WHAT IS WWOOF Brazil?
WWOOF Brazil is an information service linking travellers like you with organic farms in Brazil. By joining WWOOF Brazil you get our listing of member farms where you can stay from a week to several months.

Farms listed in WWOOF Brazil are part of a world-wide effort to promote the concept of organic farming, sustainable agriculture and responsible consumer habits. As part of this effort, host farms offer WWOOF members the opportunity to learn by doing. As a guest in a WWOOF farm your learning experience is based on you participating in the daily chores of running the farm. In doing so, you can learn a variety of techniques employed by member farms including organic farming, Permaculture and Biodynamics. In addition to learning about organic farming, you can also learn about the local ecology and culture while getting to meet fun and interesting people.

Daily chores at member farms may include harvesting, preparing soil for planting, milking, cleaning pens, digging trenches, maintaining fences and such. Each farm has its own chores, rules and schedules. Please get more information directly with the farms you are interested in working at.

WWOOF Brazil is affiliated to the International WWOOF Association www.wwoof.org and www.wwoofinternational.org which promotes environmentally friendly farming and consumer habits by helping bridge the gap between consumers and environmentally-responsible farmers. WWOOF Brazil compiles for its members a list of host farms throughout Brazil. With this list, you can contact the farm(s) which you wish to visit and make the necessary arrangements for your stay.
