Join as a host

Hosts in Northern Ireland - please register with WWOOF Ireland at http://www.wwoof.ie/

Before you apply to become a WWOOF UK host, please click and read this link to information for potential hosts.

To renew as a host, please sign in to your account (this bit  is very important - you must be signed in) and then you can use the renew membership link in the left hand menu.

There are two ways to apply to become a WWOOF host in the UK: online or by post.

Online application

If you join online, you will first need to give us a few contact details, choose a username and password and then choose whether to pay now (by credit or debit card, paypal) or later (cheque or cash). The next stage is to fill in further details about your farm, smallholding or house.  This will give us some idea of your suitability and will allow us to move your application on to the next stage.  You will be able to update and edit this information in the future, so don't worry too much about getting it right the first time, but do please try and fill in all the boxes.

When you have completed this second phase, and within two weeks, our Host Contact will call you to talk through your application. Once you are approved and your payment is processed, you will be listed in the online WWOOF directory and published in the next host book. We allow 3 months from the date of payment for this process to be completed; if you choose not to complete within that time frame the membership fee will be forfeit. 

If your application is not succesful, we will refund your payment.

Browser cookies are required to become a member and log in at this site.  Only proceed if you give consent for this.

By post

If you prefer, you can print an application form and send it to us by post along with your payment. Within two weeks of the application being processed our Host Contact will call you to talk about your application. Once you are approved and your payment is processed, you will be listed in the online WWOOF directory and published in the next host book. If at any point in the future you would like to edit your details online, email hosts@wwoof.org.uk and we will give you a username and password to edit your information or, if you prefer, edit it for you.
