We take a look at WWOOFing — World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms — an international movement that started in the UK in 1971 that connects volunteers with organic farmers around the world. In return for volunteer help, WWOOF hosts offer food, accommodations, and opportunities to learn about organic farming. Sarah Potenza, Incoming Board President of WWOOF USA, joins us, along with Amanda Provencher, who, with her husband, hosts several WWOOFers every summer at their farm, and Jonathan Tannenbaum, who recently returned from a four-month WWOOFing trip in Italy.
