...living, learning & sharing organic lifestyles

The founding idea of WWOOF...

...is to facilitate exchanges around organic use of the land in pursuit of a way of living in harmony with nature. WWOOF provides a way for people to learn about organic food, agriculture and sustainable ways of living. In doing so it brings together people who share similar values and philosophies. WWOOF aims to provide helping hands to its hosts and at the same time allows visitors to learn what it means to grow one's own food sustainably.

WWOOF is a worldwide network of organizations

WWOOF Spain is part of the Federation of WWOOF Organisations, a worldwide community that promotes awareness of ecological farming practices and sustainable lifestyles.

WWOOF was founded in 1971 in the UK and is one of the world’s first educational and cultural exchange programs. Today, WWOOF is in more than 132 countries around the world (and growing).


Since 2007 WWOOF Spain

...has been connecting local sustainable farmers and growers with visitors for a cultural and educational experience, focused on organic farming and sustainable living.

Our national team is knowledgeable about our country so that we can provide the best assistance and support to our members.


WWOOF Hosts...

... pursue and promote a wide variety of sustainable lifestyles. Some are individuals or families who have a piece of land and desire to cultivate produce for themselves, some are communities where each individual contributes to make their collective as self-sufficient as possible, and others earn a living from their work on their land. The wide range of different hosts and activities should ensure that each person WWOOFing in Spain will find a place that suits them. A description of each host and their activities is listed in the host directory.


... get involved with many different activities such as gardening, making compost, animal care, chopping wood, helping with eco-construction projects and much more. WWOOFers in Spain can develop many practical skills and learn about many different aspects of organic agriculture and sustainable living, depending on which host they choose and which activities they participate in.
