WWOOF LATIN AMERICA NOW HAS A SINGLE MEMBERSHIP FOR ALL OF ITS AFFILIATED COUNTRIES (Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Colombia).
WWOOF Latin America™ has been helping travelers volunteer on organic farms for over a decade. 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.
WWOOF organizations in Latin America promote environmentally friendly farming and consumer habits by helping bridge the gap between consumers and environmentally-responsible farmers.
