The World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms, commonly known as ‘WWOOF’, offers individuals the incredible opportunity to work on Organic farms in over 100 countries of the world. The way the system works is as follows: you apply to go live/work on an organic farm featured on the website, and once the match is made, you get the opportunity to live on the farm, working 3-4 days a work.
Although most farms will not pay you for your labor, they will shelter you and feed you for free. This method of travelling allows for individuals to travel for very cheap, and to there is no better to learn a culture than living with a native family.
