Become a Woofer and Learn New Skills
The program is open to anyone 18 years of age or older, regardless of experience. WWOOF-USA® membership is valid for one year from the day it is purchased. We encourage all types of WWOOFers and hosts who would like to work together to strengthen sustainable agriculture to be a part of WWOOF-USA®.
WWOOF farms offer a variety of educational opportunities, including growing vegetables, keeping bees, building straw bale houses, working with animals, making wine, and much more. With farms in all 50 states, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, there is something for everyone.
For International WWOOFers: WWOOF-USA® cannot help you obtain a visa. You are responsible for your travel and/or student visa. The United States Embassy grants temporary visas to those individuals who want to enter the United States.
Applying for a visa should be done as soon as possible as it can take several months depending on the embassy in your country. We recommend first securing your visitor visa, and then joining WWOOF-USA®. For more information on visas, please read the Frequently Asked Questions. Please keep in mind that WWOOF is not paid work; hosts do not offer monetary compensation.
