The first WWOOF organization originated in England in the 1970s, and since then has spread to more than 40 countries throughout the world.
The word 'WWOOF' was originally an acronym for 'Weekend Workers on Organic Farms' and then as circumstances changed with people wanting to visit farms at times other than weekends came to mean 'Willing Workers On Organic Farms'.
These days not only farms, but other places, businesses and families are becoming Host Establishments, thereby giving WWOOFers access to a greater diversity of experience. A WWOOF Host Establishment invites people to come to their establishment and work usually about 4 to 6 hours a day in return for their daily food, boarding and the experience of living with the people who live and work at the Host Establishment.
