Local WWOOF Triumph!

The return to the tradition of WWOOFing for the weekend got off to a great start in Todmorden on 16/17th November when 8 WWOOFers assembled at Back Rough Farm. Each of them had travelled no more than 50 miles (indeed some were so close they walked!). All of them were delighted to "meet the others," pick up some organic growing knowledge - but most importantly to be "doing it on their doorstep". There is already talk of a repeat event in the Spring and how these WWOOFers and hosts can remain networked inbetween. Amanda Pearson, WWOOF UK Volunteer Liaison, said "We are fascinated to see what spin offs occur from this event - and keen to support local WWOOFs in other areas." Hosts or volunteers wanting to make this happen near them should contact Amanda: amanda@wwoof.org.uk.
