Woofing…this odd acronym stands in fact for Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farming. The initiative aims at putting “100% organic” farms in touch with volunteers from all over the world who would like to gain experience of these farming techniques. The Website Woofing Italia is the meeting point for hosts (farmers) and volunteers.
What are the requirements to become a host? “The only criteria for your farm to become a host of WWOOF Italia is being 100% organic and its size can range from 1 to 1000 hectares!” explains the welcome pack for new hosts. The hosting farm must provide food and accomodation to the volunteers and teach them organic farming methods as an exchange for their work.
An interesting idea for all the farmers of Val Trebbia?
