Working (and Sleeping Free) on an Organic Farm in Italy
Are you a stressed out (and perhaps economically-challenged) city dweller looking to experience a different way of life? WWOOF (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) was born out of the idealistic and mutually beneficial notion that organic farmers need extra hands and many of us feel a burning need to get our hands dirty. For a nominal fee, WWOOF Italia will provide a list of participating farms and you can decide: pick olives, milk goats, make wine, sell produce at farmers markets... In return for your hard work, you'll get free meals and accomodation and, best of all, immerse yourself in real Italian culture, learn the ins and outs of the organic movement, and go home knowing that you spent your vacation making the world a better place.
