WWOOF UK has been delighted to see a new initiative get off to a great start. With a desire to promote more local WWOOFing - earlier this week 220 volunteers within a 50 mile radius of Todmorden, West Yorkshire were invited to WWOOF in their own backyard. Places for the special weekend are filling fast making us think we have uncovered a real need. It seems particularly popular amongst new WWOOFers and those with responsibilities who can't get away for long. Anyone interested in kick starting local WWOOFing in their area?

From January 2012 biodynamic farming and horticulture can be learned on the Internet, according to the web-site of Biodynamic Agricultural College in Sussex, UK. The Distance Learning course is aimed at people who are working in a land-based profession: farmers and growers just as much as back-yard gardeners, vineyard managers, organic and biodynamic accreditation inspectors, etc.
