why WWOOF?

"I'm right now WWOOFing and it is the best experience in my life" Jaro from Spain, WWOOFing in the UK

"As a result [of doing some local WWOOFing] I sought out stuff on my own doorstep and I kicked myself at my ignorance! I have joined several groups and my network has mushroomed!" Ruth, Yorkshire

"WWOOF is an astonishing key to unique experiences."  The Guardian
