WWOOF at Mandala Gardens!


WWOOF stands for Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms. If you would like to learn sustainable farming skills, Mandala Gardens will host you, teach you, and feed you! To learn more about WWOOFing, go to www.wwoofusa.com. To WWOOF at Mandala Gardens, please contact us.


From the WWOOFUSA website:


"‘WWOOFers’, spend about half a day helping out on a host farm, learn about the organic movement 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.


The WWOOF-USA® Host Farm Directory lists 2,026 organic farms (not necessarily USDA certified organic) 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®."
