Patchwood Farm is a proud host member of Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) Canada. WWOOF Canada is part of the Federation of WWOOF Organizations, a worldwide community that promotes awareness of ecological farming practices by providing volunteers with the opportunity to live and learn on organic properties.  WWOOF was founded in 1971 in the UK, came to Canada in 1985, and now exists in more than 100 countries worldwide!

WWOOF helps to connect farm volunteers (“WWOOFers”) with farm hosts. Volunteers offer helping hands on the farm in exchange for good food, comfy accommodation and learning opportunities in organic farming.

Volunteer Activities

During a stay on our farm, WWOOFers may be involved in any aspect of our day-to-day activities. We have a long, ongoing To Do List that changes along with the weather and the seasons. Some examples of jobs that WWOOFers might engage in are:

  • work in the garden (preparing beds, planting, weeding, harvesting)IMG_8908
  • turning compost
  • preparing planting areas and planting perennials
  • small building projects
  • stacking firewood
  • fencing
  • feeding pigs & chickens
  • collecting and sorting eggs
  • wild foraging
  • general landscaping work around the house
  • and LOTS more!

We’ve got a lot of variety in the work we do and we have fun while we’re at it!
