (I want to say March 25th) went through in purchasing the Colombia farm list. I am somehow unable to get into my credit card account right now, but wanted to check with you first.

Can you give me some hints whether it went through and how I can access the list?

Best regards,


Comment by Hans-Michael Lange on February 20, 2015 at 2:42pm


weeks ago I purchased a membership of wwoof Peru, but can`t get access to a farmlist. >What`s the problem?

Comment by Amandine on January 25, 2015 at 4:37am
