Organic Volunteers: Dig It.
Hard to believe, but its been 2.5 years since we first covered WWOOFing (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farm) on TreeHugger. And interest in growing organic food has sprouted beyond all expectation in the intervening time. Just have a peek at the gardening section of your fave bookshop. So we thought to replant the seed with this little nod to the US based Organic Volunteers. They see themselves as a "simple matchmaking service." They'll give you contact details of host farms whom you contact to see if they'd like a hand, in turn for your accommodation and food. No money normally changes hands. But you will get your hands dirty working in the gardens and learning firsthand about sustainable living. Conversely farms or projects needing willing workers can list with the organisation. Their site also has links to similar groups in other countries (as does our link in the earlier post, noted above.) ::Organic Volunteers.
