Can I charge? Do I get paid?
WWOOF is voluntary, Hosts do not charge the WWOOFer for their stay and WWOOFers do not get paid for their work.
WWOOF is about educational and cultural exchange. WWOOFers help out hosts on their property for 4-5 hours each day and in exchange for their help they are fed 3 meals and provided with reasonable accommodation. The idea is that WWOOFers help hosts get the jobs done on their property while WWOOFers are given the opportunity to learn about organics and engage with the “real NZ”.
