Any farm, community, homesteading or garden project using organic methods that wants to share knowledge and experience in; organics, self-sufficiency, permaculture, sustainability or bio dynamic growing, may join the program. (You do not have to be certified)
WWOOF is about Living and Learning on Organic Farms. WWOOF hosts are expected to use ecologically sound methods and involve their WWOOFers primarily in organic growing, farming or gardening. Can you show and teach your WWOOFers a variety of gardening and farming practices? Joining in with your daily family life is also part of the expectation.
If you do not fit these criteria, please sign up with our partner organisation Cultural Exchange.
People interested in living and learning on an organic property are welcome to join WWOOF.
New Zealand Immigration requires you to have a Working Holiday Visa even to volunteer. If you say that you are coming to “volunteer or work on a farm” and you do not have a Working Holiday Visa, there is a high probability that Immigration will not let you enter New Zealand.
For more information please go to https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/apply-for-a-visa and select the country you are from. Neither WWOOF New Zealand nor hosts are able to assist or support you with your Visa application.
If you intend to volunteer together with a partner or friend, you can join two people together on the same application for a single membership fee. When joining together you will only have one profile. Enter one e-mail address that you can share.
