A brief history of WWOOF
For members, a WWOOF Host invites people to come to their place and work usually about 6 hours a day in return for their daily food, boarding and the experience of sharing daily life with the people who live and work there. The first WWOOF organization originated in the Europe in the 1970s, and spread to more than 40 countries throughout the world, some of the leading groups today being Australia, New Zealand, and us in Japan. 'WWOOF' was originally an acronym for 'Weekend Workers on Organic Farms' and a people wanted to visit farms at times other than weekends came to mean 'Willing Workers On Organic Farms' and now some call it "World Wide Workers On Organic Farms". These days not only farms, but other kinds of places where people, businesses & families are involved in all kinds of lifestyles and activities are becoming Hosts, thereby giving WWOOFers access to a greater diversity of experience and learning.
