WWOOF stands for Willing Workers on Organic Farms. Volunteers offer their time and labour in exchange for food, accommodation and training on an organic farm or garden.

This may be for a weekend, a week or for a much longer period. WWOOF projects currently exist in a hundred countries worldwide, but there is no international organisation or list. Conservation holidays are similar, but the volunteers pay something for being on the holiday.
