Agriculture Internships on Organic Farms Across the USA!
- Internship posted by Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms, USA® (WWOOF-USA)
Hours per week
Time commitment is determined between the visitor and host farmer and can be tailored accordingly. Year-round opportunities available.
Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms, USA (WWOOF-USA®) is part of a worldwide effort to link visitors with organic farmers, promote an educational exchange, and build a global community conscious of ecological farming practices.
Visitors, or ‘WWOOFers’, spend about half of each day helping out on a host farm, learn about organic farming and sustainable agriculture, and receive room and board during their visit – with no money exchanged between hosts and WWOOFers.
WWOOF is an educational and cultural exchange program. WWOOFing is a way to learn practical farming skills, be part of the organic agriculture movement, and experience the heart of American agrarian culture. Internship opportunities are available year-round for varying lengths of time on host farms across the USA.
The WWOOF-USA® Host Farm Directory lists 2,000+ organic farms and gardens across the country. Any farm, community or garden project using organic methods that would like to participate in a cultural and educational exchange may join the program.
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, beekeeping, 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.
