Anyone over the age of 17 can join WWOOF. WWOOF (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) Australia members can be of any nationality - including Australian. It should be noted that participants require a level of maturity and independance to participate in the program.
Due to the physical and mental demands of the WWOOF experience, participants should have at least average physical fitness. The nature of the program is such that it is generally unsuitable for persons suffering from psychiatric or psychological conditions.
Working in exchange for food and accommodation is the basis of all WWOOFing. Time spent working varies according to the degree of self-sufficiency expected, how busy the host is at the time of your visit and other factors - but it should average out at about a half day's work for a full day's keep. We suggest that 4 to 6 hours a day is fair exchange for a days full board and accommodation.
